Status of CETPUpdated on : 21 Sep 2017

Assessment of Common Effluent Treatment Plants (CETPs) in the industrial clusters comprising of medium and small scale industries

Small Scale Industries (SSI) generally find it difficult to establish and operate individual effluent treatment plant due to their limited size and scale of operations. However, as SSI are generally located at industrial areas/estates, the concept of Common Effluent Treatment Plant (CETP) for the effluents from the industrial cluster has been developed to achieve satisfactory treatment through collective efforts. The monitoring and enforcement of a CETP as a single pollution source also become easier for regulatory agencies as compared to monitoring of large number of ETPs of individual SSI units.

Central Pollution Control Board carried out study during 2011-12 for assessment of actual need for common effluent treatment plants in the country and to know the industrial clusters to be serviced by these CETPs. The study has revealed that 193 Common Effluent Treatment Plants (CETPs) have been installed in the country, which serve 212 industrial areas/estates.
