Privi believes that improving energy efficiency is the best way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and for such a hugely energy intensive sector, boosting efficiency also has beneficial consequences for the organization. As an energy intensive sector, the chemical industry has made great strides in reducing its energy consumption.

The areas which have made an impact are many and it has long been recognized that the energy guzzling equipment used within a production plant, compressors, pumps and refrigeration systems can play a significant role in improving energy efficiency

Key measures towards Energy Conservation
  • Captive COGEN turbines for two units.
  • Conventional chillers replaced with Vapor absorption Machine running on flash steam.
  • Heat recovery from distillation column condensers.
  • Introduced efficiency class motors of IE2 & IE3 code in all new requirements.
  • Air compressor pressure optimization to achieve reduction in power consumption.
  • Providing VFD’s for high HP motors
  • Shift to LED from CFL.
  • Optimized production by automation to achieve a 5% reduction in consumption of water, steam and power.
  • Installed Thermo syphon re-boilers to replace forced circulation technology.
  • Usage of Bio mass from Aerators of ETP as a solid fuel in steam boilers.
  • Refine & reuse of drained lubrication & engine oil.

Privi is actively discussing Solar power projects to have 25% of its total electricity requirements through renewable power by 2025.
