NG Conversion Project

Compliance to Environmental Clearance issued by Government of India Ministry of Environment and Forests vide letter F.No. J-11011/34/2010-IA II (I) Dated 6th February, 2013 for Conversion of Feed Stock and Fuel to NG/RLNG in the Fertilizer Plant, at Panambur, Mangalore, Dakshina Kannada, Karnataka by M/s Mangalore Chemicals and Fertilizers Ltd.
Sl.No. Conditions in the Environmental clearance letter Compliance
i. All the conditions stipulated in environmental clearance No. J-11011/105/2007-1A (II) dated 18th July, 2007, No.J-11011/133/2009-IA (I) dated 3rd June, 2009 and SEIAA:8:IND:2009 dated 30th July, 2009 accorded for the existing projects shall be implemented Complied.
ii. The gaseous emissions (SO2, NOx, NH3, HC and Urea dust) and particulate matter from various process units shall conform to the norms prescribed by the CPCB/SPCB from time to time. At no time, the emission levels shall go beyond the prescribed standards. In the event of failure of any pollution control system adopted by the unit, the respective units shall not be restarted until the control measures are rectified to achieve the desired efficiency. Stack emissions shall be monitored regularly. We have noted the condition.
iii. In Urea Plant, particulate emissions shall not exceed 150 mg/Nm3. Monitoring of Prilling Tower shall be carried out as per CPCB guidelines We have noted the condition.
iv. Ambient air quality data shall be collected as per NAAQS standards notified by the Ministry vid G.S.R. No. 826(E) dated 16th November, 2009. The levels of PM10 (Urea dust), SO2, NOx, Ammonia, Ozone, CO and HC shall be monitored in the ambient air and displayed at a convenient location near the main gate of the company and at important public places. The company shall upload the results of monitored data on its website and shall update the same periodically. It shall simultaneously be sent to the Regional office of MOEF, the respective Zonal office of CPCB and the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) Ambient air quality monitoring stations have been set up and the Ambient air quality is being monitored regularly for Ammonia, PM10, PM2.5, SO2, NOx, CO, Fluorine and Hydrocarbon as per the NAAQ standards. Data of ambient air quality data have been displayed near the main gate of the company. Ambient air quality data is being uploaded on Companys website and hard copy is being submitted to Karnataka State Pollution Control Board every month. Ambient air quality report for the period October 2015 to March 2016 is attached. Annexure I
v. Industrial wastewater shall be treated in the ETP. As proposed, Urea plant process condensate shall be treated in a deep hydrolyser followed by stripping. Ammonia plant process condensate (APC) shall be stripped with steam. Treated condensate shall be recycled/reused in the process. Utilities wastewater shall be treated in the ETP and treated effluent shall be recycled/reused. Treated effluent shall also be monitored for the parameters namely ammonical nitrogen, Nitrate, Fluoride, pH etc. As proposed, no effluent shall be discharged outside the factory premises and zero discharge concept shall be adopted. Sewage shall be treated in STP and treated water shall be recycled/reused within factory premises to achieve zero discharge except rainy season. The liquid effluent from Ammonia and Urea plants are treated in Process Condensate Stripper and deep Hydrolyser respectively. The treated effluent is reused. The treated effluent is regularly monitored for the parameters Ammonical nitrogen, Nitrate, Fluoride, pH etc. The wastewater from water treatment plant is treated in the wastewater recovery plant with RO, Ultra-filtration, Lamella Clarifier etc. The treated wastewater is being reused. The sewage effluent is treated in the upgraded Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) by adapting Membrane Bio-Reactor technology. The treated wastewater is reused.
vi. All the effluents after treatment shall be routed to a properly lined guard pond for equalization and final control. In the guard pond, automatic monitoring system for flow and relevant pollutants (i.e. pH, ammonical nitrogen, nitrate nitrogen etc.) shall be provided with high level alarm system. All the effluent streams after treatment are reused in cooling tower as makeup.
vii. The company shall obtain Authorization for collection, storage and disposal of hazardous waste under the Hazardous Waste (Management, Handling and Trans-Boundary Movement) Rules, 2008 and amended as on date for management of Hazardous wastes. Measures shall be taken for firefighting facilities in case of emergency. We have obtained authorization issued by the KSPCB under Hazardous Waste (Management, Handling and Transboundary Movement) Rules, 2008. Fire hydrant system as per Tariff Advisory Committee (TAC) stipulation and fire tender and fire extinguisher facilities are available for firefighting in case of emergency.
viii. Spent catalysts and used oil shall be sold to authorized recyclers/re-processors only We have noted the condition.
ix. The company shall strictly comply with the rules and guidelines under Manufacture Storage and Import of Hazardous Chemicals (MSIHC) Rules, 1989 as amended time to time. All Transportation of Hazardous Chemicals shall be as per the Motor Vehicle Act (MVA), 1989. We have noted the condition.
