Needs innovative solutions in Cement industry to address challenges: KC Jhanwar

Hyderabad, May 17 (UNI) Ultra Tech Cement Limited Deputy Managing Director KC Jhanwar on Thursday underlined that, with growing demand, Indian cement industry has to identify innovative solutions to address challenges and set example for other sectors.
Addressing the delegates at the 14th CII-CMA Green Cementech 2018 here, Jhanwar said that cement sector has to play a critical role in achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) on climate change and sustainable production & consumption.
"Collaborative and multi stakeholder approach, adopting life cycle approach and reinventing will create win-win situation for all," he said.
ACC limited Chief Manufacturing Officer and Green Cementech Chairman Philip Mathew in his theme address highlighted that the cement sector has come a long way for achieving excellent specific energy consumption and added that the Indian cement industry over the last 20 years has reduced its electrical Specific Energy Consumption (SEC) by about 32 per cent and reduction in thermal SEC by 11 per cent.
Alternative Fuels and Raw Materials (AFR) Thermal Substitution rate increased from 0.6 per cent in 2010 to 4 per cent in 2016, he informed.
He also highlighted that the estimated Waste Heat Recovery (WHR) potential in Indian Cement Plants is about 800 MW. Tapping this potential would result in monetary benefits of Rs 1400 Crores and fuel saving of 2 million tonnes of coal and 12 to 15 per cent of power consumption of cement plant can be through WHR, he added.
Green Cementech Co-Chairman and ACC Limited Director (Energy and Environment) KN Rao highlighted the activities and initiatives of CII-Godrej GBC in promoting green businesses approaches and strategies in Indian industry.
