Self-reliant approach of MISIL for Energy Consumption

Power Generation

Mughal steel has always readily adopted to energy management technologies as it is resolved to increase energy efficiency and maximize use of waste fuels, reducing emissions as well as reliance on purchased fuels. The comprehensive energy management plan has reduced powerhouse energy consumption by three to five percent and has helped MISIL to achieve its vision of becoming energy self-sufficient. In this regard, gas and electricity is being produced at Mughal industries. The company decided to go on captive power generation in 2005. The 20 MW captive power house in collaboration with GE Jenbacher was designed to be completed in two phases, of which the first phase started generating 9 MW power in 2006. The next phase was completed in 2007 with total investment of PKRs 630 million.

Coal Gasification

The production of steel is grossly dependent on large amount of coal feedstock that releases clouds of carbon dioxide emissions in the atmosphere. Clean coal technology is an efficient technology which reduces the emissions of Sulfur Dioxide and Nitrogen Dioxide resulting in plant efficiency. During 2014, MISIL met another milestone through the induction of clean coal technology. Mughal Steel is the pioneer in augmenting the utilization of coal gasification also known as the clean coal technology introduced in the industrial sector of Pakistan. The coal gasification not only yields efficiency in production and reduces the operating cost, but also accredits the company in fulfilling its strong commitment towards environmental sustainability. This has further strengthened the image of Mughal steel as an environmental sensitive company that operates in compliance to the international health and environmental standards which has encouraged the company to invest in the clean coal technology. Moreover, by adopting energy efficient measures, Mughal Steel has already stepped forward and extended its contribution in combating the global Carbon Dioxide emission levels.
