APTMA optimistic about energy saving technique

Implementation of the German energy management programme has helped around 18 textile units to save Rs 166 million in energy consumption last year. The same technique if implemented across the entire industry could save Rs 9.5 billion for the industry, every month.

The All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA) in association with a German non-governmental organisation GTZ started a pilot project for 25 textile units, with a view to enable the industry to make the best of the available energy.

Of the 25 units, around 18 units picked up for the purpose implemented this energy saving programme with diverse intensity levels ranging between nine to 84 percent. The cost of such implementation for these 18 units spread across the country came to Rs 19 million.

Samin Textiles Limited made the most of this programme with highest annual saving of Rs 53 million in energy, with an investment of Rs 1.98 million. The programme also helped the unit to decrease 5,270 tons of carbon dioxide and to reach 77 percent of its energy conservation potential.

Even with minute changes in the mills and with no investments the results in saving delivered by the programme are quite significant, and if the mills can spend some amount on adding or refurbishing some equipment the results could be considerably good.

Further, APTMA is optimistic that the energy saving technique if implemented across the entire industry could result in saving of Rs 9.5 billion per month, and can very well help them to tackle the ever-mounting energy expenses.
