Lloyd’s Metals and Energy Limited (LMEL) is set to mark a significant milestone in Gadchiroli with the commissioning of its Direct Reduced Iron (DRI) plant in Kondseri village, Chamorshi tehsil. This venture, slated to commence operations on August 15, signifies a pivotal moment for the district as it heralds the arrival of the first major industrial unit.

  • The DRI plant, strategically located in the Naxalite-infested Gadchiroli district, underscores LMEL’s commitment to regional development and economic empowerment.

  • LMEL’s pioneering initiative not only contributes to economic growth but also establishes the company as a trailblazer in the mining sector, with plans for expansion already underway.
  • The Maharashtra Pollution Control Board has scheduled a public hearing on July 7 to grant environmental clearance for the project, ensuring transparency and community participation in the decision-making process.

Community Engagement and CSR:

  • LMEL’s holistic approach extends beyond industrial development, with a strong emphasis on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives.
  • Efforts include the establishment of essential infrastructure such as hospitals, schools, and skill development centers, reflecting LMEL’s commitment to enhancing the quality of life for local residents.
