According to reports, Hutti Gold Mines is making its own contribution for ‘green earth’ through harnessing renewable energies.
A 1,000-litre capacity bio-diesel plant has been set up at the production centre to blend bio-diesel with diesel.
HGML managing director A.K. Monnappa, who is also the Managing Director of Karnataka Biofuel Development Board, said HGML uses nearly 50,000 litres of diesel a month for its production needs. The bio-diesel produced is blended with the fossil fuel to save energy, he added.
