Re Rolling Profits
The project implemented in Rajasthan, in partnership with the Global Environment Facility and the Ministry of Steel, Government of India, has helped steel re-rolling mills that were using outdated, low-investment technologies adopt cleaner, energy-efficient tools to produce steel. As a result of this, electricity consumption has reduced from 100 units to 80 units per ton of steel, and furnace oil used from 45 litres to 35 litres per ton of steel. In addition, cleaner technologies and automated machines have resulted in healthier working environments and less labour intensive for workers.
Energy Efficiency in Steel Re-rolling Mills
Steel production is an energy-intensive process that generates a large amount of solid waste and greenhouse gases. In partnership with the Ministry of Steel, Government of India, the project aims to increase energy efficiency of steel re-rolling mills sector, reduce associated emissions and enable penetration of environmentally-sustainable, energy efficient technologies in this sector.
Stories of Change
A joint partnership between UNDP and the Ministry of Steel, Government of India and Global Environment Facility is helping energy-intensive steel sector save up to 40 percent on energy consumption enabling entrepreneurs to reap greater profits.
