Conservation of energy, technology absorption and foreign exchange earnings and outgo:
The details of conservation of energy, technology absorption, foreign exchange earnings and outgo are as follows:
(A) Conservation of energy:
The conservation of energy is of paramount importance and not only necessary for conserving national resources but also inevitable across all industry, as it has far reaching impact on the bottom line of the company. We have taken several steps in this regard related to our manufacturing activity but the key steps are-
1. We have taken initiatives for replacement of existing lights with "LED Lights" to save power consumption and during the current year we have completed this process in all the key areas where power consumption is high. In the ensuing year, we will complete the process of replacement of Existing Light with "LED Light" in all the area where it requires.
2. One of our key raw materials is PTA, which is available both in bags and tanker. Now we are bringing material in tankers as it directly fed in the process rather than bringing in Bag. As material brought in bags, require additional consumption of electrical energy on account of charging of electrical hoist for lifting and pulling down the bags.
3. The cooling Tower Fan and Air Cooler Fan are one of the major components which consume energy. We have optimised use of number of fans depending upon the temperature difference during the day and night.
4. We have optimised the plant process parameter, process activity and reduced the load on the cooling tower and chiller.
5. We have started using of turbo vent in place of electrical operated exhaust fan to contain electrical energy consumption.
(B) Technology absorption:
1. We have installed modern Power Capacitor Bank for increasing power factor which will directly reduce electric consumption.
2. We have implemented a Direct Polymer Melt line for direct consumption of melt instead of Polyester Chips for producing POY. This has actually reduced our process flow and not only improved quality but also reduced power consumption ratio per ton of production
(C) Foreign exchange earnings and Outgo:
The particulars regarding foreign exchange earnings and outgo are given in Note No. 37 and 39 Notes forming part of the Accounts.
