Bangladesh has got a mobile testing laboratory for waste water and sludge generated by effluent treatment plants of readymade garment factories. The laboratory is equipped with sampling and measuring instruments and accessories and offers on-the-spot testing and sampling services for washing, dyeing and finishing plants in the readymade garment sector.
With the help of this testing van, waste water can be controlled, thus providing a scientific basis to further improve water quality. There are small garment factories in Bangladesh which might have effluent treatment plants in operation, but may not have the instruments to constantly control the treated water. This mobile testing service can specifically serve smaller and medium-sized factories so that they can ensure their waste water does not pollute the environment.
Thus the mobile laboratory is one step toward a more sustainable garment industry in Bangladesh, from which businesses, environment and people can benefit. The lab has a technician and a waste water expert team and will enable clients to take advantage of quality services at an affordable price. The testing facility provides on-site sampling, testing, calibration of factory meters, and monitoring of environmental parameters.
This international standard service is available to all textile factories in Bangladesh.
