Narmada Clean Tech (formerly known as Bharuch Eco Aqua Infrastructure Limited), is a company in the business of wastewater management and disposal.  It is based on PPP model, and is a subsidiary of Gujarat Industrial Development Corporation (GIDC) and also jointly promoted by Member Industries of Ankleshwar, Jhagadia and Panoli Industrial Estates.


Ever since the issues of Environment Protection became a priority agenda across the world, Indian Government & Gujarat Government have joined the international community in its commitment towards Environment Protection.  The priority accorded to control of Environment pollution is evident from the number of pollution control acts enacted along with rules and regulations.  Keeping the spirit and intent of these policies, implementation at ground level is the major challenge.


Prior to commencement of this project,treated effluent from three industrial estates were disposed off into a natural creek namely Amlakhadi leading to Narmada Estuary. Objection was raised by local population and NGOs against disposal of effluent and subsequently High Court has intervened and directed to stop the disposal of effluent into Amlakhadi.  A high level committee at State level decided to treat effluent up to marine standard and release into Gulf of Khambhat beyond Narmada Estuarine Zone. NCT was set up to honor the directives given by the High Court.


The initial project comprised of a Final Effluent Treatment Plant to receive and polish the treated effluent from the three estates and then convey this effluent into deep sea in the Gulf of Khambhat,where it is discharged through scientifically designed diffuser, where instantaneous dispersion and large dilutions exists.  This system is in operation since end of 2006.  The permitted capacity of this installation is 40 MLD.


Further during end of 2016, NCT commissioned a new separate conveyance system from the Jhagadia Estate to the landfall point with a booster pumping station, to enable development of the Jhagadia Estate.  The permitted capacity of this conveyance system is 35 MLD.


Regular surveys in the receiving ocean area are conducted to monitor the quality. These surveys have indicated that no adverse impact is found on the aquatic life and eco system.
