Water management is an extremely challenging task for RCF, particularly at Trombay unit. RCF Trombay Unit is situated in the highly populated Mumbai City. In case of any shortage of water in the city especially during summers, supply of water from Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM) to industries like RCF is curtailed first.

In order to be self-reliant and as a responsible corporate, we endeavor to achieve highest levels of efficiency in water consumption. We have set up first-of-its-kind Sewage Treatment Plant at Trombay unit, which treats the city municipal sewage and the treated water is used to meet around 55% of our total water requirement at RCF, Trombay.

We are setting up another Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) at Trombay. This new STP will not only make Trombay unit self-dependent in terms of process water requirement, but also the surplus water will be supplied to adjacent factory of Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd. (BPCL). The design capacity of the proposed plant is to treat 22.75 Million Liters per Day (MLD) of Municipal Sewage to produce about 15 MLD of treated water.

STP is a unique example of meeting industrial water requirement through Sustainability Development Project

It is of great help to residents of Mumbai and society at large, as about 15 MLD of potable water which would have been supplied for industrial usage, is made available for the domestic use. RCF's unique initiative of treating raw sewage in STP has allowed MCGM to channelize distribution of more water to low-income group and slum areas, where more than 75% of the residents are considered as Water Deficient Households.

In a way RCF also helps MCGM in dealing with huge quantity of sewage generated in Mumbai City by treating 22.75 MLD of sewage at our Sewage Treatment Plant. This helps MCGM to save on account of cost of sewage treatment and sewage transportation.

When new STP becomes operational, it will indirectly make additional 15 MLD of water available to residents of Mumbai.

The new plant is likely to be commissioned by Feb. 2017
