ENVIRONMENT CONSERVATION & RE-CYCLING

Effulent Treatment & Conservation:

  1. Indian Ministry for Power, Coal, New and Renewable Energy released NTPC Book on bio diversity “The Good Earth ” to commemorate Environment Day. As per honourable Minister Indian economy shall grow by leaps and bound and so will NTPC fulfilling the aspirations of all Indians.
  2. The mission of the present government is to increase use of clean technologies and renewable for power generation making Clean India Energy Capital of the world. It is also important to emphasize on the need to restore the forest cover depleted over a period of time through massive tree plantation. So, Companies like NTPC need to increase its tree plantation target and keep a proper record reflecting ownership of the activity. NTPC now is nurturing a green patch in all the states it has operations in.
  3. As the biodiversity forms the cornerstone of ecosystem functions and services that support millions of livelihoods in the country. In India the companies that are promoting biodiversity conservation are largely trusted by their stakeholders and typically enjoy strategic business opportunities in the markets.
  4. Twelve national biodiversity targets having relevance for NTPC include integration of biodiversity concerns in economic and social development, minimization of pollution impacts, conservation and augmentation of natural resource base. Massive plantation around the power projects, eco-rehabilitation of ash dykes, development of greenbelts, eco parks, fruit gardens, medicinal plant gardens, Nakshatra Vatika, conservation of certain endangered species reflects the deep-rooted commitment of Core Companies to the cause of Conservation.
  5. We cater to the following set of Industries with our services, for Effluent treatment on Turnkey basis, an added measure to Environment Conservation. These are:
    • Distillery including Fermentation Industry
    • Sugar
    • Fertiliser
    • Pulp & Paper (Paper manufacturing with or without pulping)
    • Chlor-Alkali
    • Pharmaceuticals
    • Dyes and Dye Intermediates
    • Pesticides
    • Oil Refinery (Mineral oil or Petro refineries)
    • Tanneries
    • Petro-chemicals (manufacture of and not merely use of raw material)
    • Cement
    • Thermal Power Plants
    • Iron & Steel (Involving processes from ore/scrap, and Integrated Steel Plants)
    • Zinc Smelter
    • Copper Smelter
    • Aluminium Smelter Industries.

AECL is engaged in Co-ordinating and supply of required latest technology and services for Effluent treatment to the Indian Industry, actively promoting pollution free environment.

Re-Cycling:

  1. Concerns over resource depletion are increasing in India because rising factory output, urbanization and population putting pressure on existing resources.
  2. National Resource Efficiency Policy has been drafted by the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change with the aim to double the recycling rate of key materials to 50 per cent in next five years and also enable upcycling of waste.
  3. The agenda is to develop a circular economy. This can be achieved by two measures—firstly by recycling the materials, and secondly, by increasing the efficiency of use of these resources. India’s 96 per cent mining capacity is located in 13 mineral-rich states of Madhya Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Jharkhand, Gujrat, Odisha, Chhattisgarh, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, West Bengal, Telangana, Goa and Rajasthan.
  4. India remains import dependent for critical materials such as molybdenum, copper and nickel even after meeting its current demand for raw materials for thermal power generation, iron and steel, aluminium, cement and mineral fuels for coal and lignite. This could make it vulnerable to supply shocks, considering rising material consumption, which is up six-fold from 1.18 billion tonnes in 1970 to 7 billion tonnes in 2015.
  5. Linear production and consumption is leading to a lot of wastage in the entire value chain. Opportunities exist at each and every stage of the product cycle which can be utilized, especially at a time, when the economy is going through a rough patch. The automobile sector is under serious stress and dependent on import of a lot of materials; this is the right time for India to position itself better to future demands.
  6. For different sectors, National Draft Policy (NDP) will help in developing the resource efficiency strategies which is a three-year action plan and the seen key sector which has been identified to begin this plan are:
    • Automobile,
    • Plastic packaging,
    • Building and construction,
    • Electrical and electronic equipment,
    • Solar photo-voltaic and
    • Steel and aluminium sector
  7. Under the act by National Green Tribunal (NGT) which imposed the ban on diesel vehicle, to collect such vehicles, government has set up the centres for it and carry out for the de-registration process and shredding centres which would segregate the materials for recycling.
  8. By 2020, across all major urban centres, around 20 official dismantlers would be established. For the vehicles which made before 1990, 75 per cent recycling rate would be considered for it, 85 per cent for the vehicles between 1990-2000 and 90 per cent for the vehicle after the 2000.
  9. Another concern is plastic waste in which 8 per cent contribution is of solid waste.
    By 2025, NDP aims to reach at 100 per cent recycling also reuse rate Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) plastic.
  10. NDP also aims to reduce the dependency on virgin materials and increase the re-use of construction and demolition waste so that, approximately 30 per cent of total public procurement of materials for civil construction can be from recycled materials by 2025.

AECL & TECI are engaged in providing Turnkey services for Re-cycling Projects Such as: Metals (Ferrous- Non-Ferrous), Plastic waste, Electricals & Electronic waste, imported as well as procured from Local sources. We have collaboration globally for Plant & Equipment alongwith latest know-how to make the process economically viable & technically feasible.
