Runaya Refining To Deploy First Of Its Kind Green Technology For Its Odisha Plant

Runaya Refining, a metals start-up floated by Naivedya and Annanya Agarwal, sons of Vedanta Ltd’s executive chairman Navin Agarwal, said it will deploy South East Asia’s first of its kind green technology in Odisha.

Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik laid the foundation stone for the project in the presence of Annanya Agarwal, chief executive officer (CEO), Runaya Refining and Abhijit Pati, CEO, Vedanta Ltd (Jharsuguda). The project is an end-to-end green solution for the recovery of aluminium and processing residual waste from aluminium smelters.

Runaya Refining is a sustainability solutions company with operations based on its licensed proprietary patented technology. It uses a technology which is in line with its vision for Green Projects and is based on zero waste and zero discharge. Runaya has the capacity to process 30,000 tonnes per annum of aluminium dross into value-added products.

The project will address one of the biggest challenges that the aluminium industry faces today, relating to the handling, evacuation and disposal of dross in an environmentally friendly manner. This aluminium dross processing facility is expected to give rise to a multi-level aluminium industry ecosystem which would further bolster the potential of aluminium ancillary industries in western Odisha.

“We are thankful to the chief minister Naveen Patnaik and the people of Odisha, for their support. We have worked passionately to bring a ‘Green’ eco-friendly technology to India and we hope that this pioneering step would set a trend for developing similar sustainable projects in the country”, said Annanya Agarwal.
