Electrosteel recognises its responsibility to the wider environment extending beyond the perimeter of its areas of operation and encompassing the vision for a safe and pollution-free environment in the future. The Company is committed to reduce the impact of its business footprint on the environment through the responsible use of natural resources and the continuous improvement of its processes. Some of the steps taken by Electrosteel in the direction of effective environment conservation and management are overviewed below.

  • Electrosteel has established a 12 MW Power Plant at Haldia as a Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) project. In this project, the 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.

Staff members from various Polytechnics, along with the Faculty of National Institute of Technology Teachers’ Training & Research regularly receive in-plant training on Environment and Safety Measures.

Waste Heat Utilization

Khardah Plant is commited to initiatives to reducing waste heat and helping reduce global warming.
