JK Paper Ltd, Orissa conducts water conservation activities as a corporate initiative (2007)

JK Industries, a major paper manufacturer, reuses water used in manufacturing processes, thus reducing the plant's need for fresh water and also reducing discharge from the plant

This presentation informs of the efforts made by JK Industries, a major paper manufacturer, for reuse of the water used in manufacturing processes, thus reducing the plant's need for supplies of fresh water and also reducing discharge from the plant.

The water is reused for the plant processes themselves, which has been made possible by treatment of outflows and design modifications that allow them to be piped back into operations. The guiding philosophy has been the adoption of Kaizen workplace strategies for continuous business process improvement and waste prevention with scientific monitoring, and benchmarking and standardization inputs as an integral activity.

Treated effluent is also used to irrigate agricultural land in surrounding areas. Plantation drives have been undertaken and rainwater harvesting measures have also been put in place. Waste products such as wood dust, sludge, fly ash and charcoal fines are now used for such things as the manufacture of bricks and board and as fuel.
