4 EVOLUTION OF ENVIRONMENTAL REGULATION FIRST WAVE – THE TRADITIONAL REGULATORY APPROACH SECOND WAVE – MARKET BASED INSTRUMENTS - POLLUTION CHARGES - PRODUCT CHARGES - USER FEE - PERFORMANCE BONDS - LIABILITY PAYMENTS - NON COMPLIANCE FEES - DEPOSIT REFUND SCHEME - TRADEABLE PERMITS THIRD WAVE – PUBLIC DISCLOSURE
5 BENEFITS OF PUBLIC DISCLOSURE CREATION OF MARKET OPPORTUNITIES IMPROVEMENTS IN ENVIRONMENTAL PERFORMANCE INCREASED CONFIDENCE OF INVESTORS, INSURERS AND FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS IMPROVED RELATIONSHIP WITH LOCAL COMMUNITIES, REGULATORS AND NON GOVERNMENT ORGANISATIIONS GREATER CONTROL OF ENVIRONMENTAL DISCLOSURE INCREASED STAFF COMMITTMENT
6 PRACTICED AS Involuntary – Media Exposures, Notices, PIL Etc. Mandatory – The Regulatory Mechanism like consents Voluntary – Press Release, Public Reports Etc. DRIVERS Transparency - Society Wants To Be Told What Is Going On Accountability - Fear Of Losing Significant Economic Value Of Good Corporate Reputation Synergy Between Economic And Environmental Performance

9 Environmental Performance Rating A Pioneering Initiative l U.P. Pollution Control Board, in a pioneering initiative is making efforts to change the paradigm of the way Pollution Control is commonly understood. l Dispel the notion that, Pollution Control is an end of process, cost-intensive, loss-making effort. l Rather, environmental management and pollution control means harmonizing resources, process and outputs.
10 Objectives of this Study l To place a Mirror before the industry in the form of Environmental Performance Rating to make them aware about their strengths and weaknesses as also the opportunities & threats, so as to enable self-correction and continual improvement in their environmental performance. l To encourage pro-active role by the Industry to improve its Environmental Performance through benchmarking.
11 Significance of Alcohol Industry l Downstream unit of Sugar Industry- Synergy with Sugar & Paper l Utilising wastes (Molasses) to produce Alcohol, an essential input of the Chemical & Pharmaceutical Industry and a product for human consumption. l Alcohol – great potential for use as Fuel for automobiles – GASOHOL. l But, also known for discharging highly polluted effluents and is included in Schedule-1 of Water Cess Act. An EIA is a pre-requisite before setting up of any unit or expansion thereof. (Contd…….)
12 Significance of Alcohol Industry (…. Contd.) l Significance in U.P. w Alongwith sugar, the largest value enhancer to agricultural produce. w Contributes a significant part of State GDP – next only to Trade Tax. w Major catalyst of Employment in the Primary & Secondary Sectors. w Unfortunately, also amongst the most polluting industries. u Over 10 MT of BOD load per day into the river systems of the State.
13 Alcohol Industry in Uttar Pradesh and Uttaranchal – a profile l No. of Distilleries in U.P. & Uttaranchal - 43 l No. of Operational Distilleries - 37 w No. of Molasses Based Distilleries- 35 w No. of Grain Based Distilleries- 02 w Units not operated in l Total Annual Production Capacity of the Operational Distilleries - 6,79,777 KL l Alcohol Production during ,32,489 KL
14 Analytical Framework and Methodology l The basic hypothesis for this environmental performance rating exercise has been: w Optimal resource utilisation and improved production processes are likely to result in better environmental performance. w Minimal but conscious efforts can result in achieving the environmental norms. l Therefore, the framework of the rating has three axes: w Plant performance w Regulatory compliance & w Environmental initiatives (Contd…...)
15 Analytical Framework and Methodology ( …. Contd.) l The study is based on data obtained from – w The industry w Excise Department w U.P. Pollution Control Board l The study is diachronic & covers a span of three (3) years: w , & and includes trend of Performance (Contd…...)
16 Analytical Framework and Methodology (…….Contd.) l Evaluation parameters identified. l Basic data obtained from Industry on a customized questionnaire. l The Data received analyzed and clarifications obtained from the units, as required. l Consultants team visited Eight (8) Distillery units, selected on geographical location and size, to verify credibility of the reported data on a sample basis. l Feedback taken from Senior Technical officers of UPPCB, during a series of presentations. l Authentication of the data, considered for calculating the environmental parameters, obtained from the top management of the distillery units. (Contd…...)
17 Analytical Framework and Methodology (…….Contd.) l Environmental parameters calculated for various units from the authenticated data obtained. l Latest ( ) performance & Trend analyzed. w The two grain based units separately analyzed. w Two (2) molasses-based units- one started in and the other not worked during the year , excluded. l Draft Report prepared and presented to the industry in an Open-house ( ) for feedback, after which the final report with ratings, prepared. l Individual units informed about their environmental performance scores as well as the potential for cost savings through improvement - Action Plans requested

48 5. Environmental Performance vs Gross Profit Gross Profit is directly proportional to Environmental Performance. (Available data for 14 units) Better the Environmental Performance, higher is the Profitability.
49 6. Better Environmental Performance of Grain Based Distilleries The environmental performance of Grain Based is better in comparison to molasses based distilleries Even Though their energy requirements are much higher. Notably, there is no recognition for IMFL as Whisky by WTO.
50 Savings Potential in the overall industry through improved environmental performance Potential for annual cost savings on achieving industry-best performance value: Molasses Consumption : Rs Crores Water Consumption: Rs Crores Biogas Utilization: Rs Crores Reduction in Total Energy Consumption: Rs Crores
51 Recommendations 1.Serious thinking required in respect of the bottom five (5) units having alarmingly poor environmental performance with the consequent adverse environmental impacts. 2.Mandatory installation of Primary (Biogas) stage of effluent treatment in all the molasses-based plants to generate & utilize biogas as also its close monitoring and control. Retrofitting or replacement of inefficient plants to be carried out to achieve best performance. 3.Ensuring two stage aerobic treatment in Secondary stage of the Effluent Treatment Plant in all molasses-based units discharging into stream or land.
