Energy Efficiency in Production
Our business relies on abundant sources of water, whether it is in manufacturing or providing clean water for workers wherever we operate. The water usage associated with manufacturing is a significant part of our overall water footprint. Hence, addressing water usage, quality and availability within our direct operations not only reduces our overall environmental footprint, it also makes good business sense to operate as efficiency and cost effectively as possible.
Noman Group was one of the pioneers in Bangladesh to strictly enforce guidelines for water quality standards set by international buyers. Since the beginning, we have been tracking water usage throughout our factories across the country. With that data, we are able to compare across facility types and develop targets for water reduction at each factory.
The facilities at Noman Group are prudently designed and operated in eco-friendly manner in order to minimize the environmental impact. Noman Group possesses the country’s largest biological Effluent Treatment Plant (ETP), ensuring that the water used in production returns to natural sources without any harmful substances. The volume of treated water currently stands at a staggering 1000 M3/hour. We also use the sludge in cement clinker manufacturing.
We are focused on future efforts that go beyond keeping water clean to comprehensive water management programs.
