NTPC Mouda, being one of the largest power plants in Maharashtra is not only efficiently generating power but fulfilling its responsibility towards the environment.
It has successfully maintained lush green belts in its periphery hence contributing to the wellness of the
environment. Since its inception, NTPC Mouda has planted a total of 27 lakh trees under it’s afforestation scheme. This year, on World Environment Day, 350 saplings were sowed in the plant and township premises and 300 fruit-bearing saplings were distributed among employees.
NTPC Mouda also organized a session by a Senior faculty from NEERI, Nagpur for spreading awareness about this year’s theme “Ecosystem Restoration”.
Being a thermal power plant, ash utilization becomes of utmost importance.
To deal with the issue of ash, NTPC Mouda took the initiative of transporting 13782 Metric tonne of ash through railway wagons to Rajshree Cement Works (a unit of Ultratech Cement), Malkhed, Karnataka.
By doing this, NTPC Mouda is opening up new venues for ash transportation thus increasing its ash utilisation percentage which is already at an impressive figure of 128.76 %.
With the aim of recycling plastic waste generated in the plant, NTPC Mouda transported plastic and other non-biodegradable material for waste to energy generation.
The truckload of this waste material was dispatched to Ultratech Cement Plant of the Chandrapur district.
Plastic bottle shredders have also been installed in the Township Shopping Complex for eliminating plastic to the maximum extent which is then used for brick and mould making.
NTPC Mouda has also signed an Agreement with Mouda Nagar Panchayat for managing Municipal Solid Waste generated from its township premises.
Under the above agreement Mouda Nagar Panchayat will collect the waste from public and residential buildings and dispose of it as per SWM Rule-2016. This step is being taken with an aim of conservation of
A bio-methanation plant of 1000 KG waste per day capacity has been established to utilize the organic waste generated from canteens and houses. Thus produced cooking gas is used daily in the canteens thereby decreasing the use of fossil fuels greatly.
