As the sponge iron manufacturing process consumes and generates considerable amount of fine sized inputs and outputs, the company has adopted several measures to adopt proficient waste management practices. These include installation of an intake pump, development of a waste-dumping yard to dispose of waste materials and setting up of processes for segregation of biodegradable and non-biodegradable waste. In addition, we have also undertaken mass afforestation programmes. Further, the company has provided all facilities to a Trust to set up a fly ash based brick manufacturing plant in Joda to reduce stocking of fly ash in the plant. The same is also being requisitioned for road construction. The solid waste material generated from our steel manufacturing processes are either consumed internally (during other internal manufacturing processes), sold as secondary raw materials to external manufacturers, or are disposed of for land filling purposes.
