Conservation, effluent treatment and recycling efforts of Hindalco Industries, Jharkhand (2007)

Hindalco Industries takes up several steps to recycle water used in production processes of alumina and undertakes range of activities to augment water availability in the surrounding villages

This presentation describes the conservation, effluent treatment and recycling efforts of Hindalco Industries (Jharkhand). Alumina production is highly water intensive and has a major impact on the environment through toxic effluents and greenhouse gases. Thus any efforts to minimize water use and reduce other environmental discharges in this sector are to be encouraged strongly.

Hindalco Industries have taken several steps to recycle water used in production processes as well as in their township at Muri and have undertaken a range of activities to augment water availability in the surrounding villages through piped drinking water supply and supply for agriculture through bunds, check dams, ponds, canals and open wells. Awareness and education campaigns for local communities and training exercises on water use are among the other facets of the company's initiatives.
