                        Efforts will be made to add value to the above mentioned resources of the State located in various industrial areas and fully exploit the potential of respective areas so that the spread of industries and economic activities take place uniformly throughout the State without any regional imbalance.

19.2    Large amount of iron ore fines / dust from captive and other operating mine has been accumulated over the years. This may increase further in course of time with the economic activities picking up in the area. State Government will promote pelletisation of these fines for further value addition within the State. Department of Mines will facilitate linkage of these fines with pelletisation units.

19.3    (a)  In order to promote better environment, management practices and clean technology. State Government will promote setting up of cement plant near integrated steel plant and power plant or using slag and fly ash.

            (b)  Mega steel and power units may take initiative to promote use of these materials by providing long term assured contract for supply to cement and brick unit.

            (c)  MSME may use fly ash for making fly ash bricks.

19.4    Industries will be encouraged to secure better waste management through innovative technology for pollution prevention and abatement.

19.5    Enhancement of revenue through carbon credit mechanism is proposed to be encouraged. A nodal agency will be identified for promotion of carbon credit trading that will provide technical, financial and institutional support to interested companies.
