In a media release, Rajashekhar Pattanasetty, President, JSW Steel Vijayanagar Works, said that the demand for LMO had jumped manifold as a consequence of the current national health emergency.

“JSW Steel has so far supplied more than 11,500 tonnes of liquid medical oxygen from its Ballari plant in April. We have more than tripled supply at the JSW Vijayanagar plant from an average of 200 tonnes [a day] in early April to over 680 tonnes per day currently.
