Project Updates

Several case studies on resource efficiency measures applied in the ACIDLOOP companies have been featured in the Bulletin of the Mohali Industry Association (May issue). The interventions covered in the issue include the insulation of plating baths with polypropalene balls, the decrease of temperature in a degreasing bath, and the usage of alternative materials for jigs. The measures allowed the companies where they had been implemented to achieve annual savings of up to INR 1.7 lakhs.

The bulletin can be accessed as PDF here. The case studies are found on page 3.
