Out of that with only 9 MLD polluted water being treated at STPs, the remaining 41 MLD polluted water was being discharged in the river directly.The new plant would be of 41 MLD capacities, would cost around Rs 300 crores and tannery owners will have to contribute 25 percent of the cost. In zero liquid discharge plant the entire water is recycled and treated water would be sent back to tanneries for use and the residue will be collected and disposed separately.
