Ministry of Steel says a total of four thousand 686 tonnes of life-saving Liquid Medical Oxygen, supplied by steel plants so far

The Ministry of Steel has said that a total of four thousand 686 tonnes of life-saving Liquid Medical Oxygen, LMO have been supplied by steel plants so far. The Ministry said, the steel fraternity stands united in the service of the nation in this time of crisis. The total production of Liquid Medical Oxygen in the country has risen to almost nine thousand 500 tonnes per day, showing the capacity utilization of about 130 per cent of the installed capacity. It said, Steel plants are contributing nearly half of the national production of LMO. Steel plants are able to enhance the supply of LMO by reducing  the production of Nitrogen and Argon and  producing only LMO in most plants.

Union Minister of Steel Dharmendra Pradhan held a meeting with officials on  Monday, where he reviewed the supply of liquid medical oxygen and the efforts  by the steel plants to  augment health care infrastructure. The Ministry said, hospitals with 8,100 beds are being set up by Steel Plants in the  vicinity of plants with gaseous oxygen.
