India's 1st EAF Plastic Injection System at Vijayanagar

JSW Steel has always been a frontrunner in developing and adopting new technologies.

In continuation to the ethos of effective waste management driven by JSW Foundation and our ongoing initiatives of making a plastic-free environment, Steel Melting Shop (SMS)3 has developed and commissioned first its kind technology - EAF Plastic Injection System, in India at JSW Steel Vijayanagar Works. Among very few in the world, this technology helps in injecting plastic waste and residue into Electric Arc Furnace (EAF).

As of today, plastic consumption of the Vijayanagar Steel plant is around 1.2 tons per day (TPD). However, it’s estimated that we churn out over 3 tons of plastic every day. Considering the growing awareness and sensitivity towards the environment, this novel intervention may prove to be a model project for other JSW Group locations to emulate and implement in near future. It’s definitely a significant step towards our many other Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In long run, this project will not only positively impact our environment but will also impact our bottom-line through its cost-saving potentials.
