Heubach Colorants Takes Sustainability Step

MONDAY, JANUARY 9, 2023


Color solutions manufacturer of pigments and pigment preparations Heubach Colorants India Limited (Navi Mumbai, Maharashtra) announced in an emailed press release that it has recently invested in a solar power plant for its Roha site and a wind-solar hybrid power plant for a site in Cuddalore.

Heubach employs 498 employees and generated sales of INR 8.395 billion (about $101.6 million) for the financial year ending March 31, 2022.

Regarding the recent investment in solar energy, Head of Sustainability Heubach Group Thomas Lindner said, “The production of pigments and preparations is particularly energy intensive. Therefore, the increase in energy efficiency and the switch to renewable energies is one of our top priorities. Our Indian hybrid energy and solar projects are a great step toward reaching our sustainability goals.”

Once in operation, Heubach shares that more than 65% of the energy for the sites will be supplied by renewable sources. In the coming weeks, the company is expected to close the investment process of the endeavor.

Bharath Sesha, Managing Director of Heubach Colorants India Limited, said, “Heubach Colorants India Ltd is well aligned with India’s net-zero carbon emissions goal, and we are committed to powering our growth through renewable sources of energy.

“Both of our projects are expected to start commercial operations by September 2023 and will aid in reducing our manufacturing carbon emissions by over 12 tons per year.”

Responsible management and sustainability are key to the Heubach Group, according to the company, as its products contribute to extending the life of materials and outdoor structures.
