This presentation describes the efforts undertaken by Mico Bosch - Jaipur at water conservation. Water conservation measures taken by this manufacturer of fuel injection pumps for the automotive industry come under the broad heads of reduction in specific water consumption, community partnership & campaigns, and conservation, recycling & auditing.
This, in a larger framework that includes the use of non-conventional energy sources; technology upgradation and increases in usage efficiency; monitoring, auditing and awareness initiatives; resource use minimization and recycling; tree plantation; the minimization of green house gas emissions, vendor/supplier audits and awareness drives for employees and society at large. A zero waste water discharge unit since inception, the plant recycles waste water for both process and gardening needs.
Water cooled fan chambers have been replaced by air cooled ones, conventional taps by sensor based taps and leak audit tests are a regular aspect of plant operations. Environmental management, like operations management itself, uses methods such as Kaizen and POKA - YOKE and concepts such as suggestion schemes and team oriented production. Bosch's employee handbook for the environmental management system could be an important resource for sharing with others in the automotive parts industry or perhaps even with other industries. A programmable logic controlled sprinkler and drip irrigation system is another useful input.
