Ambient air quality monitoring report is enclosed in Annexure No.-1 Ambient Air Quality data is being submitted to the Authorities on regular basis VII Fugitive emission shall be 500 mg/m 2 Bag filters shall be provided for all stacks except CPP Boiler and Cooler where ESP shall be provided. The regular monitoring of fugitive emission shall be carried out by the unit as per CPCB guidelines. Bag filter will be provided at transfers points to control the fugitive dust emission. VIII Raw material will be stored in covered yards and clinker shall be stored in Silos or in a dome with all round high sidewalls to control fugitive emissions. Fugitive emissions from cement mill, packing area and coal yard shall also be controlled. Agreed 4
5 IX Vacuum dust cleaning system will be provided to evacuate dust on floors. All roads will be swept with sweeping machines. Material will be transported in tippers, covered trucks, covered containers, covered rail wagons etc. Dust collectors and extraction system (suction apparatus) shall be installed to control fugitive dust emissions at cool and lime stone unloading points, at all the transfer points, stockpiles to arrest free release of dust. Agreed X Windbreakers will be installed to restrict fugitive dust. Complied. XI. Water sprinkling arrangement should be made in the raw material stock yard and suction system for cement bag loading areas Regular water sprinkling shall be carried out at all areas where fugitive dust can be generated. Regular water sprinkling is being carried out for dust suppression.
6 XII Acoustic enclosures will be provided at all high noise equipment and place to limit the noise levels below 85dBA. Measures are being taken control noise pollution. Green Belt has been raised inside the plant to control the Noise level. Noise Monitoring Report is Annexure No.-2 XIII. Total water requirement shall not exceed 1200 m 3 /day which will be sourced from the ground water through bore wells. Copy of water withdrawal permission from the relevant authority shall be submitted before starting the project. Agreed XIV The waste water generation shall not exceed 200 m 3 /day which shall be treated in Effluent treatment Plant (ETP) and recycled/reused in cement plant for make-up cooling, dust suppression, other plant related activities and green belt development. No wastewater will be released outside the premises zero discharge shall be strictly adopted. During monsoon the wastewater will be stored in the mine pit. Water requirement will not exceed 200 m 3 /day. Dry process is used for manufacturing cement, hence there is no generation of process wastewater. Return water from cooling system is routed back to collection tank and recycled back into system. No waste water is being discharged outside the plant.
7 XV The entire domestic effluent generated from the colony will be reused after treatment, in the cement plant for cooling/plantation/gardening purpose. The treated water and sludge will also be used for green belt development. Agreed XVI No solid waste shall be generated from the project sewage sludge from STP will be used as manure for greenbelt development. Waste oil sludge shall be reused in the plant and finally burnt in the kiln or sold to authorized recyclers/reprocessors. Agreed XVII Vermin Compositing shall be adopted for disposing off bio-degradable waste from the domestic sources. Agreed
8 XVIII The company shall strictly follow all the recommendations mentioned in the Charter on Corporate Responsibility for Environmental Protection (CREP). Necessary steps are being taken. XIX Green belt shall be developed in 2039Ha. area in consultation with DFO and it will be as per CPCB guidelines. Agreed XX The company shall harvest surface as well as rainwater from the rooftops of the buildings proposed in the expansion project and storm water drains to recharge the ground water and use the same water for the various activities of the project to conserve fresh water. The project proponent is complying with all the environmental protection and safeguarding measures. XXI The Company will have a occupational Health and Safety Programme and regular medical check ups shall be undertaken for the employees and workers. Regular medical checkups and occupational health and safety programme is being undertaken for the employees and workers.
