This project activity generates electricity using waste heat flue gases that emanate from a small steel plant. Along the process, solid waste receives a proper management, coal is saved and thermal pollution is avoided. Besides, the project contributes to the sustainable industrial growth of India.
The project is a strategic fit in the scheme of initiatives of Godawari Power and Ispat Ltd. (GPIL), a company located in the state of Chhattisgarh in India. We aim to conserve natural resources while generating electricity of up to 25 MW. This is accomplished by using waste heat flue gases emanating from a facility which is an adjunct to a mini steel plant. The released hot gases produce steam by heating up water for power generation. Thus, we save conventional fossil fuel in power generation, which is one of the sustainable development benefits the project offers through technological excellence.
The other noteworthy sustainable development benefits of this project are:
- Eliminating thermal pollution, as had these gases not been tapped for power generation, would have been released in the atmosphere and degrade the neighbourhood’s environment.
- Curtailing emission of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere amounting to an average annual CO2 emission of around 159,926 tonnes.
- Offering increased employment within and outside the company for skilled manpower and professionals, as well as for semi-skilled & unskilled manpower.
- Ensuring social benefits to the state by not making demand for electricity through the conventional grid. This enables the Electricity Board of the State to satisfy more consumers leading to more employment.
- Opening up Community Centres and Skill Development Centres in the surrounding villages by utilizing a part of the revenue arising out of this plant and associated steel manufacturing facilities.
