HeidelbergCement India commissions plant for usage of alternate fuels

Mumbai, Jan 12 (UNI) HeidelbergCement India on Wednesday said it has commissioned a state-of-the-art facility in Damoh, Madhya Pradesh, to substitute part of the fossil fuels with alternate fuels (AF) in cement
"The recently commissioned AF receiving, storage and feeding system built at Narsingarh clinker unit with an investment of Rs 16 crore, will enable the company to achieve a thermal substitution rate (TSR) of approximately 5 per cent in the first phase and the same will be ramped up gradually to attain double digit TSR in the coming years," it said in a regulatory filing.
Aligned to the global vision of HeidelbergCement Group, this project will reduce its carbon footprint by reducing consumption of conventional fossil fuels and increasing usage of alternate fuels.
This milestone achievement will reduce the CO2 emissions by 42,000 tonnes per annum, the company said.
Commeting on the development, company's Managing Director, JN Cooper said, "Successful implementation of this project further reinforces HC India’s commitment towards sustainable development and a step to make our organization future ready so that we are able to meet environmental compliances as they get stringent in the years to come."
The company has set a target to reduce its specific net CO2 emissions to below 500 kg per tonne of cementitious material by 2030, which corresponds to a further decrease of more than 15 per cent compared with 2019.
