Abstract


Kamrangirchar is a raised land and industrial area situated on the bank of the Buriganga River in Dhaka city. The industries of this area are producing a huge amount of solid and liquid wastes all of which are disposed into the Buriganga river and other nearby places. This study attempts to explore the scenario of industrial waste management in Kamrangirchar (raised land) and its effect on the surrounding environment. The methodology of this study includes in-depth interviews and tries to explore the ways of managing waste properly. This study tries to explore more effective ways of managing industrial waste for a sound and safe environment. Environmental pollution has been a major global problem nowadays. Nature is being destroyed because of the excessive exploitation of the environment. Some elements of the environment and ecology like forests, natural sources of water, land, and air are gradually being polluted in Bangladesh, although these are essential for survival. Lack of awareness of the industrial units, poor implementation of the government policy of industrial waste management, inappropriate initiatives to dispose of the waste properly, and ineffective laws are responsible for the improper management of industrial waste in Kamrangirchar which is affecting the environment directly and indirectly.
