Chief executive officer Avtar Singh said, the meeting was conducted with a purpose to listen to grievances of industry and to draw pan to improve functioning of society.
Singh said, “Reducing water consumption in any industry can be of great importance for reducing the level of emergence of pollutants, so water management can play an important role in this direction. With this purpose, we will be engaging a New Delhi based firm for teaching the industry lessons on water management.”
Besides monitoring of industry by Punjab Pollution Control Board (PPCB) the awareness among the industry on the environmental concerns is of great importance to reduce pollution level. The meeting also realised that upgrading the technology was required to reduce the pollution level in industry.
The members demanded that the electroplating industry in city working from mix land areas at present should be given land to develop a cluster so that the effluent from these units could be managed efficiently.
Members also decided to meet PPCB officials to avoid unnecessary inspections.
