Sterlite resumes copper smelter ops... under green panel’s vigil

The Sterlite Copper Smelter unit, which was shut down over two months ago, has resumed operations after the National Green Tribunal's expert panel gave a green signal, officials said on Monday.

The panel members conducted its second phase of inspection on Sunday and checked if the pollution monitoring equipment at the unit was working properly.

Later they gave the green signal for the operation of the plant and the oxygen plant of the unit was started around 6 pm. Full-fledged working of the plant is expected to commence in a few days, maximum one week, when production would start, officials said.
Officials said the team inspected the plant ahead of production by the unit and it is expected to stay during the unit’s running to see if there is any impact on the environment.
