Huntsman Textile Effects, a global leader in creative and environmentally friendly dyes, chemicals, and digital inks, has successfully implemented a water conservation process at its Vadodara facility in western India to enhance water efficiency and reduce net water usage. The plant's initiative intends to conserve approximately 76-kilo liters of Reverse Osmosis water per day by altering the phase sequence in the pH measuring procedure.
Water is used extensively in the textile processing industry. The amount of water used in the sector varies greatly based on the precise activities carried out at the plant, the equipment employed, and water-use laws. This conservation effort at the Vadodara facility has the potential to save the organization $146,000 each year.
Mark Devaney, vice president manufacturing and operations excellence, Huntsman Textile Effects, said that at Huntsman, they recognize the critical role they play in fostering a more sustainable future and are committed to the well-being of the communities in which they operate as well as environmental conservation. They’re constantly searching for methods to improve the environmental footprint of their manufacturing locations and have implemented various projects in recent years to reduce their water usage.
Kavishwar Kalambe, site director, Huntsman Textile Effects, said that the team conducted a thorough examination of the pH analysis process in dye vessels, mapping existing water usage and prospective conservation methods. After a brief analysis and numerous brainstorming sessions, they were able to change the phase sequence, resulting in Reverse Osmosis water conservation of over 76-kilo liters per day. This research adds directly to Huntsman's Horizon 2025 aims of reducing net water usage at operations in water-stressed regions.
