Effluent Treatment Plant (ETP)
Minimising environmental pollution is high on the implementation agenda of our industrial operations. We operate effluent treatment plants to reduce the potential for pollution of receiving waters and to comply with discharge consent conditions.
We significantly reduce our environmental footprints by enabling the rainwater harvesting systems to collect, conserve and re-use the water that falls onto the roofs or hard stand areas of the facility premises. The systems further help us to top up source water in water recycling systems.
We reduce the emission of waste by boosting yield in our production process and increasing the recycling rate of our waste materials. At HL Agro, we enforce advanced waste management & water treatment facilities to minimize our overall environmental impact. Rejected materials are sold in the market in the form of hay or fodder & other non- recyclable industrial wastages are handed over to the regulatory bodies for their better management.
At HL Agro, our approach towards the environment is to make it fully integrated part of our business. We promote our green credentials by engaging eco-friendly manufacturing practices & conserving a substantial green buffer zone area in the premises of both the units. These green belts keep us closer to the nature & leverages our environmental performance.
