Project Overview

Daimler AG has introduced a “zero discharge” policy in its new plant in Chennai in southern India. It channels water through a complex system of pipes, pumps, filters, and evaporators in a closed loop and it is continually reconditioned, with no water leaving the plant via a sewer line. The plant also aims to keep the natural water cycle intact as far as possible, with most of the water required for production coming from company-owned wells.

Project Results

Daimler AG aims to have zero discharge leave the Chennai, India automobile manufacturing plant via the sewer line.
