Qatar Steel has installed one stationary AAQMS (Ambient Air Quality Monitoring Station) at Qatar Steel Dormitory which was shifted to QPSC Mesiaeed main office premises, and one mobile station inside the plant to monitor the air quality inside the QPSC premises. CEMS (Continuous Emission Monitoring System) were also installed in our stacks, to monitor the emission emitted from our operations. In addition, bag filters installed at the stack are replace regularly to ensure emission emitted in the stacks is filtered before it was emitted to air. Another imitative were conducted to control our dust pollution by covering the DR 17 and DR 18 conveyor house with galvanized iron sheet helps in reducing the quantity of emitted dust from the operation to the surrounded environment. There also other established plans for dust control which are under study and approval of the management.
Environmental Management Program
For CTOs compliance issued by Ministry of Municipality and Environment (MME), Qatar Steel has developed monitoring plan for point source air emission, noise level, ambient air quality, hazardous waste, ground water and by products and recycled materials within the area of operations. Wherein all reports and records are reviewed and monitored to determine the compliance on the environmental standard. If there are findings of deviation on parameters set by CTOs, mitigation and recommended controls are strictly implemented.
Quarterly environmental reports are also established to communicate to all concerned department within Qatar Steel, QP/MIC and MME. Managing our legal matters related to environment will ensure that all our environmental permits and licenses are updated, and environmental tools and equipment are calibrated on time. Procedures were developed, reviewed, revised, and circulated for effective implementation of environmental standard to address related aspects & the resulted impacts within Qatar Steel premises. Combined studies were done with QP/MIC for Air Shed Management, to develop modelling and assess the impacts of emission.
