First time in India - Zero Pollution at Ugar's Distilleries.

The Ugar Sugar Works Ltd., has installed and commissioned a full fledged waste water treatment plant for treating 3.6 lacs litres per day of effluent generated from a 30,000 litres per day alcohol production capacity.

The treatment system consists of Biomethanation followed by Evaporation & a Dryer System supplied by M/ s. SSP (Pvt). Ltd., Faridabad. This technology has been adopted for the first time in India by The Ugar Sugar Works Ltd.

The Technology Development Board of the Ministry of Science & Technology, Government of India has celebrated 11th May, 2006 as a Technology Day at the Hotel Ashoka, New Delhi.

The system has three advantages namely:
1) 100% achievement of the pollution control parameters prescribed by ministry of Environment, Government of India and State Pollution Control Board as a distillery unit comes under highly polluting industry under 17 categories.
2) The byproduct is a complete water soluble, fine, brownish colour powder containing mainly potash and other nutrients useful for agriculture purpose, which is a value added product
3) The 100% treated effluent water is recycled for other processes in the factory thereby saving fresh water requirement
The plant is under operation since January 2003. The company has also placed an order for its additional plant of 7 lac litres per day of effluent treatment suitable to a 45,000 litres per day of distillery capacity.
