DuPont targets Bangladesh’s booming industries with advanced wastewater solutions

BMirror Report:

Global water treatment  leader DuPont announced its intention to enter the country’s wastewater treatment market. The announcement came during a day-long seminar held on Thursday in Dhaka, where DuPont representatives met with key stakeholders.

The seminar, inaugurated by Sheikh Yusuf Harun, Executive Chairman of the Bangladesh Economic Zones Authority (Beza), served as a platform for collaboration.  Chris Fernandes, Director of DuPont India, led the company’s delegation, while Enamul Habib, Managing Director of Water Technology Bangladesh, DuPont’s local partner, represented the Bangladeshi side.  Nearly 200 representatives from Bangladesh’s top industrial groups participated, highlighting the significant interest in DuPont’s advanced solutions.

The seminar focused on the critical issue of water scarcity, particularly in the context of rapid industrial growth. Beza Chairman Harun pinpointed Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Shilpanagar, Bangladesh’s largest economic zone, as a prime example. He emphasized the potential of seawater desalination as a sustainable solution and urged companies like DuPont to propose innovative technologies to address this growing challenge.

Beza outlined a comprehensive strategy to meet the projected water demand of 100 million liters per day in Bangabandhu Shilpanagar by 2040. The plan incorporates a multi-pronged approach: Presently, the zone extracts 5 million liters of water daily through deep tube wells.

Two additional treatment plants are under construction, expected to provide an additional 10 million liters of water. Collaboration with Chittagong WASA (Water Supply and Sewerage Authority) is underway to draw 50 million liters per day from the Meghna and Dakatiya rivers.

Harun acknowledged the water challenges faced by other economic zones across the country, including Sabrang Tourism Park, Maheshkhali, the Chinese and Indian Economic Zones. He expressed his confidence that modern water treatment technologies like those offered by DuPont could play a pivotal role in overcoming these hurdles.

Chris Fernandes, Director of DuPont India, showcased the company’s commitment to providing cutting-edge solutions for a water-secure future. He highlighted DuPont’s expertise in advanced water treatment technologies like reverse osmosis and ultrafiltration, which offer significant advantages over traditional methods.

Enamul Habib, Managing Director of Water Technology Bangladesh, emphasized the importance of collaboration between international companies like DuPont and local partners to achieve sustainable water management practices. He believes that a cooperative approach can ensure safe water not only for industrial purposes but also for domestic use, contributing to the overall well-being of Bangladeshi citizens.

DuPont’s entry into the Bangladeshi market signifies a significant development for the country’s industrial landscape. The company’s advanced wastewater treatment solutions offer a timely response to the growing water demands of Bangladesh’s burgeoning industries. By working alongside local partners and authorities, DuPont can play a crucial role in ensuring a sustainable water future for Bangladesh.
