Towards a Greener tomorrow

Electrosteel’s world extends beyond the perimeter of its areas of operation and encompasses the vision for a safe and pollution-free environment in the future. The Company is committed to reduce the impact of its business footprints on the environment through responsible use of natural resources and continuous improvement of processes. Some of the steps taken by Electrosteel in the direction of effective environment conservation and management have been discussed below.

  • Electrosteel effectively maintains the Environmental Management System Standard ISO: 14001 since 2004 in the manufacturing plants i.e at Khardah, Elavur and Haldia plants.
  • Electrosteel has established a 12 MW Power Plant at Haldia as a Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) project. In this project, the sensible heat in the waste gas emissions from the Coke Oven Plant and the Sponge Iron Plant is utilised for power generation, saving approximately 78,000 MT of Carbon Dioxide emissions to atmosphere every year.
  • The Haldia project is registered as a CDM project with UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention for Climate Change) under Kyoto Protocol.
  • 92% of the Waste Water at the Company’s plant is recycled and reused.
  • The Company has also taken up plantation programmes as a regular activity in all its premises as a part of green belt development.
  • Electrosteel has sponsored various campaigns for spreading awareness of environment issues in the neighborhood. Staff members from various Polytechnics, along with the Faculty of National Institute of Technology Teachers’ Training & Research were provided in-plant training on Environment and Safety Measures.

Waste Heat Utilization

Khardah Plant is reducing waste heat and helping Global Warming. Blast furnace gas at the Khardah is used for generating power and replacing oil heat treatment furnaces. Waste heat of the gas recovered and used for reheating raw material for blast furnace and foundry.
