Land allotment picks up at Rubber Park in Piravanthur, Kerala
Kollam, May 24 (KNN) The allotment of land for industrial use at the newly set up Rubber Park in Piravanthur is progressing quickly.
Spread over an area of 19.9 acres the park has nearly 10.6 acres available for industrial use, reported The Hindu.
The park can allot 19 plots of various sizes from 25 cents to 116 cents.
It's the second Rubber Park in Kerala set up with an aim to exclusively promote natural rubber-based industries.
George V. James, managing director, Rubber Park India (P) Ltd said,“Electricity, water, road, and drainage facilities, have been provided so that entrepreneurs can straightaway start construction. We have already allotted land for two industries and we are getting a lot of enquiries.”
Though the project started more than a decade ago, the progress was hit due to technical issues as the location was declared environmentally sensitive area (ESA).
While only rubber-based and rubber wood industries classified as Orange, Green or White by the Pollution Control Board (PCB) are permitted, the park has no common effluent treatment plant since it falls into the ESA.
Latex-based units, dry rubber-based products, rubber mixing or reclamation units, and rubber wood-based units can use the facility to function.
