MEASURES BEING TAKEN TO MITIGATE GHG EMISSIONS AND EFFORTS REGARDING CLIMATE CHANGE BY RINL-VSP

Energy Efficiency EnMS ISO: 50001 GHG Management

GHG MANAGEMENT

 

RINL is participating in World Steel Association (WSA) CO2 Data Collection programme annually and achieved Climate Action Member certification by WSA.

RINL strives reduce carbon dioxide emissions in all stages of steel making by

  • Installing state of art cleaner technologies

  • Process improvement

  • Waste recycling

  •  Afforestation

 

  • The state of Art cleaner technologies envisaged in the design stage has resulted in reduction of GHG emissions by 1.3 Million tons annually

  • RINL is reducing about 3 Million tons of CO2 by installing energy efficient technologies, process modification, capacity enhancement of sinter plants, rebuilding of blast furnaces etc.

  • Waste recycling such as benzol muck, tar sludge into coke ovens and metallurgical wastes, LDSlag into Sintering contributing significantly for reducing carbon dioxide emissions.

International Cooperation

RINL implemented 20.6 MW Waste heat recovery project on Sinter Cooler Waste Heat Recovery system on sinter machine 1 & 2 under Green Aid Plan of NEDO of Japan. This project is first of its kind in Indian Steel Industry. The project was commissioned on 31.07.2014 and dissemination workshop was conducted.

  

 

Usage of BF Granulated Slag

Usage of granulated Blast Furnace Slag in Portland Puzzalona Cement production is reducing GHG emission as it is replacing Clinker. Usage of BF slag in cement production reduces Carbon dioxide emissions by 0.55 tons as energy required for production of clinker is reduced.

 

Afforestation

RINL has taken ambitious target of planting 1 tree for every ton of steel installed capacity. RINL has carried out extensive afforestation and planted about 5.18 million tree so far. Extensive Tree cover and mass plantation is acting as carbon sink. RINL also participated in Green Visakha Campaign and planted about 2.31 lakh samplings as part of mass plantation drive.
