MAHAGENCO strongly believes in conservation of natural resources through maximum recycling of resources. Towards this purpose, MAHAGENCO has ash water recovery systems, recycling of Effluent from ETP/STP etc.
In pursuit of this and to minimize the intake of fresh raw water from river/dams, MAHAGENCO has installed 130 MLD sewage water reuse & recycling project at Bhandewadi, which supplies treated sewage water of Nagpur city to Koradi supercritical Plant.
MAHAGENCO also intends to install similar project for other power stations. This may result into availability of more raw water for the nearby community for agricultural/domestic purpose. Zero water discharge is an ultimate target set for all Thermal power stations.
Rainwater Harvesting and artificial lake formations or Jalayukta Shivar are also practiced to support water criticality.
MAHAGENCO as part of its commitment to the greener and cleaner world, has planted Green belt all over available land in & around of all power stations premises. Tree plantation drive is regularly conducted at all power stations.
