Expected outcomes with respect to the implementation of the strategic alternatives.
|Environmental challenges||Major sources||Impact/risks assessment||Strategic alternatives||Expected outcomes|
|Solid Waste Generation||Chips/swarf generated from machining||
||Solid waste management by recycling with proper handling of chips/swarf||
|Grinding dust/sludge||Environmental damage affecting land and water||Grinding sludge treatment (Briquette technology)||
|Air Pollution (stack emission characteristics and fugitive air characteristics)||Heat treatment shop||
|Diesel generator sets (particularly set 2)||
||Hybrid energy system including at least one renewable energy source||
|High capacity centrifugal furnaces||
||Proper utilization of furnaces, installation of 100 kg furnaces||
|Noise Pollution||Machining, grinding, hammering and diesel generator||Miscommunication, stress, anxiety and hearing loss||Preventive maintenance of machines||A significant amount of sound/noise reduction may be achievable|
|Blocking of noise transmission paths|
|Use of rubber cushions for mounting|
|Dust extractor||Miscommunication||Use of rubber cushions for mounting||Overall sound reduction may be possible almost 15–18 db(A) (as per expert’s view)|
|Replacing the bearings of fan|
|Tightening loose fittings|
