Water Conservation Audit


Textile wet processing is a water intensive one. It also generates more effluents that are harmful to the environment. BTRA conducts audit on water consumption in process houses. This audit is most sought after by the industry.

    What BTRA Audit does?
  • Detailed shop-floor studies are undertaken to explore the areas for water conservation
  • Recommends suitable preventive/corrective measures
  • Provides required technical assistance in implementing the recommendations
  • Conducts reconciliation studies to indicate / verify the savings achieved, after the implementation of the recommendations
  • Offers suggestions to reduce effluents load
    Benefit to the Industry

    With the help of BTRA, many textile units have achieved a direct saving of water consumption between 18 % to 55 % depending upon the working conditions such as type of product mix, processing conditions, machinery set-up, etc. In addition to direct saving, water conservation measures lead to –

  • Reduction in processing cost
  • Reduction in waste water treatment cost
  • Reduction in thermal energy consumption
  • Reduction in electrical energy consumption
  • Reduction in pollutants load
