Jiffy Products Sri Lanka to take legal action against local newspaper
As part of the manufacturing process and RHP requirement, Jiffy Products SL, treat coco pith and husks with Calcium Nitrate and wash the media after absorption of the required elements. Jiffy Products SL has been granted the required approvals for the import of Calcium Nitrate for the purpose of treating coco pith and husk chips in the manufacturing process.
The drained and filtered effluent from the manufacturing process is diluted with ample fresh water until the mixture reaches the irrigable standards approved by the Sri Lanka Board of Investment, Central Environmental Authority and the Provincial Environmental Authority of the North Western Province.
Jiffy stores the diluted effluent in storage tanks and uses it to irrigate a 30 Acre mixed Coconut Plantation, which is a project in Kobeigane conducted by Jiffy Sri Lanka in association with the Coconut Research Institute of Sri Lanka.
The system for coir treatment is equipped to handle 300,000 cubic meters of water for washing the substrate and 200,000 cubic meters of effluent.
The Coconut Research Institute of Sri Lanka has recommended the use of effluents discharged in the manufacturing process as a nutrient for coconut plantation as far back as in 2007.
Jiffy Products SL confirms no effluent is discharged to the open environment or to the Deduru Oya in particular and that effluent produced in its operational processes were treated and used solely for irrigation purposes of the aforesaid hybrid coconut cultivation project.
