Three pronged st rategy for achieving excellence in water management v Water Efficient Design v Efficient Operations to conserve water v Continuous identification of new opportunities and integrate them with the processes / operations through suitable modifications
  4. 4. Water Efficient Design Efficient Design : Selected Unique concepts at the design stage. v Though the river Ganges is near by w e selected bore-w ell w ater as fresh w ater supply source. v Earlier borewell w ater w as com ing to the plant after getting accum ulated in a p ond. Now it is com ing t o the plant directly through pipeline. v Effluent treatment at the source to conserve w ater and am m onia v Boiler blow dow n is used as m ake up to coolin g tow er. v All innocu ous treated effluents are used for green belt developm ent and m aintenan ce w ithin the prem ises. TCL, Babrala is a ‘Z ERO’ effluent discharge unit. Water Efficient Operation Efficient Operation : Our strategy is continuous monitoring and optimization of operation v Continuous vigilance and monitoring at the source (i.e at the tube well discharge) v Maximum possible recycling of process/steam condensate v Cooling water treatment optimization to operate with high cycle of concentration. v Boiler water treatment optimization to minimize blow down quantity. v Controlled use and monitoring at all consumption points
  5. 5. Find new opportunities and integrate Efficient Modification : Our strategy is to involve maximum people and continuously search for new opportunities and optimization of operation v All em ployees and tow nship residents are m ade aw are of w ater conservation v People find new opportunities and suggest v Suggestions are evaluated by con cerned department follow ed by process engineering dept for benefits and suitability v Schem e m ade and detail design done v Schem e im plem ented and evalu ated for actu al benefits v Suggestor is rew arded Driving Excellence through People Involvement, Driving Excellence Teamwork and efficient methodologies Six-Sigma Benchmarking Process Improvement RC A F MEA RCM KM Techniques 5S SPC Suggestion Scheme Manthan C O Q Process Balanced Scorecard BSC model - SHE Framework Integrated Management Systems (ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001, ISO 27001 and RC14001) Tata Business Excellence Model
  6. 6. MONITORING……Measure , Analyze & Improve Measuring Flow m eters are provided at the discharge of tube w ells to m easure at source Major consum ption points have separate flow m eters Sum of production and sum of consum ptions are balanced on daily basis. Variation ( <2.0 %) ensures accuracy of m easurem ent. Daily Reporting Daily w ater consum ption inform ation is sent to Senior Managem ent Daily Environm ent perform ance is reviewed by senior m anagem ent Every year reduction of specific w ater consum ption target is taken and the sam e is m entioned in MD’s Green Goal sheet Environm ent incident Reporting System Monitoring consumption of domestic water To monitor and reduce per capita consumption v Flow m eters installed in the dom estic supply lines to tow nship v Treated effluent is being used in place of fresh w ater for tow nship green-field m aintenance v Aw areness sessions on natural resource conservation and Quiz contest are conducted regularly for tow nship (ISO-14001 certified) residents, school students and nearby com m unity v Tow nship sew age w ater is treated and used for horticulture purpose v Regular Preventive Maintenance of w ater taps/netw ork at public places by using checklists
