Topic: Envision: A digital tool for integrating environmental activities of steelmaking
Abstract: ENVISION is a digital tool, which has been developed in-house, for integrating various environment management activities associated with an operating steel plant. This tool is designed in such a way that it collates real-time Environmental data from Environmental monitoring systems and Process Parameters from End of the Pipe Equipment for enabling instant corrective and preventive action. This tool also encompasses modules on Hazardous waste, Solid Wastes, Water Management and Incident Management and also helps in storing of all environment-related data in a central database. ENVISION keeps a vigilant eye on critical environmental activities, integrating diverse activities from monitoring to waste management to reporting, providing real-time data for on-time correction and collating and maintaining robust environmental data.
