Background

The Duburi Steel power station is a captive power plant that supplies the Jindal Group with electricity and power for their steel-making facilities. THe plant began operating in 2007 with the commissioning of its first 125 MW unit. Another 125 MW unit was added and began operating in 2009. 60% of the plant's coal is domestic while 40% is imported. The estimated fly ash generation produced by the facility is around 900 tons per day; nearly 85% of the ash generated is taken either by fly ash brick manufacturers or used for land fillings, while the remaining 15% is dumped in ash ponds in the form of slurry and removed yearly for land fillings.[1]

In 2018, the power plant started supplying some of its energy to the nearby Tata steel plant.[2]
