The global emphasis on sustainability has undeniably permeated the laundry sector, and India stands at the forefront of this transformation. The textile industry, globally recognised as the second-largest polluter, has spurred an immediate call for eco-friendly laundry practices. In India, a country where textiles significantly bolster the economy, the shift towards sustainable laundry can indeed make a monumental difference.
According to a report by the Water Aid Organisation, India is the largest user of groundwater in the world, extracting more groundwater than China and the US combined. This makes the adoption of water-efficient laundry solutions even more crucial for the nation. The Laundrex India Expo 2023, a pivotal segment of the Clean India Technology Week 2023, is dedicated to spotlighting this green evolution in laundry. The event is set to unveil innovations such as waterless washing technologies, biodegradable detergents, and energy-conserving machines. These groundbreaking solutions not only diminish the environmental impact but also promise substantial long-term economic savings.
The Indian government, in its commitment to a sustainable future, has been instrumental in driving change. The Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) mandate, for instance, compels industries, including laundries, to recycle and reuse wastewater, thereby curtailing freshwater consumption. This initiative is particularly significant considering a study by the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) which revealed that Indian industries discharge about 13,468 million litres of untreated wastewater daily.
