Cleaner Production (CP)
- Productivity increased by reducing water consumption,
- Effective energy consumption, carbon emission, and waste PaCT target
PaCT is being implemented in about one hundred wet processing textile factories of Bangladesh. The PaCT lead sponsors are the C&A Foundation, H&M and INnditex. Associate sponsors are G-Star, KappAhl, Lindex, Primark, and Tesco. PaCT is implemented by IFC and Solidaridad, in cooperation with the apex trade body, BGMEA. Technical specialists TNO and Water Footprint Network and PaCT implementing partners. Before the changes were introduced, MKCL used 170 liters of water to produce a kilogram of cloth: now it uses 120 liters. These measures are typically low-cost, easy to implement, factory specific, quick return and highly profitable.
The capacity of the new ETP or the inlet flow rate is 3600 m3/day and sludge production (100% dry content) capacity is ~325 kg/day. All the plant equipment were brought from Joseph Egli Italia Srl, an engineering company in the environmental field, guaranteeing economic feasibility both in terms of dimensions and in management of the system with modern technology and reliability. The company has spent over BDT 16 core behind this project.
