UltraTech Ready Mix Concrete (RMC) business has saved water to the extent of 100 million litres through concrete recycling, keeping the baseline of 2013. In fact, UltraTech was the first company in India to adopt the 'Baton Wash' technology for concrete recycling at its plants in the year 2011.
'Baton Wash' is used to reclaim residual concrete and slurry water during the cleaning of transit mixers and plant mixers. It also separates solid materials from water. Slurry water discharged from the 'Baton Wash' is partially reused in concrete production.
Going one step ahead, UltraTech RMC again became the first in India to adopt the 'Filter Press' technology for industrial waste management. Our RMC team has deployed this technology to recover water completely from slurry and are now working on a novel concept to recycle the solids, with a long-term goal to achieve the status of a 'Zero Discharge Plant'.
