Rain water Harvesting
Effluent Treatment Plant (ETP)
The water from the washing machines and hydro-extractors goes through this extensive process of ETP (Effluent Treatment Plant) that helps to recover 92% of the water which is sent back to the washing machine for washing the next set. The remaining 8% of water is used in the restrooms in the flush tanks.
Re-use and Re-Cycle of waste
The sludge from the sludge tank is mechanically compressed at high pressure to extract the remaining water from the sludge thereby rendering highly compact cakes containing only the fabric fibres. These cakes are being sent to an agency that handles and manages the disposal of such wastes in proper manner as per environmental norms.
The cinder that is generated in the furnace by burning of briquettes is being used by farmers in the surrounding vicinity as manure for their crop
