Speaking on the occasion, Dr Tapan Kumar Chand said that this breakthrough technology is an example of a sustainable solution that would cater to the people, planet and profit aspect of an industry in a balanced manner.
“Creating and providing a positive environmental impact in a proactive manner has always been the motto of NALCO,” he said.
