In line with powering a greener world, MPL initiated tree plantation to develop a green belt in and around its premises. This improves the aesthetic of the surrounding area and has following benefits-
Utilisation of waste has always been a prime focus area to minimize environmental liability. Cutting of naturally grown tiger grass as a housekeeping measure and disposing those dry grasses by burning through control fire is a routine activity. We have developed an innovative idea of laying the cut tiger grass over the top surface of ash in ash pond as a mat upto a width of approx 15 mtr from the inner bund of ash pond.
This stops the ash particles to get air borne from that covered part. This initiative has covered an area of approx 15000 sq meter.
Recycling and reusing the waste water instead of using fresh water for mitigating coal dust in surrounding area of coal yard, Maithon CHP team has managed to save upto 240 kl of fresh water. This fresh water saved can be used for human consumption and other better purposes.
MPL actively pursues environment awareness among employees, employee's family, contractor employees and in neighbouring communities through organizing different programmes.
Every year "Environment day" is celebrated. On this occasion various programmes such as tree plantation, slogan competition and quiz competitions are organised. Employee's families particularly kids are encouraged to participate in these programmes.
'Club Enerji' has been introduced through a primary sensitization programme among the school students. The programme includes interactive sessions through In-class educational Film and presentation are undertaken to reinforce the content and assess the integration of thought into action, school children are trained to understand the basics such as interpretation of electricity bills, basic steps that will help curb wastage of power at home, school and society with the help of Energy Audits and Energy Calculators, optimizing the use of electrical gadgets / devices at home with the participation of family members, recording and sharing the effective practices adopted and results within their immediate circle.
