GAIL to supply natural gas to Tata Steel Mining ltd

01 Mar 2023

Tata Steel Mining Limited has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with GAIL (India) Limited for the supply of natural gas to its Ferro Alloys Plant at Athgarh in Odisha's Cuttack district in order to reduce its carbon footprint.

The MoU states that GAIL will supply the agreed-upon amount of natural gas via its pipeline from Gujarat to Athgarh.

Signing the MoU, Tata Steel Mining MD Pankaj Satija said, “As a responsible mining company, we are committed to protect the environment by using cleaner fuels and signing of the MoU with GAIL (India) Limited will further help us in this direction.” Furnace oil emits more carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides and sulphur oxides than natural gas does. Natural gas emits 27 per cent less CO2 and has lower levels of other pollutants, the company said in a statement.

According to the project, 968 tonnes less greenhouse gas emissions will be produced.
