DSM continues to drive sustainable engineering plastics production in India
In order to achieve this significant improvement, DSM has entered into an agreement with a local wind energy producer. Over the coming years, this share is expected to increase to 50%.
The DSM site in Pune produces compounds of thermoplastic polyesters and polyamides, and has already established a strong track-record of highly efficient water management. Thanks to increased process water recycling and rigorous monitoring of potential water leakages, the operation’s water footprint was dramatically reduced by two-thirds in 2012.
Sustainability as a core value and a business growth driver
Following the announcement of the new energy deal, Geert Bonte, Global Manufacturing Director said: “DSM regards the search for more sustainable solutions as a key driver for success and profitability. In addition to delivering sustainability via the plastics we produce and the applications in which they are used, we also put a strong emphasis on further minimizing the environmental impact of our operations by reducing energy and water consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.”
