The Indian fertilizer industry is one of the most important industrial sectors for the country. Even the Prime Minister has referred to it recently in his monthly radio broadcasts to the nation.Today, this industry stands at a crossroads. While a question-mark has arisen over the very future of nitrogenous fertilizers, the industry grapples with issues of water usage and pollution, though it does have an enviable record in energy efficiency.
Centre for Science and Environment’s Green Rating Project (GRP) has analysed and rated the fertilizer industry for its environmental compliance. Out of 32 functional fertilizer units in the country, CSE has analysed and rated 28.
We invite you to the release of this rating report.
