Tata Steel Bara Tertiary Treatment Plant has won the prestigious ‘Industrial Water Project of the Year 2019’ Award by the Global Water Intelligence. Dr. Mireille Rack, Life Cycle Assessment Specialist from Tata Steel Europe received the award on behalf of Tata Steel at an event held at Natural History Museum, London on Tuesday, April 9, 2019. The treatment plant project has been selected as the award winner for 2019 from amongst four international projects including one each from China and Malaysia and one more from India.

The 30,000 cubic meters a day (m3/d) tertiary-level treatment plant commissioned in 2018 has resulted in a 16% cut in the intake of fresh water from the Subarnarekha River. The award-winning tertiary-level treatment plant was built to reclaim effluent from the Bara wastewater treatment plant in Jamshedpur for reuse by Tata Steel. The plant, implemented by Tata Steel’s civil utility wing JUSCO (Jamshedpur Utilities and Services Company), will benefit Tata Steel and the adjoining industries in Jamshedpur.

The Ultra-Filtration treatment plant is part of Tata Steel’s ambition to make Jamshedpur the first zero liquid discharge city in India. Since the completion of the facility, the entire city’s collected sewage effluent, from both domestic and industrial sources, is gathered and reused by the city’s extensive industrial complex.

To improve city’s rate of collection of untreated industrial and domestic waste, JUSCO laid a 500-km sewer pipeline and built ten automated sewage pumping stations and control centres, thus transforming the sewerage service coverage for the city.
