According to the company, the new facility, worth INR 25 million, will help purify 750 cubic meters of its effluent per day, which emanates from its production activities.
The ETP will also help the firm to recycle the wastewater (effluent) of the plant, thus helping the local environment.
Piramal Glass has a daily production capacity of 250 tons of glass per day, and can produce over 225 million bottles per year.
The company says its bottle manufacturing is also an environmentally friendly process, as broken glass or cullet is also used as a raw material in the manufacturing process.
