Textile mills, GEDA tie up to reduce energy consumption
City-based textile processors have tied up with state government-owned Gujarat Energy Development Agency (GEDA) and Man-Made Textiles Research Association and Man-Made Textiles Research Association in south Gujarat, including Surat.
At present, energy cost-water, coal and electricity - is about 40 per cent in the overall cost of production of finished polyester fabrics in the textile mills. A licensed agency approved by GEDA and research scientists of MANTRA will be providing inputs on reducing energy costs by cutting down on usage of water, coal and electricity as per international standards of polyester fabric production.
