At Asian Paints, we have undertaken certain measures towards wastewater management.
i. Effluent Treatment Plant (ETP) water reuse
- ETP-treated water is put directly into raw water tank and the composite is used as raw water for all operations, except for drinking purposes
- Through this process, the energy-intensive operation of Reverse Osmosis (RO) and Multiple Effect Evaporator (MEE) is reduced significantly
ii. Effluent reduction
At Kasna factory, we have taken several initiatives to reduce effluent generation at source
- Reuse of softener regeneration effluent for cleaning empty barrels resulting in reduction of effluent
- Reuse of boiler blowdown as makeup water in cooling tower
