An initiative has been undertaken by Huntsman with the aim of saving around 76,000 l of reverse osmosis water/day. To improve water efficiency and reduce net water usage at its Baroda facility, located in the western region of India, Huntsman Textile Effects has successfully implemented the water conservation process by modifying the phase sequence in the pH measurement program.
Water is used extensively throughout textile processing operations of Huntsman Textile Effects, Singapore. The amount of water used varies widely in the industry, depending on specific processes operated at the plant, equipment used, and policies concerning water use. This conservation project at the Baroda Plant will have a potential savings of US$146,000 a year for the company.
