SEATTLE (Scrap Monster): Tata Steel Mining Limited announced that it has decided to conduct water audits at five of its facilities in the state of Odisha, India. The exercise, carried out in partnership with New Delhi-based The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), is aimed at conserving water and ensuring efficient use of the resource.

As a first step, the company will deploy AquaGen at its Sukinda chromite mine in Jajpur and ferroalloy plant at Athagarh in Cuttack district.
