Projects and Initiatives
Upscaling Energy Efficient Production in Small Scale Steel Industry in India
The project, in partnership with the Government of India and supported by AusAid, aims to upscale energy efficient interventions in the steel re-rolling mills sector and other sub-sectors of the small scale steel industry in India. This will enable mitigation of GHG emissions and lead to improvement in productivity.
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.
