Green Initiatives

In line with the endeavor of the country to address various issues of global warming, NFL is also leaving no stone unturned in order to reduce carbon footprints in terms of energy reduction, recycling of waste & treated effluent and use of renewable & efficient source of energy etc. In this regard, NFL has successfully executed the revamps of its three Fuel Oil based plants for changeover of the feed stock from Fuel Oil to Natural Gas which is highly energy efficient and environment friendly input. NFL is implementing various energy saving schemes at Vijaipur Unit. By these Energy Saving Schemes at Vijaipur unit, NFL will be able to reduce CO2 emission of around 216 Te/day. Similarly NFL is also working towards bringing down energy consumption of its plants at Panipat and Bathinda by revamping of urea Plants.

Further to promote ecologically sustainable growth by utilizing cleaner fuel i.e. natural gas for power generation at its units at Nangal, Bathinda and Panipat which are presently using coal for power generation, NFL is installing GTG (Gas Turbo Generator) along with HRSG (Heat Recovery Steam Generation Units) at these units for reducing the energy consumption and CO2 emission of Plants. After commissioning of these GTGs at Nangal, Bathinda and Panipat, total CO2 emission reduction of these three units will be around 1152 Te/day.

Besides this, NFL has also been undertaking various sustainable development programs including Afforestation, Use of Solar Energy, Water Conservation, Sale of fly ash to cement companies, Recovery of CO2 from flue gas at Vijaipur Unit which in turn has resulted Green House emissions equivalent to 450 Te/day of CO2.

NFL is among the first few companies which has commercially launched Neem Coated Urea in the market which is an eco-friendly product and improves yield of the crops. Appeal is being made to all the concerned at NFL from time to time at various forums to save energy and make efforts to reduce the consumption of inputs in their respective area of functioning.

As a small effort towards saving on paper consumption, NFL is in the process of implementing ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software connecting all units and corporate office. This is a step towards paperless working and will reduce significant paper consumption. Further all the Units & Offices at NFL have been requested to encourage printing on both the sides of the paper using duplex printers and even in case of non-duplex printers, Users have been requested to inculcate habit of printing on the both the sides of the paper using smaller fonts so that consumption of the paper could be curtailed across the company. Increased use of E-Mails has also been advised to reduce consumption of Paper and other consumables.

The company has undertaken various environment development programs such as water conservation through rainwater harvesting, stop dams, sedimentation tanks and also planted thousands of trees in adopted villages. Company is also promoting non-conventional energy sources to reduce the carbon foot prints.
.

Water Conservation

  • Facilities for roof top rainwater harvesting
  • Increasing height of best bear of irrigation ponds
  • Rejuvenation and improvement of existing water bodies
  • Construction of sedimentation tanks




Construction of Stop Dams

  • It has improved water availability around the year for farmers as well as for animals.
  • Crop production has increased which has resulted in greater returns to farmers. In long run it will help in curbing migration from villages
  • Double cropping and vegetable production has started

Social Forestry

  • Afforestation has been adopted in all the Units to improve the environment surrounding the Units. A total of about 20,000 tree saplings were planted in and around various Units leaving a cleaner and greener earth for future generation
  • The cumulative plantation since commencement is about 8 lakhs for all the units

Promoting Non-Conventional Energy Sources

  • Company is also promoting non-conventional energy sources to reduce the carbon foot prints and installed solar lights in the villages and its maintenance and monitoring is being done through participation of village community
