Cement kiln is an environment-friendly place to dispose of waste where temperatures of up to 2,000 degrees celsius destroys organic compounds while enabling safe recycling of inorganic compounds into clinker chemistry. Implementation of co-processing technology makes it even more efficient by facilitating use of wastes as alternate fuels, which leads to reduction in carbon emission. A Plastic feeding double valve with a consumption capacity of 3 tonnes per day (TPD) of shredded plastic manually has been installed in the Mithapur Cement plant kiln which is enabling a 0.5 MT reduction in fuel consumption for every 1 MT of plastic processed.
Rallis is continuously working to improve its long-term sustainability. It is implementing programmes and processes to improve its environmental performance. In FY 2020-21, its total absolute emission was 69.26 million tonnes CO2e, fresh water withdrawal was 329.59 megalitres, treated water discharged was 72.13 megaliters and energy utilisation from renewable (solar) source was 3,464 Mwh.

Climate change is a major global concern and is also a very important material issue for Tata Chemicals. We are committed to transition to a low-carbon economy and have strengthened this journey through commitment to SBTi and setting of carbon reduction target aligned to well below 2 degrees.
We have conducted a climate change risk assessment for our Mithapur plant and its neighbourhood along with and adaptation strategy and action plan.
We have developed a strategy to achieve the following objectives:
We have embedded sustainability in our organisation, strategy making and all decisions we make, including:
*Excludes Fused Ash of 14,119 MT which is now being sold as a byproduct.
**Not comparable to previous year as method of measurement has been refined at TCNA
