Embracing Sustainability: Our Commitment on World Environment Day

Our dedication to the planet is evident in every step of our manufacturing process, especially in the production of our premium mustard oil.

Sustainable Agricultural Practices in Mustard Cultivation

Mustard is a sustainable crop requiring less water and fertiliser than other oilseed crops. Mustard has a very high oil content of 40% against 18% in soybean. It can thrive in a wide range of climates and soil conditions, making it adaptable to diverse agricultural regions.

Sustainable agricultural practices are fundamental to our procurement process. For instance, P Mark Organic Mustard Oil is made from seeds sourced from certified organic farms that avoid chemical fertilizers and pesticides.

Zero-Waste Manufacturing Process

At Puri Oil Mills, we follow a zero-waste manufacturing process. Every component of the mustard seed is used, from the extracted oil to the residual meal, repurposed as animal feed or organic fertilizer. For instance, P Mark Cattle Feed & Oil Cake (Khal) serves as an excellent animal feed with approximately 7% residual saturated oil content.

We contribute to a circular economy by reusing and recycling materials within our production cycle, promoting sustainability at every stage. The whole process can be seen below:

Renewable Energy

In line with our commitment to sustainable energy, we harness hydroelectric power to produce electricity. Our hydropower projects, managed by our subsidiary POM Hydro Energy Limited, include seven small hydropower projects across Himachal Pradesh and Haryana with a total capacity of 31 MW.


Hydroelectricity is a renewable energy source that generates power without releasing CO2, making it an environmentally friendly alternative to fossil fuels. This initiative supports Sustainable Development Goal 7, which aims to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable, and modern energy for all. This eco-friendly alternative plays a crucial role in addressing climate change, reducing carbon emissions, and conserving fossil fuel reserves. These projects exemplify our commitment to sustainable energy solutions and our role in promoting a greener future.

Conclusion

At Puri Oil Mills Limited, we are passionate about sustainability and strive to incorporate it into everything we do. We continuously work towards reducing our environmental footprint and promoting sustainable practices. Our commitment to the planet and future generations drives us to innovate and improve every step of our manufacturing process. As we move forward, we remain dedicated to making a positive impact and fostering a more sustainable world for all.
