DBL Ceramics has formed multiple committees with more to make a trustworthy relationship between the workers and the company. These committees consist of representatives of both the employers and the workers. The committees hold regular meetings to promote mutual trust, understanding, and cooperation between the employers and the workers.
Everyday DBL Ceramics, with its two state-of-the-art Waste Treatment plants, treats about 18,000 cubic meters of waste generated during its production process. Therefore, there is zero discharge of the wastewater into the environment by DBL Ceramics.
DBL Ceramics installed dust collectors at almost every stage of the production process to capture dust particles or powder generated during the production process. Moreover, rejected unfired and fired tiles are collected and stored in the right places for further production. Furthermore, all the waste that originated from the production floor is sent to the Waste Treatment Plant for treatment. Consequently, DBL Ceramics poses minimal environmental impact during the production process.
DBL Ceramics has incorporated the most updated machinery with energy-efficient motors (IE2/IE3), inverters to use energy rationally. Moreover, it has facilities like an energy cogeneration system to generate power from hot flow gas generated in Kiln. It can reuse the energy in other types of machinery like Tunnel Dryer, Horizontal Dryer and the Kiln itself. Doing so saves around 40 million cubic meters of natural gas every year. Furthermore, it is implementing the energy cogeneration system by 2022 to generate further energy from the Generator hot exhaust gas to reuse them in Spray Dryer which will elevate the yearly natural gas saving to about 230 million cubic meters from the existing number. Furthermore, instead of using normal T5/T8 tube light, DBL Ceramics installed LED light in the factory premises, saving around 0.44 Kw-H electrical energy per year.
DBL Ceramics uses natural resources rationally. Aiming at reducing underground and raw materials consumption, DBL Ceramics reuses wastewater, spray-dried powder, unfired rejected tiles and fired left tiles in the production process.
Due to complete vitrification in tiles due to high-temperature firing during production, they hold a longer useful lifespan in application than most other flooring materials such as Cork, Vinyl, and Laminate. This feature leads to a reduction in the amount of waste generated.
