The 4 R’s

REDUCTION

Minimise packaging from suppliers and to customers and substitute less toxic materials wherever possible. For every 100 kg of dyed fibre entering the blending process, only 5 kg can be termed as unprocessable solid wastes at the end of the twisting operation. Around 72% of the water consumed for the dyeing processes is derived from river water.

RE-USE

Processes and systems are being revisited so as to identify where material can be reused. Printing on both sides on the paper is being encouraged; wooden pallets are repaired and used again.

RECYCLING

Wool wastes are recycled as far as possible, plastic and metals are recovered by outside contractors for re-conversion.

RECOVERY

Heat recovery systems from effluent.
