Care for environment

At every stage of the alcohol making process our production units are equipped to ensure that there is minimum impact on the environment.

Power generation

  • The dried husk of the grain is burnt to produce the required heat for the alcohol making process. The resulting ash is either sold as construction material or used for landfills.

Recycling waste products

  • During the alcohol production process, waste products are created at the end of mashing and fermentation stages. This waste is residual grain that is mixed with water (also called wash). The wash is dried and sold to farmers as cattle feed.

Water recycling

  • The alcohol making process involves using large quantities of water - both a liquid and steam. At every stage the water is purified and recycled, thereby making optimum use of a scarce resource.

Air Management

  • Burnt husk fumes pass through a high voltage bed to collect fly ash, the hot air is then cooled in 3 stages and released through chimneys that are 400 feet high.
  • The Carbon dioxide generated in the fermentation process is collected and sold to manufacturers of carbonated drinks.
