Welspun’s 30MLD Sewage Treatment Plant

As part of its initiative to adopt complete sustainability in its manufacturing process, Welspun has built a massive 30MLD sewage treatment plant at Anjar. This plant is capable of collecting sewage and wastewater and recycling it into purified, usable water that can be used for the company’s dyeing process. The plant is capable of meeting all the water needs of Welspun’s Anjar facility. The company claims it recycles 7 billion litres of wastewater through the plant, which is the equivalent of New York City’s water supply requirement of 5 years!

Sustainable Fabrics which Embrace a Circular Economy

Among the biggest initiatives by the global textile industry is its transition towards a circular economy. Using recycled materials and repurposing wasted and defective garments into wearable fabrics is one of the industry’s greatest sustainability wins. Welspun Living inculcates many circular practices into its manufacturing process for products such as spunlace non-woven fabrics. These include replacing virgin polyester with recycled LDPE, using textile waste to reduce plastic consumption, and using horticulture and kitchen waste in the company’s biogas plant for producing compost and waste energy.

Embracing Sustainability through the Better Cotton Initiative

The Better Cotton Initiative is a Non-Profit Organization that is set up around incentivizing and inculcating sustainable cotton production and harvesting practices among cotton farmers. Welspun Living partners with The Better Cotton Initiative to train Indian cotton farmers and encourage them to adopt sustainable cotton farming practices. The company utilizes organic cotton, which it only sources from farms that are a part of the BCI. As part of this initiative, Welspun Living is preparing 14,000 Indian farmers to completely adopt sustainable practices.

From Virgin Polyester to Recycled Polyester

Welspun Living has begun its transition from using virgin polyester, which has a large carbon footprint to recycled polyester. Recycled polyester is obtained from waste PET bottles, preventing them from contributing to landfills. Recycled polyester is just as good and serves the same purpose as virgin polyester, but plays a major role in the circular economy.

Employing Renewable Energy Sources

Welspun Living, as a home textile manufacturer, and fabric manufacturer, is transforming its energy consumption footprint by adopting renewable energy sources. At the forefront of this effort is the company’s utilization of Solar Energy to power its manufacturing units. Additionally, the company is also exploring ideas around cleaner transportation and logistics solutions, like EVs for material transport and employee commutes. Additionally, the company’s revolutionary efforts at its Anjar plant have led to a significant reduction in its carbon footprint.

These five innovations are just a glimpse into the exciting world of sustainable fabrics. At Welspun, we're not just watching from the sidelines, we're actively participating in this green revolution. We believe that the textile industry can be a force for good, and we're committed to weaving a more sustainable future for everyone. So, the next time you slip into your favorite clothes, remember the incredible innovations that are changing the fabric of fashion, one thread at a time.
