Government close to shutting down Savar tanning complex

The Environment, Forest and Climate Change Ministry in Bangladesh has moved to implement a recommendation on shutting down the tannery complex in Savar. A parliamentary committee from the ministry on August 23 recommended shutting down the Savar Tannery Industrial Estate (STIE) at Hemayetpur because it does not have adequate facilities to treat the amount of solid and liquid waste generated by the tanners.
