It is worth mentioning here that OBBP Department of RSP
handles the raw materials coming from different mines. It has a wide network of dedicated conveyor belts to transfer the raw materials for the steelmaking process. Earlier, there was a system to control the dust generated during the transportation of Raw Materials at Base Mix Preparation and dispatch units. However, the system of local spraying was old and was not adequate to handle the increased dust. The New System has been installed at the Base Mix preparation and dispatch area in OBBP for effective containment of dust.
Notably, the new facility will help in reducing the particulate matter concentration in ambient air. It will also enhance the working environment and ensure better equipment availability.
