The company officials claimed that air emissions have been reduced to 1.12 kg per tonne of crude steel in financial year 2010-11, a reduction of 55 per cent.

In addition, specific effluent discharge level of 2.5 meter cube per tonne of finished steel has been achieved, a reduction of 16 per cent, while continued thrust on solid waste management has led to an improvement of over 16 per cent, the official said.
