Re Sustainability Limited’s Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) – Common Effluent Treatment Plant inaugurated by Minister of IT & Industries D Sridhar Babu  

Re Sustainability Limited (ReSL), a leading player in municipal & industrial waste management, has commissioned the ZLD common effluent treatment plant in the TSIIC industrial development area in Pashamylaram.

Set up with a total cost of INR 55 crores, the facility has a capacity of treating 480 kilolitres of industrial wastewater per day.

The CETP predominantly relies on eco-friendly natural gas for the fuel purpose to power the process, resulting in zero emissions.

HYDERABAD, MARCH 09, 2024: Re Sustainability Limited (ReSL), One of Asia’s largest waste management firms inaugurated its Zero Liquid Discharge Common Effluent Treatment Plant in the TSIIC Pashamylaram industrial park in Hyderabad to provide wastewater treatment services to the pharma bulk drug manufacturing plants. The project is a collaboration between Re Sustainability Limited and Pashamylaram Common Infrastructure Private Limited.

Minister for IT, Electronics & Communications, Industries & Commerce, and Legislative Affairs Duddilla Sridhar Babu inaugurated the facility. The event was also graced by Speaker of the Telangana state assembly Gaddam Prasad Kumar, Minister of Health, Medical & Family Welfare, Science and Technology Damodar Rajanarsimha,  Minister of Environment & Forests, Endowment Konda Surekha, Jayesh Ranjan, Principal Secretary of the Industries & Commerce (I&C) & Information Technology (IT) Departments of the Telangana government, Valluru Kranthi, Collector, Sangareddy, Goutham Reddy, Managing Director, Re Sustainability Limited, Dr. Vishnu Vardhan Reddy, Vice Chairman & MD, TSIIC, P.Madhu Sudhan, CEO, TSIIC, and Mr. Shyam Sunder, Chief engineer, TSIIC.

While Hyderabad accounts for 40% of the total Indian bulk drug production, the inadequate infrastructure capacity to handle the complex effluents, consisting of high concentrations of salts, organic matter, and microbial toxicity poses a serious challenge to the industry and a threat to public health. The Pashamylaram CETP developed by Re Sustainability, is aimed to mitigate these risks and enhance the overall effluent handling capacity.

Situated in the heart of the industrial area, the project was developed with a total capital of INR 55 crores on a DCO (design-construct-operate) model. The facility has a handling capacity of 480 kilolitres per day. The zero liquid discharge model helps in the efficient recycling of the wastewater that will be transferred back to the industries for reuse, while the solid waste generated in the process will be disposed of or recycled sustainably. The plant utilizes natural gas as the fuel in the process achieving zero emissions. Around 250 tons of natural gas is being utilized for fuel, which is also complemented by the solar power generated on the premises.

Konda Surekha said “The CETP proves that it is indeed possible for us to adopt zero-pollution, water recovery and efficient waste initiatives. I hope that this model and its success can be a catalyst for the rest of India and its industries to adopt a responsible and sustainable mode of operation with the collaboration of government and private entities. Together, with the spirit of collaboration we can definitely cement sustainability as a crucial element of India’s success story”.

“Since Pashamylaram Industrial Area’s inception which was around 1980, it has experienced a steady growth and currently houses 540 industries, among which there are over 60 pharmaceutical and chemical industries. This CETP plant offers these industries a layer of defence and provides a roadmap for sustainable operations for the budding pharmaceutical industry in Hyderabad. We are happy and proud to be a part of this initiative, and will continue to support it and its satellite initiatives like skill development, further infrastructure development and safety measures. It is the responsibility of the government to ensure this growth is an ‘inclusive growth’, and not an ‘exclusive growth’” said, Damodar Rajanarsimha.

Speaker Gaddam Prasad Kumar said “I applaud the industrialists for honouring their duty towards environmental responsibility. We are dedicated to facilitating the smooth operation of this initiative, with a focus on addressing crucial workforce challenges within this industrial zone”.

While talking about the facility, Goutham Reddy, Managing Director of Re Sustainability Limited said “As we inaugurate Telangana’s first Zero Liquid Discharge plant, we embrace a transformative approach to industrial development. By reclaiming and reusing every drop of water, this initiative ensures the most efficient and effective disposal of pharmacological waste. Through collaborative efforts among the industry representatives, the plant optimizes expenditures, deploys state-of-the-art technology, and promotes enhanced cooperation, collectively minimizing pollution levels. I am proud to say that Industry & Sustainability are now going hand in hand.”
