Hathazari Peaking Power Plant fined Tk 20 lakh


The Department of Environment (DoE) in Chattogram on Wednesday fined state-owned 100MW Hathazari Peaking Power Plant Tk 20 lakh on charge of polluting environment and making harm to surroundings.

It has also been directed to operate power plant after placing Effluent Treatment Plant (ETP). Otherwise, legal action will be taken against the plant.





Ctg DoE assistant director Muktadir Hasan said after visiting the power plant they found evidence of environment pollution by running the plant without setting up Liquid Effluent Treatment Plant (ETP) and dumping waste into the river.
