Tex Styles Ghana Limited (TSG) has inaugurated a GHÈ»8 million Water Treatment Plant at its Tema factory in the Greater Accra Region.
The treatment plant is to bolster the company’s ongoing commitment to good corporate citizenship in Ghana.
The first phase of the project will treat water using biological, Ultra Filtration and Reverse Osmosis processes.
This will allow TSG to re-use and recycle 40 percent of all wastewater generated by the factory.
Chief Executive Officer of Vlisco Group, Hans Ouwendijk said the plant will not only be beneficial by making water available to the community but will also help to meet the standards spelt out by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) delivering a positive impact on the environment.

In addition to reducing demand on the already-strained resources of the Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL), the plant will cut down the amount of waste water discharged into drains, lessening pollution in the country.
Also, more fresh water will be available to the community as the factory will require less water from the GWCL and rely increasingly on its own recycled water.
