Description :

A large number of small and medium scale industries are engaged in the manufacture of a variety of chemical and allied products in Gujarat (India). Considering resource constraints, increasing public awareness, and judicial interventions, common facilities are created for industrial waste management. Simultaneously, the Government of Gujarat initiated development of a plan for the promotion of cleaner production in the state, and developing human resources for the assessment of the potential of cleaner production in industries. Several proactive measures are also taken up on the overall environmental management by involving industries associations of the industrial estates/ agglomerates. Local Cleaner Production Centres are encouraged at the industrial estate levels. Some impediments as well as issues are identified, which need to be addressed to help cleaner production related activities pick up in a big way and sustain. It is expected that the observations made in this study are equally applicable to other developing countries.
