Bhubaneswar : In continuation of the group’s commitment to sustainability and its own long-term strategic alignment with Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of UN, Tata Steel Mining Limited (TSML) has partnered with New Delhi based The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), a research institute that specializes in the fields of energy, environment and sustainable development, to conduct water audits at five of its operational facilities in Odisha to ensure more efficient use of water and its conservation.
The initiative focuses on several facets, including comprehensive water audits involving water use and water balance, water quality profiling, identification of water losses and leakages. The study aims to identify recommendations for efficient water management at these facilities concerning water reuse, recycling and conservation, as well as a reduction in specific water consumption. This will enable TSML to develop an integrated industrial water management strategy that optimises efficient use of water and improves water productivity at its units. Additionally, the results of the survey will contribute towards the National Water Mission’s goal of improving water use efficiency.
