Aquatech recently completed a project for Nirma, a multi-sector fast moving consumer goods brand. Nirma manufactures products ranging from cosmetics, soaps, detergents, salt, soda ash, LAB and injectables. It is the largest selling detergent brand in India and number one in soda ash capacity in the world. The facility is located in Gujarat, a water scarce region in western India.
When Nirma expanded their facility, they had an increased requirement for fresh water. Nirma selected Aquatech to design and supply a new 25 million liters per day seawater reverse osmosis system (SWRO). Aquatech was chosen due to its advanced technology with a focus on pretreatment, energy optimization and overall water recovery.
After studying the feed water quality and issues with the existing operation, Aquatech proposed its patented LoWatt technology for the new SWRO plant. This process will reduce energy consumption for the facility and deliver water at a low cost to Nirma.
