ERL has a strong commitment for maintaining clean, pollution free and healthy environment for its employees as well as the surrounding locations. It pursues the policy of good house-keeping and steady & safe operation of its various units and plants within design parameters.
Since long, ERL has discontinued the use of any toxic chemical for water treatment. It has proven incinerator system in operation for incinerating the obnoxious off-gases. All sorts of off-gases are released to atmosphere only in their final oxidized form.
ERL is also working on a program of monitoring hydrogen sulphide leakage. Use of Leaded chemicals (TEL TML) for augmenting octane rating of MS/HOBC has also been reduced from 1% to 0.5%. To its already existing well-designed oily water and rainy water separation system, ERL, of late, has put into operation, additional recovery systems similar to API separator system at the down-most end so that effluent water meets the safe limit of oil droplets carryover.
