Environment Management at MCF

Environment, Health & Safety are given top priority in MCF. A green belt covering an area of about 50 acres area is developed and maintained. MCF has been certified for environmental management system conforming to ISO 14001 : 2004 standard and occupational health and safety management system conforming to OSHAS 18001 : 2007 standard by Det Norske Veritas, The Netherlands.

MCF has given top priority to its effluent treatment and disposal system right from the design stage of its plants.

At MCF the ammonium bi-carbonate, di-ammonium phosphate and sulphonated naphthalene formaldehyde plants are designed to have zero effluent discharge. In di-ammonium phosphate (DAP) plant a part of ammonia and urea bearing effluent from urea/ammonia plant is used as process condensate.

MCF has installed and commissioned urea hydrolyser stripper (UHS) at the cost of Rs.8.5 crores in 1990 and to treat ammonia and urea bearing effluents from ammonia and urea plants. The recovered ammonia and water are reused.

MCF has achieved the aim of reusing the entire treated wastewater and the target of zero wastewater discharge during 2010 by investing about Rs.7.0 crores. This is achieved by upgrading the effluent treatment system by the installation of lamella clarifier, ultra filtration and Reverse Osmosis (RO) technologies for the treatment of trade effluent and by upgrading the sewage treatment plant by "Membrane Bio-Reactor" (MBR) technology.

By the installation of urea hydrolyser stripper and wastewater treatment plants with latest technologies, about 3000 kilolitres per day of water is recovered which is about 30 % of our daily raw water consumption.
