The Lanjigarh alumina refinery is equipped with state of the art facilities which not only meet global benchmarks but also offer VAL a competitive edge in producing diverse products that cater to a wide variety of industrial segments. The plant is an ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified unit with an annual capacity of 1 mt. The refinery commands a high plant availability factor of 92% and is driven by self sustained power supply from the 75 MW captive power plant. Aided by modern infrastructure, the Lanjigarh refinery is well connected by rail, road and port. VAL has leveraged its superior technological competence to set up automatic vertical filters for liquor filtration, gas suspension calciners and automatic direct loading of alumina into railway wagons, bulkers and bags. The entire production process is harnessed by an advanced centrally controlled system.
Vedanta Aluminium Limited, (VAL), is also the first Mining & Metal Industry in the country to get accreditation for its Energy Management System for ISO 50001:2011 from the British Standards Institution, for efficiently managing the existing natural resources and mitigating the impact of climate change, at its Lanjigarh Unit in Orissa.
