SIDBI- EDI Project for

Implementing Business Development Services (BDS) in Dyes & Chemicals (including Packaging Material) Cluster at Ahmedabad



Bipin Shah Hemant Agarkar Saumil Dave Riken Shah

Dear Readers, This is the second year of the project and we are pleased at the response, we are receiving from the stakeholders such as; entrepreneurs involved in the dyes and chemical industries, BDS and concerned industry associations. The first year of our efforts to sensitize the stakeholders has yielded good results. This year we have planned hardcore activities, such as establishment of PTP (Primary treatment plant), Formation of a SPV (Special purpose Vehicle), Energy audits and its implementation, Cleaner production techniques and its implementation. The SPV will enable members in raw material purchase and also help in marketing. A timely intervention by Institute's efforts to bring together the BDS and MSME units have led a way to the evolution of equipments for reducing the hazardous levels of effluent, thus fulfilling the legal and social obligations. These equipments are cost effective and affordable to the MSMEs. We expect the BMO's to take up from here and disseminate information to the stake holders. The activities to follow are finding out a possibility of creating a CFC for research and development and carry out critical tests for the dyes manufacturing units. EDI have also planned visits of entrepreneurs at both, domestic and international levelsl, in association with the BMO's to explore marketing of local products. Hope is the best medicine for all ailments.

Common Testing Facilities ­ Common Laboratory

A visit to Vapi ­ Centre of Excellence

Under this project, EDI is planning to set-up Common Testing Facility-A common laboratory for dyes & chemicals at Ahmedabad. As proposed by Mr. Kirit Patel, President, Vatwa Industries Association (VIA), a visit to Vapi Center of Excellence has been planned to get an idea about setting up similar facilities for the dyes and chemicals industry entrepreneurs at Ahmedabad. Hence EDI team and Mr.S Venkatramanan, Sr. Consultant from Foundation for MSME Clusters (FMC),visited Centre of ExcellenceVapi.Mr. Shyam Devadiga, CEO provided all the information and suggested to avoid duplication of testing facilities at Gujarat. The centre has state of the art laboratory instruments such as; Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectrometer (NMR), Gas Chromatograph Mass Spectrometer (GCMS), Particle size analyser and Gas Chromatograph (GC). The common testing facility of Vapi may be useful in matters related to effluent analysis. The facility is not useful for online process study as this is cumbersome and will not be useful to MSME units. It was therefore decided that a joint decision of EDI and industry associations will be taken very soon for setting up of Common Testing Facility at Ahmedabad.

Formation of a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV)

EDI conducted the Diagnostic Study of the Dyes and Chemicals Cluster, Ahmedabad in May 09, SPV emerged as one of the important requirement of the stake holders in MSME units. The basic purpose of setting up of SPV is to enhance competitiveness of the smaller units of the cluster. EDI had conducted a series of meetings of i n t e r e s t e d entrepreneurs during May-June, 2010.During the m e e t i n g s , discussions were held about the formation of SPV for common marketing & raw material purchase. 25 members have given their consent to form SPV. A core committee comprising of 3 persons among these 25 members who will work on completing legal formalities. The members have decided to form SPV under section 25 Act and in the first phase, they will start with "common purchase "as their main function. As a result of this positive thinking of about 25 MSME units, the SPV will be introduced very soon. EDI has appointed Ms. Anita Joshi, a Company Secretary, to undertake the assignment and lead to the finalization of the registration process.

Setting up of Primary Treatment Plant(PTP) in the cluster:

As part of the project it was decided to set up demonstration PTP at one of the member's unit and a proactive entrepreneur of the cluster with an objective to extend awareness about pollution control in the industry. EDI has planned to upgrade the existing PTP of M/s. Avani Dye Chem Pvt. Ltd. M/s. Avani Dye Chem Pvt Ltd is engaged in manufacture of Reactive Turquoise Blue, Blue15, Blue 21, etc. The unit generates acid and wash waters. The acid is being used for gypsum manufacturing; whereas wash water is treated in the existing PTP. While carrying out this activity, it has been ensured that the unit fulfills norms laid down by Common Effluent Treatment Plants (CETP). This will become a benchmark PTP and other units in the cluster, after reviewing the system may follow the suit in their treatment system. EDI had appointed Mr. Tarak Parikh, EPMPL, a BDS provider from environment field and given the task to monitor that this unit will achieve CETP norms. Process was carried out in two phases: First, treatability s t u d y o n wastewaters and second, actual implementation as per the reportMr. Tarak Parikh, Filter Nutch installed in tank under PTP upgradation at EPMPL had taken Avani Dye-Chem Pvt. Ltd. samples of the PTP effluent, analysed in laboratory and presented treatability implemented and now they are able to study report.

Ensuring Cleaner Production (CP) in the cluster:

Prof Vipul Shah and team presented their observations under CP study at 3 units.

EDI consultant suggested change in alignment of pulley and motor of Ball Mill at Prince Industries.

CP is a preventive strategy that aims to reduce pollution at source. Any unit involved in this industry can achieve CP provided it is properly aware about the advantages. CP is a methodical and structured approach. In this study, the consultancy fee is subsidized by SIDBI. Till date, CP studies have been started in following companies: M/s. Vidhi Industries, M/s. Mahak Industries, M/s. Shreeji Industries, M/s. Prince Industries, M/s.Chemclone Industries, and M/s. Nand

Chemicals. Some more units are also identified and work will start soon for them. EDI has already identified following CP consultants:- Prof Vipul Shah, Vipul Shah & Associates- Mr. Samir Choksi, Ramans Consultancy Pvt Ltd- National Productivity Council- Mr. Snehal Satyapanthi, Vasudev Associates

Prof Vipul Shah has involved students from Nirma University for CP study in his team. This will help to introduce new BDS providers in CP field. At Vidhi Industry, Prof Vipul Shah and Nirma Uni. team is working on column distillation to remove Nitro Benzene from solvent. This change will save up to 30 % power in Ball Mill. There are so many areas for waste & cost reduction through CP exercise in these industries.
