Tata Steel supplies slag to BRO for Arunachal roads

Tata Steel said this week it has supplied 1,200 tonnes of steel slag to the Border Roads Organisation (BRO) for road construction in Arunachal Pradesh under Project Arunank.

Under this project, set up in 2008, the BRO is undertaking the construction and maintenance of roads in Arunachal Pradesh and Assam.

In a statement, Tata Steel said it has “dispatched the first ever consignment of Tata Aggreto, the company’s branded steel slag aggregates” to BRO from the company’s plant in Jamshedpur.

The rakes of Tata Aggreto and Tata Nirman steel slag aggregates were virtually flagged off by Union Minister of Science and Technology Jitendra Singh.

“We are committed to deliver sustainable products having minimal ecological footprint by adopting newer technologies and developing new products and applications. We are happy to note that BRO under Arunank Division in association with CRRI will be constructing roads in Arunachal Pradesh and we are proud to partner in this pioneering initiative for nation building,” Tata Steel vice president, iron making, Uttam Singh said.

Slag is a by-product of steel manufacturing. The use of this material in road construction not only increases durability but also helps in reducing the cost of construction.
