Water management has been one of the most strategic conservation measures across businesses at the Adani Group. Emphasis is made to ensure that dependence on freshwater sources is minimal, which in mutual interest of business operations, communities and the environment.
120+ Million Liters Waste Water Treated in FY 19-20
2.2+ Billion Liters Rain Water harvested
100%Water reused at mining washery
370+Ponds and Streams deepen
1900+ Ha Farmland converted to drip-irrigation
Across our Ports, we have wastewater treatment has permitted recycling of 120 Million Liters in FY19-20. This volume is enough for meeting potable water requirements of 290,000 Indian households.
Additionally, our wastewater treatment also facilitates treating water from nearby community councils.
Further, 100% of the water is recycled at our mining washery.
Desaline water is a key source of water requirement for our power plants at Mundra (Gujarat) and Udupi (Karnataka). This allows to avoid any dependency on freshwater sources.
Desaline water also supports a major chunk of water requirements within the industrial units at Mundra Special Economic Zone. Clubbed with treated water, the Mundra SEZ met 95% of its water requirement from these sustainable sources.
Rain water Harvesting
Did you know that in FY 19-20, we have harvested 2.2 billion liters of rain water which can be used for generating approximately 891 million units of electricity. This can light up 8.9 million houses for a month – considering that the average household requirement per month is 100 units.
Additionally, all major solar and wind power plants are installed with rain water harvesting systems.
Furthermore, our Ports have been able to harvest a massive over 6.76 million liters of rain water.
Pond and Stream Deepening, Check Dams and Drip Irrigation
Adani Foundation, the CSR arm for Adani Group, undertakes water conservation projects across 18+ states of India, catering to potable water requirement and irrigation.
Until now water conservation projects have reached out to 18000+ farmers catering to over 17,000 acres of land.
Further, our teams encourage the local communities to opt for drip irrigation, a water sensitive method used in agriculture. This has also touched almost 2,000 hectares of farm land saving the precious resource – water.
