We are committed to finding sustainable alternatives to minimise consumption of non-renewable resources
  • Clean Energy: We have upgraded our Waste Heat Recovery Plant from 12 MW to 26.5 MW using the latest technology. The waste heat from the Kiln is being utilized to generate power, thereby reducing dust and gas emission to the environment and minimizing depletion of fossil fuels.
  • Sustainable Alternatives: We are working towards achieving hundred per cent alternate fuel resources in the clinker making process. Fuel is a primary cost and one of the most non-sustainable factors in the making of fuel. We have been focusing on identifying different sources for alternative fuels. In addition we are also using Spent Pot Lining, Copper slag, Medical & pharmaceutical wastes etc., materials that would have ended up in land-fills and caused soil and environmental pollution.
  • Water Conservation: Our manufacturing processes follow the principles of reduce-reuse-recycle and we ensure to minimise use of water which is a scarce resource, and we aim at becoming a water positive company.
