Chennai, Jun 29 (PTI): UltraTech Cement Ltd, the

flagship company of the Aditya Birla Group said its integrated

unit in Tamil Nadu -- Reddipalayam Cement Works -- has taken

up measures in which the fuel requirement was met through

utilisation of waste materials sourced from local municipal

corporations, the company said on Tuesday.

The company, in a statement said, it also successfully

reduced the carbon-dioxide emission by 2,250 tonne per annum

at the facility subsequently reducing pollution in Ariyalur

and Perambalur districts.

Reddipalayam Cement Works sources the municipal waste

from 11 local municipal corporations including Ariyalur,

Erode, Kumbakonam, Thanjavur, Perambalur and Karur.

The unit also sources plastic waste from cities such

as Chennai and Kozhikode.

UltraTech said it was working to reduce the

consumption of primary materials in its manufacturing process

through various innovations and recycling waste and by-

products from other industries for use as alternative

resources.

"This helps the company to lower its dependence on

fossil fuels and natural raw materials in cement manufacturing

as part of its long-term objective to decarbonise its

operations," the statement said.

During the last financial year, UltraTech replaced

17.2 per cent of its raw material requirement for cement

manufacturing and 3.7 per cent of its thermal energy needs

with alternative resources, the statement added.PTI VIJ SS
