During the second wave of pandemic, the public and private sector steel plants together supplied 230262 tonnes of LMO between 1st April – 25th July, 2021. The plant-wise details in this regard are given in Annexure-I.

During peak of the second wave, steel sector had enhanced the LMO production considerably. As against 538 MT of LMO supplied on April 01, 2021, the supply of LMO peaked to 4749 MT on May 13, 2021. State-wise details of LMO supplied during April-July, 2021 are given in Annexure-II. Measures taken by the steel plants to increase production of LMO in the country included the following:-

 

(i)         Reduced production of liquid Nitrogen and Liquid Argon.

(ii)        Reduced usage of gaseous oxygen thereby reducing steel produced.

 

The enhanced production of LMO by reducing usage of gaseous oxygen led to reduced production of steel by about 500,000 tonnes during the period April-June, 2021.

The LMO produced in steel plants were supplied to 22 states/UTs as indicated in Annexure-II utilizing transportation modes of road, Oxygen express (Railways) and transport aircrafts of the Air Force.
