Cement, an important construction ingredient, is a carbon-intensive industry. Limestone and other ingredients are heated to very high temperature to get clinker, generating expansive carbon footprint.

However, various processes have evolved over the years to reduce the carbon footprint of cement manufacturing process.

One way is to reduce clinker use by substituting it with slag, fly ash, and other cementitious-material that does not involve emission of CO2. Another way is to replace coal or any other fossil fuel with alternative fuel (AFR) resources like municipal waste, biomass, non-hazardous industrial and commercial waste.

Recovery of heat and its utilization, by employing the Waste Heat Recovery System (WHRS), to produce electricity is a good way of reducing carbon footprint.

Last, but not the least, use of renewable energy, like solar energy, is another way to produce electricity and reduce carbon foot print.

At Birla Corporation Limited, we are committed to minimizing our impact on the environment and are using all the above levers to reduce progressively the carbon footprint by utilizing green or renewable energy and use of AFR. We resolve to go decisively for green energy.
