ITC Limited, Munger, Bihar makes water conservation efforts as a corporate initiative (2007)

Measures put into practice at ITC's Munger plant include recycling of back wash water, reduction in domestic water consumption, incorporation of RO plant and an approach to zero waste water discharge

This presentation describes the efforts undertaken by ITCs Munger plant at water conservation. Some of the measures put into practice at ITC's Munger plant include recycling of back wash water through a tube settler plant; reduction in domestic water consumption through dual flushes, e-flushes and e-taps; the incorporation of an RO plant for treating effluent; and an approach to zero waste water discharge by using treated water for such purposes as toilets and gardening.

Munger's location along the banks of the Ganga, coupled with severe deficiencies in infrastructure also suggested to the company that there was good reason to consider the scope for joining hands with the municipal authorities to bring Ganga water efficiently to the town, thereby improving its water supply as well as improving the quality of water input to its own plant, which has been facing difficulties in using ground water because of its hardness.

This win-win idea is being pursued through intensive studies of the town's water arrangements and requirements that contribute significantly to the company's CSR profile.
