Long-term water availability is a challenge we foresee. We aim to become self-sufficient in our water consumption and its associated risks by mapping various factors and considerations. This approach helps us in prioritising our objective of water positivity in the future. Our major focus is on recycling water back into operations to reduce dependency on fresh water supply. Towards this objective, we are strategising to achieve zero-liquid discharge (ZLD) for our facilities.
At AIL, water obtained from municipal sources is normally used for heating, cooling and scrubbing operations. Water used in the heating operation is recycled back taking precaution of not losing its temperature thereby reducing energy consumption in heating. Our operations do not cause any direct impact on any water body as we do not harvest water directly from any source.
