National Green Tribunal withdraws order against BCPL

From our Staff Correspondent
Dibrugarh, March 8: “It is pertinent to mention that taking note of misrepresentation of facts and the court being misled in a recent case, the National Green Tribunal has withdrawn its order against BCPL. With this, BCPL’s stance stands vindicated. However, BCPL has been adhering to all prescribed environmental norms and committed to creating a clean and green environment in its surroundings,” informed the MD of BCPL, AK Singh during a media interaction event held at the BCPL premises on Tuesday.
 Underscoring the importance BCPL attaches to protecting the environment and ecology, he asserted, “As a responsible corporate citizen, BCPL is very sensitive to environment protection and follows the path of zero deviation very seriously. The effluents generated in the plant are treated in its state-of-the-art Effluent Treatment Plant, the critical parameters of which are monitored and controlled on round-the-clock basis before discharge. All the critical parameters of liquid or gaseous discharge are hooked online to Central Pollution Control Board servers through which it is being monitored. As a measure of abundant precaution, the company has engaged a recognized third party which also carries out testing of discharges on periodic basis.”
 He added that despite serious challenges and odds faced by the company on various fronts, including supply of feedstock and critical chemicals that have limited availability locally, the company was operating at an average capacity utilization of approximately 75 per cent and expected to touch the 80 per cent mark by the close of the current financial year. Singh also expressed his gratitude on behalf of BCPL to all the stakeholders for their support.  Speaking further of the company’s achievements, he said, “Since commissioning, the company has produced 2.90 lakh MT of polymers out of which 1.9 lakh MT has been produced in the current financial year. Consumption of BCPL’s products in the north-eastern region has increased substantially during the current financial year, as is evident from the fact that it started with 500 MT per month and touched 2500 MT per month within a short span of one year. To the extent possible, BCPL is making all the efforts with budding entrepreneurs for setting up manufacturing units locally for overall benefit of the north-eastern region.”
