Y B News Jammu, Apr 07 Vedanta Aluminium & Power Business, India’s largest producer of the aluminium and its value-added products, is fostering hundreds of MSMEs in remote rural areas with its innovative ‘waste to wealth’ programmes. Waste to wealth projects form a key pillar of Vedanta’s sustainability agenda that is centred around ‘Zero Harm, Zero Waste and Zero Discharge’. With a worldclass alumina refinery at Lanjigarh (Odisha) and state-of-the-art aluminium smelters at Jharsuguda (Odisha) and Korba (Chhattisgarh), the company has been instrumental in triggering socio-economic development in some of the country’s aspirational districts. One such innovative programme being run by Vedanta for fostering local micro-enterprises is fly-ash brick making. The company supports over a hundred brick manufacturing MSMEs situated around and beyond its areas of operations with fly ash free of cost to their doorsteps, amounting to nearly 5 lakh metric tonnes per annum. In addition, the company also provides know-how and training on manufacturing these bricks in partnership with technical institutes, thus creating employment avenues as well as promoting circular economy.
