The article reports that India's Chemplast Sanmar is undertaking a program to eliminate liquid effluents in its manufacturing units. According to P.S. Jayaraman, Chemplast managing director, the company is investing Rs 50 crore to the program to ensure that its manufacturing plants in Mettur, Karaikal and Cuddalore, would be discharge-free starting January 2008. All liquid effluents from the three plants would be processed to separate the solids, usually salt, from the water and further treated.
