Concrete steps towards a low carbon footprint

The Hindu Business Line, 6 June 2018

The cement industry is setting new goals for energy efficiency. This is a high energy consumption industry that singularly accounts for 5 per cent of global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. During production of one tonne of material, it requires as much as 4.7 million BTU of energy, equivalent to about 180 kg of coal - a key reason why it needs to remain ever vigilant of its role in environment degradation.

Egged on by emission regulations, a substantial number of its 139 large cement plants and 365 mini cement plants have been trying to match global best practices. Major players have consciously taken to the ‘India Low Carbon Technology Road Map’ developed in association with International Energy Agency, WBCSD and CSI to be not only energy-efficient but also extremely competitive.
