Mobile Testing Services to assist you to adapt to sustainable solutions
In a developing country like Bangladesh, population growth, rapid industrial development, lack of waste water management and unfavorable practices such as release of chemical effluents into canals and other water sources without adequate treatment is disturbing the eco system and putting undue pressure on available resources. Envisaging the growth of the textile sector in the near future, the environmental impact is anticipated to worsen. Presently, more than 1800 washing, dyeing and finishing processing units of garment and textile industries are located in and around Dhaka. Most of these facilities, due to lack of knowledge, little access to information, limited resources and testing facilities, release waste water containing complex mixtures of hazardous chemicals, both, organic and inorganic into water bodies.
How will the mobile testing laboratory help you?
The objective of the program is to enhance waste water monitoring and management by collecting and analyzing samples of waste water and sludge from the factory. Test methods are in line with the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) and World Health Organization (WHO) methods. The program will also conduct workshops and seminars to scale up the overall information and knowledge available to the stakeholders.
