Mr. Ashok Sheth, Chairman, Solitaire Machine Tools Ltd
1. In our opinion, Green Manufacturing is a many faceted subject. Each organization would be able to contribute to this aspect in different ways.
2. We feel that Generating powe, savings of water, savings of oil and lubricants, avoidance of loss of compressed air, etc. are a step in the right direction.
3. We have set up Solar Power at both the plants and we are generating about 50% of Power consumed by us from Solar Power. This means substantial savings on state- run electricity boards supply.
4. We have done Rain water harvesting in our second plant. This has improved water available to us through bore as well as brought water table higher than previously available to us as well as adjoining companies. The area was built over an old Chemical unit and now with joint effort of various units, the rain water harvesting has improved quality of water. This again reduces strain on Municipal water supply.
5. The oil used in manufacturing as well as for use in machines manufactured by us was being wasted to large extent. Checks have been put in place and we have reduced consumption.
6. As we all have learned, the most expensive commodity is compressed air. Most of the wastage is by leaking air lines around the plant. With better quality of fittings and pipelines, the wastage has been brought down. The compressor operating time is down and gives reduction of use of electricity as well as other oil and maintenance.
7. We also plant a large number of trees around our plants and ensure that the atmosphere in the plants is much cooler than ambient temperature.
Each of the above measures makes the world a little better. This is not all. We could much more and we all have to keep on looking for ways and means to improve the world we live in.
