This article discusses the energy and water conservation initiatives at Bihar Caustic & Chemicals Ltd. (BCCL). To align with global energy conservation drives, BCCL decided to go for a conversion/expansion project adopting the Membrane Cell technology which allows for less overall power consumption and higher cell efficiency, zero environmental pollution and ease of operation and maintenance. BCCL has installed a Reverse Osmosis system to reclaim the entire effluent generated in the plant.
