Eco-Friendly & Hygienic
The greatest emphasis will be given to the preserve environment throughout these processes. Among our major concerns, we are striving to aim for and implement a Zero Waste System and reduce our Carbon Footprint to internationally acceptable standards. In addition the plant will adhere to the highest standards of hygiene and quality in all stages of manufacture.
IMPLEMENTATION OF A HIGH QUALITY WATER SUPPLY SCHEME
As there is an acute shortage of groundwater in the Urapotta village where this project is located, arrangements have been made to implement a water supply scheme for this venture by pumping water from the Deduru Oya located 1.3 km away.
This water will be stored at a man-made reservoir and the raw water will be used for the requirements of the coconut plantation. Furthermore, the demand for domestic and potable water for the buildings including the factory, bungalows and other buildings will be met from the water treated at a modern water treatment plant.
It is hoped to install a 1MW solar panel system at our premises to supply electricity to the national grid. Arrangements are underway to obtain the Green Certificate from the Sustainable Energy Authority and discussions are under way with local banks for arranging the funding.
