The Essar Steel Pune facility recently unveiled its well-equipped environment
laboratory. PP Dhayagude, Sub-Regional Officer, Maharashtra Pollution Control
Board (MPCB), Pune, formally inaugurated the laboratory.
Stocked with the latest equipment to monitor effluent, stack and ambient air, the lab also has a dedicated environment chemist on-site for daily analysis of samples and ensuring that the facility remains compliant with MPCB norms.
Mr Dhayagude was all praise for Essar Steel’s efforts towards minimizing environmental pollution. The company is probably the only company in Pune’s Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation area with its own environment laboratory, he said, adding that the company was setting an example for its peers. The MPCB officer also urged the facility to send in a nomination for the Maharashtra state environment award.
