BRFL Textiles Private Limited (BTPL), which operates India's largest single-roof state-of-the-art fabric processing plant, has set a new standard for sustainability by launching a new sulphur dyeing process that does not need water. BTPL is the first company in the textile industry to introduce this new dyeing technique, making them the pioneers of this innovative cutting-edge technology.
From its founding as a sustainable manufacturing company, BTPL has worked to reduce carbon emissions and recycle water in a variety of ways. The reverse osmosis machine at BTPL's Tarapur plant is currently efficient enough to recover 50% of the effluent water, allowing the plant to recycle up to 4 million liters of water per day.
The corporation wants to improve this quality even further, with a goal of increasing recycling to 90% in the next three months, allowing the plant to recover up to 7.2 million liters of water every day.
Furthermore, the majority of the reactive dyeing in the plant is done using the e-control technique, which eliminates the use of salt and, as a result, reduces the amount of TDS in the water.
At its Tarapur factory, BTPL also uses its electricity co-generation design, which allows it to reuse 48 tonnes of steam per hour and save 250 tonnes of coal per day, resulting in a significant reduction in carbon emissions that exceeds even global textile company sustainability standards.
BTPL incorporates environmental initiatives into many of its offerings. The bulk of BTPL's fabrics, such as linen and cotton, are sold in their natural state, contributing to the sustainability chain. Similarly, a significant portion of the linen and linen blended range is created by keeping the natural fiber color of the cloth without applying any dye or color. Furthermore, the polyester blended fabric manufactured by the facility is made from recycled polyester.
Managing Director at BTPL, Prashant Agrawal, said they are committed to taking a sustainable approach in their organization, and they will continue to ramp up their sustainability efforts as their production and market position grow. Today, greenhouse gas emissions and a lack of potable water pose a significant global sustainability threat. They are proud to combat all of these issues with their cutting-edge processes, which are setting new sustainability standards in the global textile industry and enabling a more prosperous future for their large global customer base.
BTPL was recently created as a separate company in August 2020 as part of Bombay Rayon Fashions Limited's restructuring operation, in which it hived off its Yarn Dyeing & Fabric Processing units in Tarapur into BTPL through a slump sale on a going concern basis and attracted private equity funding for expansion.
