We have an action plan that helps us reduce energy consumption, its sources, negates waste generation even further in the processes, and minimizes current eco-footprints while simultaneously balancing feasibility to do so.
Our company aims at using only clean chemistry in our entire process by responsible sourcing using Blue sign approved products. This input stream management will restrict the entry of the harmful substances right at the beginning of the manufacturing process to achieve standards for an environmentally friendly and safe production. This will ensure that our products meet very stringent consumer safety requirements worldwide and also provides confidence to the consumer to acquire a sustainable product.
We have saved 627 million litres of fresh water over the last 3 years.
Our new sulphur dyeing method cuts down a significant amount of water and energy used. Our innovative process REDUCES the water consumption to 3.5 litres/kg from12 litres/ kg is used for washing and oxidation process.
The dyed products made from this process are made using eco-friendly sulphur dyes.
We have installed a state-of-the-art caustic recovery plant, in which, caustic - a valuable chemical, is recovered from the effluent drain of the mercerizing process. In this process 90 % of the caustic is recovered and is reused back in the process . The recovered water separated from caustic is reused in the process resulting in chemical and water savings for the environment.
We achieve high recovery of caustic by using ozonation of the effluent caustic, reverse osmosis technology and multi-effect evaporators. The ozonation process eliminates the contamination by oxidizing to sludge and filteration with coarse membranes & micron filters. The use of chemicals to clean up the caustic is eliminated. Conventionally, the contamination keeps getting accumulated and after a few cycles has to be discarded to effluent.
The fresh water consumption for the whole unit includes drinking water for drinking and cleaning purposes as well as water for the denim production processes.
Our custom-designed counter flow system reuses the water used in the production process, resulting in a considerable amount of process water savings over the year.
We have saved 32 million kWh of electricity over the last 3 years.
A number of steps are being taken to REDUCE energy usage and eco-footprints, starting with optimisation of in-plant electrical power quality, installation of energy efficient lighting system, and machinery energy consumption is optimised by use of variable frequency drive systems and heat recovery systems in air compressors.
State-of-the-art equipment installed includes steam condensate recovery system, flash steam recovery system and waste heat recovery system on boiler and thermopacs that ensures that the energy produced is REUSED after recovery. Our heat recovery system installed on air compressors recovers waste heat from the compressor cooling.
Hot compressed air is cooled in heat exchangers by water. Hot water is generated (55o- 60o C) as an output of heat exchanger. In the conventional method of rejecting heat at the cooling tower causes loss of water in evaporation and consumption of power in cooling tower operations.
OUR PRODUCTION UNIT HAS BEEN CONSISTENTLY ABLE TO REDUCE ENERGY CONSUMPTIONS TO A DIMINUTIVE AMOUNT OF 1.05 KWH /MT OF ELECTRICITY AND 0.68 KG/MT OF COAL.
We care very much about the environment and aim to protect it
by doing everything to minimize the waste produced.
Our process includes the introduction of advanced treatment systems to REDUCE effluent generated and an eco-processing route that reduces the other waste obtained.
OUR PROCESS INCLUDES THE INTRODUCTION OF ADVANCED TREATMENT SYSTEMS TO REDUCE EFFLUENT GENERATED AND AN ECO-PROCESSING ROUTE THAT REDUCES THE OTHER WASTE OBTAINED.
Our factory also maintains RESPONSIBLE LIQUID DISCHARGE by resorting to in-plant pre-treatment of effluent and ensuing further treatment involving sending effluents to CETP for wastewater management.
The installation of a waste heat recovery system on the Stenter machine and the caustic recovery plant helps recover and reusewhatever energy and by-material that is generated.
Our textile products have received the certification from the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), recognized as the world's leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibres. it defines high-level environmental criteria along the entire organic textiles supply chain and requires compliance with social criteria as well.
Our textile products have received the certification from the Orranic Content Standard (OCS) tracks THE flow of a row material from the source to the final product and this process is certified by an accredited third party. it allows for transparent, consistent and comprehensive independent evaluation and verification of organic material content claims on products.
The STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX is a worldwide consistent certification system for raw, semi-finished, and finished textile products at all levels, as well as additional materials used.
Our textile products have received the certification from The Global Recycle Standard (GRS), an international, valuntary, full product standard that sets requirements for the third party certification of recycled content, clain of custody, social and environmental practices and chemical restrictions.
The standard that holds all textile supply chain participants to meet contemporary ecological requirements that focus on reducing environmental impact, a holistic approach to Input Stream Management and sustainable processes.
Fairtrade independently check that their standards have been met by the farmers, workers and companies that are part of products’ supply chains. And in order to reassure consumers that this has happened, Our textile products have received the license to use of the FAIRTRADE Mark on products and packaging to signal this.
