The rising changes in the environment, which have been led by several factors such as the steel production sector has done a lot of damage to our environment. This is a big red flag, which can affect us in the long run.
With a legacy of 125 years in the steel industry, Kairali TMT is one of the leading manufacturers of TMT steel bars in South India. We are in the process of bringing our industry one step closer to environmental protection.
Since it’s World Environment Day, we will be discussing how we at Kairali TMT are taking measures to keep environmental impacts at bay.
Let’s dive in.
Things We Carry Out to Reduce Environmental Impacts
We, at Kairali TMT, aim to ensure benchmark standards for the products we offer to our customers.
As you know, emissions cannot be omitted. However, we control them by doing these things:
- We control emissions diligently by avoiding furnace oil.
- We set high standards with improved refining methodology.
- All our melting processes have improved FES Systems & gas coolers.
- Dedicated process updation is cascaded along by manufacturing verticals.
We are on a mission to be as environment protective as possible. And we ensure to stick to our vision and mission.
Need For Environmental Protection In the Steel Industry?
Environmental protection in the steel industry is crucial for several reasons. Steel production is known to have significant environmental impacts, including air and water pollution, greenhouse gas emissions, and resource depletion.
Here are some reasons why environmental protection is necessary in the steel industry:
Steel production involves various processes that release harmful pollutants into the air, such as particulate matter, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, and carbon monoxide. These pollutants contribute to respiratory diseases, smog formation, and climate change.
Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Steel manufacturing is a significant source of greenhouse gas emissions, particularly carbon dioxide (CO2). It is a major contributor to global warming and climate change.
By adopting environmentally friendly practices, the steel industry can reduce its carbon footprint and help mitigate climate change.
Steel production generates wastewater that contains various contaminants, including heavy metals, oils, and chemicals. Discharging untreated or poorly treated wastewater into rivers and oceans can harm aquatic ecosystems, affecting marine life and water quality.
Steel production generates significant amounts of waste, including slag, dust, and sludge. If not properly managed, these wastes can pose environmental risks, such as soil contamination and the release of hazardous substances into the environment.
Implementing waste management practices, including recycling and proper disposal, is essential to minimize the industry’s environmental impact.
Public Health Concerns
The environmental pollution caused by the steel industry can have adverse effects on public health. Poor air quality, water contamination, and exposure to pollutants can lead to respiratory problems, cardiovascular diseases, and other health issues for nearby communities.
Protecting the environment in the steel industry is, therefore, essential to safeguard public health.
To address these environmental challenges, the steel industry can adopt various measures such as implementing cleaner production technologies, investing in research and development for sustainable practices, improving waste management systems, promoting recycling and circular economy principles, and adhering to stringent environmental regulations.
At Kairali TMT, we are committed to adopting these measures to reduce the ecological impact of the steel industry and play our part in creating a sustainable and environmentally-friendly future. Our company aims to take a significant stride towards safeguarding the environment.
