Vice Chairman All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA) Seth Muhammad Akbar has said that APTMA has established Sustainable Production Centre (SPC) with support of German International Cooperation (GIZ) to guide its members on improving their overall production systems through modifications and incorporating adjustments in existing processes to enhance energy efficiency.

He was addressing a seminar on “waste heat recovery solutions for textile industry” jointly organized by the SPC APTMA and GIZ at a local hotel. As many as 70 textile energy managers and mill owners attended the seminar.

Vice Chairman APTMA said textile being the largest manufacturing sector of Pakistan is badly affecting due to non-availability of electricity and gas, failing to meet production targets and yet not able to afford the associated high energy costs. To cope with the prevailing energy crisis faced by the textile industry, APTMA has initiated sustainable energy management system implementation programme, he added.

He expressed the hope that this futuristic approach of APTMA would strengthen the industry in dealing with energy management ahead.

Seth Akbar said the SPC would provide services on energy efficiency and management, material flow management, environmental management, CSR, renewable energy, policy support and advisory service on energy related matters and capacity development of industry professionals.

Both local and foreign consultants presented various options on waste heat recovery solutions including installation of absorption chillers, gasifiers, and coal water slurry (CWS) etc. The participants enthusiastically raised questions about various options and their payback time.
