JAMSHEDPUR:  Tata Power, India’s largest integrated private power utility, has undertaken various initiatives and conducted workshops to educate and spread awareness about the utilisation of fly ash from thermal coal-based plants for construction.

In a recent development, Tata Power’s Jojobera thermal power station started manufacturing fly ash bricks. The technology adopted for making fly ash bricks is eco-friendly. It does not require steaming or auto-claving as the bricks are cured by water only. Since a firing process is avoided, there is no emission and no effluent is discharged. The bricks manufactured are being used inside the plant for making walls and for civil repairing jobs.

The fly ash brick plant is in line with the company’s sustainability policy and is a step towards social commitment.

Speaking on the initiative, PL Manjrekar, general manager, Jojobera thermal plant, Tata Power, said, “At Tata Power our commitment to sustainability is paramount, and this step of utilisation of ash is a testimony to the same. Currently in India, maximum power generation is coal-based and utilisation of fly ash is a challenge. Hence fly ash management is imperative. We are glad that we are utilising the waste generated for our own use in an environment-friendly manner and are also sensitising people on optimum utilisation of waste material.”
