Towards the suppression of dust in mining areas, regular water sprinkling is done round the clock. For the treatment of domestic waste water of residential colonies, Sewage Treatment Plants are in operation. ESP’s have installed in Thermal Power Project to control the emission in Boiler Stacks as well as Dry Fog Systems has installed to control fugitive dust emission during material handling through Conveyors.

Renewable Energy:

Total green energy generation till August 2016 is 15,84,703.82 MWhr which in turn equivalent to reduce CO2 generation up to 15,49,364.92 Tons.
