Ten textile dyeing factories in Thailand have signed of a MoU with the Department of Industrial Works (DIW) to implement a pilot project for treatment of wastewater.
Somsak Jantararoungtong, who signed the MoU on behalf of DIW, said wastewater released from textile units would be measured as per ISO 26000 and DIW standards during the project implementation phase.
Members of community living in the vicinity of textile units would be imparted more information and understanding of laws related to industrial units and wastewater treatment.
After an eight-month monitoring period, based on the performance of the ten participating textile units, a guideline would be framed for the use of other factories.
The industrial sector accounts for 15 percent of Thailand’s total wastewater release.
