Tata Steel is investing 300 million euros in environmental projects at the Ijmuiden steel mill in the Netherlands. This is stated in press release of its European division.
As part of the Roadmap + initiative, Tata Steel will commit € 150 million towards the construction of a DeNOx plant at the Ijmuiden pellet plant, which will significantly reduce emissions by reducing the production of nitrogen oxides (NOx) and heavy metal particulates by more than by 90%. The project will also include a € 50 million investment in the modernization of Coke and Gas Plant 2 (CGP2), which will help reduce odors and particulate emissions.
The Indian Metals Company will work closely with local and North Holland provincial government officials to ensure that the company is meeting and improving its emissions standards set by local environmental laws.
The latest environmental protection measures in Ijmuiden are in line with Tata Steel's aspiration to be carbon neutral by 2050 and maintain its position as the world leader in the production of steel with the lowest CO 2 per tonne .
The Tata Steel Group is one of the world's leading steel companies with an annual crude steel production of 34 million tonnes. It is one of the most geographically diversified steel producers in the world, with operations and commercial presence around the world. Group turnover (excluding Southeast Asia) for the year ended March 31, 2020 was $ 19.7 billion.
