Tata Steel BSL (formerly Bhushan Steel) has launched a Miyawaki Plantation Project within its plant premises at Sarvoli, Khopoli in Maharashtra. Miyawaki is an afforestation technique developed by Japanese scientist Akira Miyawaki to grow dense plantations in a short time. Compared to the conventional method of afforestation, Miyawaki forest grows 10 times faster, is 100 times more biodiverse and covers 30 times greener surface area.

The process followed is 100% organic and is self-sustaining and requires no maintenance after 2 years. The new afforestation CSR project, launched with technical support of Enviro Creator Foundation, is spread over 2 acres of land with 25,000 trees belonging to 29 local tree varieties.
