Abstract

As per Tamil Nadu state pollution control board (TNPCB) records, there are about 830 large units engaged in textile industrial processes in Tripur alone. These industries have established eight Common Effluent Treatment Plants(CETPs) and many Effluents Treatment Plants (ETP) ,which are subjected to treat 75,000 m3 of effluent per day generated by textile industries and the other hand the sludge retained due to solids separation process in the treatment plants create lot of environment problems due to lack of disposal methods . It provides the information about the ETP sludge which can be replaced with cement. The characterization of the ETP sludge as a binder was carried out as per the code provision (IS 1727- 1967). Form the present experimental work it is known that the textile ETP sludge can be replaced partially for the cement in concrete(20%,40%,60%) and it is evident that ETP sludge concrete performs well under compression as like that of conventional concrete.
