Clariant, an innovative specialty chemical company, has inaugurated a new state-of-the-art Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP) at the Industrial & Consumer Specialties (ICS) site in Bonthapally, India.

The new waste water treatment plant at the zero liquid discharge site has the capacity to treat 300 kiloliters of waste water per day.

The WWTP has a host of highly efficient processes to enable purification and removal of contamination at various stages. Effluents are introduced to the WWTP, where they are subjected to biological treatment, ultra-filtration, reverse osmosis, multiple evaporation techniques, and agitated thin film drying. With the inauguration of the new Waste Water Treatment Plant at Bonthapally, Clariant can continue to drive its growth strategy for its Industrial and Consumer Specialties business, while ensuring it continues to focus on sustainability and environment protection.

“Clariant’s philosophy prepares for a better tomorrow for all its stakeholders and the communities it operates in. This investment in the WWTP marks another milestone in Clariant’s commitment to sustainable business in India, one of its strategic growth markets. We are pursuing a dedicated strategy aimed at increasing and sharpening the focus on BU Industrial & Consumer Specialties in India,” said Adnan Ahmad, region head, Clariant in India. 

“The new WWTP is in line with our focus to uphold a greener economy. Through the treatment plant, we have reiterated the values we stand for. I am happy to see this being executed successfully and excited about its benefits going forward,” said Atul Sharma, head of operations, BU ICS, Bonthapally, at the inaugural ceremony which was held on 23 September 2019.

The Bonthapally site has been awarded a three-star rating in recognition of Environment, Health and Safety (EHS) practices in the CII-SR EHS Excellence Awards for the year 2018. It also has the Cosmetic GMP certification that helps meet customer expectations and ensures the deliverance of the highest quality products and production standards in line with European Union (EU) guidelines.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
