Dollar Ind invests in zero-waste manufacturing
Dollar Industries has been using renewable source of energy for manufacturing and has invested into a five megawatt wind energy farm at Tirupur (Dindigul)
Dollar Industries, one of the leading hosiery brands of India, which enjoys a 15 per cent market share in the branded hosiery segment, has been using renewable source of energy for manufacturing and has invested into a five megawatt wind energy farm at Tirupur (Dindigul) and a 1,000 kilolitre zero liquid discharge effluent treatment plant.
â€œThis helps Dollar to utilise treated water for captive use and correspondingly reduce its reliance on municipal sources. Dollar recycles the residue that is automatically converted into cakes,â€ said Vinod Kumar Gupta, Managing Director of Dollar Industries.
â€œEco-friendly manufacturing is becoming the need of the hour. It protects the planet from exploitation and conserves natural resources,â€ he continued. â€œProducts are made from sustainable materials, while waste is reduced through remanufacturing, reuse and recycling. Besides being a friend of the earth, being eco-friendly can reduce businessâ€™ costs through reduced energy use. With advancement of technology and upgraded production techniques corporate houses are coming up with several green initiatives.â€
Tirupur has become Indiaâ€™s first textiles cluster to comply with zero liquid discharge guidelines. Zero-liquid discharge (ZLD) is a water treatment process in which all wastewater is purified and recycled, therefore, leaving zero discharge at the end of the treatment cycle.
