FAISALABAD, (Pakistan Point News - 04th Nov, 2016 ) : A three-member Turkish delegation Friday visited Faisalabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FCCI) to discuss environmental issues of textile city. The delegation comprised of Miss Ozlem ODA Tekir, senior business development manager, Durn Bos, and Miss Ezlam Azlas of 'iO' Environmental Solutions, Istanbul Turkey. Ozlem introduced her firm, and said that it was dedicated to nature and humanity.
It was providing consultancy in addition to offering permanent, modern and scientific solutions by integrating knowledge and experience of leading experts of the specific field. She said her firm can help Pakistan in construction of dams, waste-water treatment, renewable energy and other environment related issues. President FCCI Engineer Muhammad Saeed Sheikh said Faisalabad is dominated by small and medium textile processing units. The major export oriented industries have their own arrangement to treat their water effluent but small and medium units have no readily available solutions because of their financial constraints.
He said for such units combined water treatment plant is only option and in this connection WASA is already conducting a study to set up combined water treatment plants and Paharang and Maddoanna drains. Engineer Muhammad Rizwan Ashraf, chairman FCCI Standing Committee on Environmental Issues, said almost all industrial units pay drainage charges to WASA and hence it is its responsibility to set up combined water treatment plants. He told that industrial discharge is immediately diluted as soon as it is mixed with the domestic sewage water and thus it has no negative impact on the aquatic life. Vice President FCCI Engineer Ahmed Hassan told that FCCI has 5,000 members and the information about iO could be disseminated to the business community through its efficient IT link.
