The Department of Industrial Works has ordered the closure of the AA Ethanol Ltd plant in Prachin Buri’s Si Maha Phot district for dumping untreated wastewater onto 12,000 rai of land in Kabinburi district. 

Prachin Buri governor Chitra Promchutima said she had received the department’s letter, dated Jan 29, ordering the shutdown of the ethanol factory on the grounds of its failure to repair its wastewater treatment system as required.

The letter said the department’s officials had inspected the plant on Jan 26 and found that its treatment system was not in good working order, as required by the Industry Ministry’s notice of 1996.
