SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT UNDER ENVIRONMENTAL & CHEMICAL POLICY FOR TEXTILE PROCESSING

SOLID WASTE

SOLID WASTE

Compliance suppliers should only send waste to disposal when all other safe opportunities for recycling and reuse have been explored. Empty chemical drums and boxes can be reused, waste fabric can be sold to textile waste processors, and solid waste from ETPs can in some areas be used as a fertilizer. However, ETP sludge can contain dangerous chemicals and its use and disposal will be subject to varying controls and permissions from the appropriate authorities must be sought before its use. If and when solid waste has to be disposed of, it must be done in accordance with the local and national regulations.

The calorific value of solid waste is relatively high and could be used as a fuel for boilers or heating systems. However, the unauthorised burning of solid waste is not permitted by environmental & chemical policy for textile processing as solid waste may release dangerous gases during burning that breach air consent and/or pollution regulations. Permission from the appropriate authorities must be sought before solid waste is considered as a fuel source.
