We conduct our business efficiently, complying with environmental laws, regulations and industry standards, doing our best to reduce our carbon footprint. We have implemented various eco-friendly initiatives across our operations and continue to encourage our workforce to adopt efficient and responsible practices
Water recycled (treated water used in cooling towers)
Reduction in water consumption over previous year
We are committed to prevent negligent disposable of bio-medical waste and remain mindful about our waste disposal habits. As a result, our operations are governed by multiple regulations including the Bio-Medical Waste Management Rules, 2016 (BMW Rules), Hazardous and Other Wastes (Management and Transboundary Movement) Rules, 2016 (Hazardous Waste Rules) and The Manufacturing, Storage and Import of Hazardous Chemicals Rules, 1989 (MSIHC Rules).
Hazardous waste generated from our facilities are safely disposed by authorised agencies approved by Telangana State Pollution Control Board (TSPCB). We have entered into a technical collaboration with Treatment, Storage, and Disposal Facilities (TSDF) GGPEIL and the Ramky Group to ensure responsible disposal of e-waste and other waste generated through our manufacturing processes. Expired chemicals, STP sludge, spent solvents, and solid batches of drug that do not qualify our stringent quality check are sent to the authorised TSDF for incineration.
Other batches that fail our rigorous tests are crushed by our glass crushing machines and the liquid effluent generated from crushing is sent to the Common Effluent Treatment Plant (CETP) after pre-treatment. We also recycle the crushed glass and packing waste generated from our operations. The buy-back clause with our supplier, for used lead-acid batteries, also enable us to dispose hazardous waste efficiently.
We are committed to reduce water consumption, and have multiple checks and balances to optimise the same. We make conscious effort to minimise losses during the manufacturing process, and have stepped up efforts to reduce consumption of water through optimal utilisation of water through recirculation. We periodically screen and upgrade our effluent and sewage treatment plants, at our manufacturing facilities, to treat and recycle waste water.
Process improvements were undertaken at the raw water underground storage tank which helped us optimising the water usage to ~50 KL per day
Improvements in our water quality sampling process helped us further in water reduction.
We have taken strong measures to reduce air pollution from our manufacturing units. Instead of furnace oil, we have used boiler fuel with piped natural gas (PNG) to reduce our stack and CO2 emissions.
The shift to PNG has been initiated at our Dundigal plant and the same will be implemented at Pashamylaram manufacturing facility too.
