23 Inspection Officer’s Remarks: M/s SPY Agro Industries Ltd, Industrial Estate,
Udumulapuram(V), Nandyal has been issued CFE to produce total spirit / ENA of 134 KLD
/ 125 KLD and power of 4MW. The industry was inspected on 22-02-2008. in response to
the news item published in Eenadu daily and a Show Cause Notice was issued for starting
the operation of the plant without CFO of the Board, without commissioning of ETP, and
without providing control equipment to the boiler and discharging the waste water in to river
thereby creating surface water pollution. A detailed inspection report was also submitted
to the Member Secretary, Board Office, Hyderabad on 5-03-2008 for taking necessary legal
action against the industry. The industry was again inspected on 15-04-2008 and
observed that the unit was not under operation. The Chief Executive Officer of the unit
informed that the under is under shutdown since 11-04-2008 due lack of Bio-mass fuel.
During the inspection, it was observed that the industry has constructed two unlined
lagoons of size about 100 x 80 x 3.5mts and 100 x 100 x 3.5mts. and stored untreated
effluents in the lagoons and generating pungent odour.
The industry has completed the erection and commissioning of Bio-digestor but the
secondary effluent treatment plant civil works were still under progress as on the date of
inspection. The industry has erected individual multi-cyclone dust collectors for 16 TPH
boilers (2Nos.) The ESP is under erection stage. A legal hearing was held on 25-04-2008
before Board’s task Force Committee and a direction was issued to the industry on 29-04-
2008 “not to operate the unit till CFO of the Board is obtained”.

II Complaint / Legal action taken against the industry :

A news item was published in Eenadu daily on 22-02-2008 against the
industry for discharging untreated effluents into River Kundu. A detailed inspection
report was submitted to the Member Secretary on 25-02-2008 for initiation of legal
action. A legal hearing was held before the Boards Task Force Committee meeting
held on 25-04-2008 and a direction was issued to the industry on 29-04-2008 “not
to operate the unit till CFO of the Board is obtained.”.
III. Mitigation Measures (Where significant adverse effects are identified, description of
the measures to be taken to avoid, reduce or remedy those effects). :

The industry is operating without completion of the construction of ETP, bio digestor
and without connecting the ESP to the boiler and discharged the waste water
indiscriminately in and around the industry and discharged the effluents outside the factory
into the APIIC drains which joins to the stream which is existing under National Highway-18
and Railway bridge, which ultimately joins to Kundu River. The storage of effluents in the
stream at N.H-18 and under the railway bridge which is generating pungent smell and
creating nuisance to the road by-passers.

The unit was again inspected on 15-04-2008 and observed that the unit was not
under operation. The industry has constructed two unlined lagoons of size about 100 x 80
x 3.5mts and 100 x 100 x 3.5mts. and stored untreated effluents in the lagoons. The
discharged effluent is generating pungent odour in the area. The industry has completed the
erection and commissioning of Bio-digestor but the secondary effluent treatment plant civil
works were still under progress as on the date of inspection.

While processing the CFE application the industry was proposed primary treatment
and R.O process and the R.O rejects proposed for bio composting process. Now, the
industry has submitted the primary and secondary treatment facilities for treatment of the
effluents. The treated effluents propose to utilize for ferti-irrigation. The industry has
constructed lagoons without lining and stored huge quantity of spent wash.

As the industry is located at close proximity in the catchment area of the river
Kundu there is possibility of effluent joining the river. Hence, the may be directed
to take measures to avoid discharge of effluents / storm water from the premises of
the plant into the river Kundu. The industry may also be directed that the ferti-
irrigation proposed should be towards the opposite direction of the river and there
should not be any overflow of the water used for ferti-irrigation.

During inspection it was observed that the industry had installed 16TPH
boilers of 2Nos. whereas the industry has taken CFE for only 25TPH boiler. Industry
has proposed to provide ESP as a pollution control equipment to the boiler whereas,
CFE was issued subject to the condition to provide bag filter to the boiler. Whereas
the industry has provided individual multi-cyclone dust collectors for 16 TPH boilers
(2Nos.) The ESP is under erection stage.

During inspection it was observed that lot of odour was observed in around
the industry. There was also press clippings in the daily news papers on the smell
nuisance caused by the industry in and around Nandyal town. The industry may be
directed to take measures to control the smell nuisance caused by the industry.

25 Recommendation (Specific comment whether to issue consent or not).

The issue of CFO to the unit may be considered duly stipulating conditions
considering the above mitigation measures suggested along with the other
necessary conditions, after construction and commissioning of the ETP & ESP /
bag filter provided to the boiler and on submission of concrete measures taken by
the industry to reduce the smell nuisance creating by the industry,

This is submitted for favour of kind information and taking necessary action.
