The award was conferred for Mithapur plant's commitment to Sustainability for revamping the entire technology of water usage - by conserving fresh water and by substituting fresh water with sea water and reusing the same water for different purposes thereby reducing the fresh water requirement significantly.
Mithapur chemical complex has successfully eliminated dependence on ground water as water conservation, reuse and recycling is the key to TCL's sustainability manufacturing over the years.
Zarir Langrana, COO - Chemicals (India), Chemicals Business, said, "Tata Chemicals has a clear and focused strand of business strategy of 'avoid, reduce and reuse' that governs its business operations, with a strong emphasis on resource optimization."
"Water is an indispensable resource at Mithapur and owing to the paucity of water due to the arid climate in this region Tata Chemicals has upgraded its technology so as to reduce dependency on external fresh water resources.
"The operations at Mithapur have been revamped to enable substitution of fresh water with sea water for operational purposes and further optimised for reduction and recycling. This has significantly reduced water stress in the region and decreased our water footprint."
"This award is recognition of our team's efforts at the Mithapur plant and reinforces our philosophy of 'serving society through science'," he said.
The award was received by M S S Rao, Paresh Tank, Najmul Hasan and C M Dwivedi.
