Clariant’s new waste water plant treats 18 million litres in first year
The plant in Bonthapally has also treated more than 18 million litres of wastewater in the past 365 days and made it reusable.
This has resulted in a reduction of water consumption in various steps of its production and is in line with the company’s strategic focus on adding value with sustainability and careful use of resources.
The plant has a host of highly efficient processes to enable purification and removal of contamination at various stages.
Effluent is introduced to the WWTP, where they are subjected to biological treatment, ultra-filtration, reverse osmosis, multiple evaporation techniques and agitated thin film drying.
“Clariant’s philosophy prepares for a better tomorrow for all its stakeholders and the communities it operates in. This investment in the WWTP marks another milestone in Clariant’s commitment towards sustainable business in India, one of its strategic growth markets. We are pursuing a dedicated strategy aimed at increasing and sharpening the focus on BU industrial and consumer specialities in India,” said Adnan Ahmad, regional head of Clariant in India, 12 months ago.
