NITRA introduces energy efficient technology
Sep '09
NITRA is happy to introduce to its members one of the leading Japanese energy conservation organizations, New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO) which is an Incorporated Administrative Agency, under Ministry of Economy, Trade & Industry, Govt. of Japan. The organization is dealing in international projects related to energy and environmental issues with Japanese technology.

Recently it has successfully completed projects on energy efficient technologies in Indian cement & steel sectors. Members will be pleased to know that NEDO has decided to venture into Indian textile industry for implementation of energy efficient Japanese technology with the objectives of energy saving & pollution abatement schemes under KYOTO Protocol.

In this context, the Ministry of Textiles, Govt. of India has advised NEDO to approach NITRA to undertake a national level survey in Indian textile industry to identify major textile mills with potential of energy saving where NEDO can implement energy efficiency improvement technologies. In compliance to the above, NITRA is undertaking the said survey in order to assist NEDO and help the industry as a whole.

In the first phase, NITRA will undertake a detail survey for analyzing available existing technologies and scope of improvement in energy efficiency and will also identify model factories for visit by NEDO experts. Subsequently, NEDO will tie up with these factories for implementing the said technology.

In the entire project, NEDO will bear the total cost of the equipment to be imported, whilst the unit will have to pay for custom duty and required infrastructure development such as civil construction work. It is a golden opportunity for improving energy efficiency for Indian textile industry almost at “no cost”.

Click here to participate in the survey. The filled in questionnaire should reach NITRA on or before 15th Sept. 09.
