Birla Cellulose’s Vilayat site complies with EU BAT
Birla Celluloseâ€™s Grasim Vilayat site has commissioned the Carbon-disulphide Adsorption Plant (CAP) and achieved the sulphur-to- air emission norms in the EU BAT references for the viscose manufacturing process.
Celluloseâ€™s Grasim Vilayat site has commissioned the Carbon-disulphide Adsorption
Plant (CAP) and achieved the sulphur-to- air emission norms in the EU BAT
references for the viscose manufacturing process. This initiative is in
line with Birla Celluloseâ€™s aim to apply the best available technologies (EU
BAT) at all of its fibre locations and investments of $170 million are in
progress in order to achieve this by the end of 2022.
H K Agrawal, Chief
Operating Officer, Birla Cellulose, said that, adapting the best available
technologies is an important milestone towards achieving global leadership in
sustainable practices in the MMCF (Man Made Cellulosic Fibers) industry. He
added that it was the reason that the products come with sustainability
credentials that are global benchmarks.
Grasim Vilayat has
installed state-of-the-art closed-loop technologies to recover and recycle CS2,
which is the key raw material for viscose manufacturing process. With these
technologies, the site is able to significantly reduce its emissions and
achieve 90-95% recovery in terms of sulphur and recycle it back to the process.
The site also meets all other EU BAT parameters. This was confirmed by an audit
conducted by Sustainable Textile Solutions, UK (STS) recently. The site also
meets the ZDHC MMCF responsible viscose production standards.
Vilayat is one of Birla
Celluloseâ€™s flagship sites and post the ongoing expansion, it will be the
worldâ€™s largest MMCF manufacturing site. The project is also designed to
achieve low energy consumption.
