FICCI - WWF conducted pilot intervention in pulp & paper sector to implement water and wastewater management best practises - "Living Ganga Programme" in Ganga Basin. Sangal Papers Ltd. opted to be a part of the project wherein with the assitance of FICCI the study was conducted in our factory premises. The objective of the project was to identify best management practises for water and wastewater management to
- reduce the overall water consumption,
- reduce efluent generation, and
- improve effluent treatment by the units
FICCI - WWF Pilot project proved beneficial for Sangal Papers Ltd. We were able to reduce the water consumption by 50% in our total processes. Further we can reduce the fresh water consumption if treated effluent water can be reused after some tertiary treatment for which certain investment has to be made. This might result in an approximate water saving of 1000 KL/day!!!
