Ramco Cements has been demonstrating a robust pursuit of environmental sustainability, with 71% of the power for its clinker production consumed through green energy.

According to a statement, the company is ahead of the industry by using green energy in clinker production.

A Waste Heat Recovery System (WHRS) captures the waste heat available from the preheater exhaust gas and the clinker cooler, exhaust gas of cement kilns and the heat is used to generate electrical energy. Waste heat recovery plants (WHRP) are an environment-friendly source of power.

The company has invested in the WHRS for power generation in all three lines of its Jayanthipuram Plant. The Phase-I of the WHRP of 9 MW capacity was commissioned in September 2020 and is producing at its maximum capacity. Phase-II was commissioned last year in February. The last leg of the preheater was commissioned this year in April. The WHRS has been fully commissioned in Jayanthipuram with a 27 MW capacity.

The company is also set to commission its 5th integrated cement plant at Kolomigundla, Kurnool District, Andhra Pradesh, with 12.15 MW of WHRS. The total capacity of the WHRS will increase to 39.15 MW.

According to a statement, along with wind energy, Ramco Cements will fulfil 71% of the power required for the total clinker production through green energy.

It added that the company would utilise green energy for clinker production.

Apart from reducing the power cost, the investment in waste heat recovery plants shows its commitment to environmental, social and governance initiatives.
