ISO 50001 to become mandatory for Pakistan's textile industry

ISO 50001, an international standard for Energy Management that was introduced in June 2011, is likely to be soon made mandatory for Pakistan's export-oriented textile industry, the All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA) Punjab Secretary Anis-ul-Haq has said.

Speaking at a seminar on "Sustainable Energy Solution" for textile industry, Mr. Anis explained that the ISO 50001 standard is devised to afford the organizations with a framework which would allow them to integrate energy performance in their operational management practices, and thus enhance efficiency of the entire supply chain.

He added that the standard is proposed to help the organizations with better utilization of their existing energy consumption assets, encourage best practices in energy management and reinforcing energy management behaviours to support projects for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

The standard is also intended at helping with evaluation and prioritization of new energy-efficient techniques, he informed.

He further revealed that an Energy Conservation Cell was set up by APTMA in 2008, and it also introduced implementation of Energy Management System (EnMS), as a joint-venture in association with GIZ GmbH and Small & Medium Enterprises Development Authority (SMEDA).

The APTMA Punjab Secretary said EnMS is a systematic approach aimed at tapping sustainable energy efficiency improvements by constantly keeping an eye on the energy flows and revision of performance parameters of the company.

The first phase of the EnMS programme intended to serve 25 mills including17 spinning, 3 processing and 4 weaving mills on first come first serve basis, has been fully subsidized by GIZ, he informed.

The 25 mills will have power saving of 7.483MW, in addition to total TOEs of 5614 and CO2 savings of 30480 tons. Besides, these mills will also have monetary savings of PKR 293 million, he added.

As stated by Anis, the 400 textile mills under APTMA are together capacitated to save 268MW of power, 200,000 TOEs and 1.08 million tons of CO2 reduction. The monetary savings capacity of these units is estimated to be around PKR 8000 million.

While advising the Association members to make the most of the energy conservation programme, APTMA Punjab Chairman Ahsan Bashir said the total energy consumption of the domestic textile industry comes to 1500MW and as depicted by global experience 10 percent energy saving can well be achieved by way of technical arrangements.
