Huhtamaki-PPL installs state-of-the-art rooftop solar power units

1.8 MW solar power units at six key manufacturing plants


Huhtamaki-PPL Ltd (HPPL), India’s flexible packaging specialist is installing state-of-the-art 1.8 MW rooftop solar power units at six key manufacturing plants across India. The rooftop solar power project will reduce 20 MT of CO2 emissions annually; equivalent to planting about 100,000 trees. All installations are equipped with net metering, online performance monitoring and high-end safety systems and will be operational within the year. The project was carried out in partnership with Swiss-headquartered Talesun Energy and EnergyX.

Talking about the project, Dr. Arup Basu, managing director, Huhtamaki-PPL said, “This project forms part of our larger environmental sustainability program that includes reduction of carbon footprint, developing innovative recyclable laminate structures and helping shape a circular economy. It is important for industry players like us to help build awareness amongst consumers that by using flexible packaging, they are being environmentally responsible.”
