A total of 205 factories have been placed on the watchlist of the Industry Ministry for allegedly having tendency to discharging industrial waste into public areas, said permanent secretary Pasu Loharjun yesterday (September 23).

Inspections of these facilities have been planned between September and November, of which 12 are located in Bangkok and 193 elsewhere , he added.

24 of the 205 are waste treatment plants with the remainder (181) being waste-generating manufacturers.

Pasu said those found discharging waste into public areas would have to foot the bill for the treatment of toxic substances coming from their locations.
