One of the keys aim of tracking our carbon emissions is to identify opportunities and to reduce emissions by deploying reduction strategies in line with our unequivocal commitment to sustainability.
Energy efficiency forms an integral part of YTML’s sustainability strategy. As the energy crisis looms over us, we try our best to conserve energy, in turn reducing our carbon footprint. Conserving energy does not only reduce greenhouse gas emissions, but also significantly reduces cost, making our business more competitive. YTML has the generation capacity of 23.4 MWH of power & 76 tons per hour of steam. Our main sources of energy generation are natural gas & waste heat from engines. Natural gas consumption for generating steam and power are highlighted in the figure.
Our energy and emission management strategy include the following initiatives:
Replacement of Old Power Generators with Energy Efficient Generators
Replacement of Conventional Tubes with Energy Efficient L.E.D Tube Lights
Replacement of Screw Compressor with Centrifugal Compressor
Installation of VSD on Air Compressor
Effluent Neutralization by means of Chimney smoke
Waste heat recovery from Effluent
Pollution-free screen stripping
Caustic Recovery plant
Boiler and steam management
Hot Water Boiler and Absorption Chiller
Sustainability in the longer term encompasses the area of resource preservation and management. In this regard, we are in compliance with all legislative and ethical obligations in wastage handling, storage and elimination of waste.
