With its green-agenda, CII makes an effort to help the planet to survive the next millennium.
The CII is organizing a conference on the set-up and development of environment-friendly methods of cement manufacture and waste disposal. The conference, called the Green Cementech 2005, will focus on waste recovery and disposal/utilization from the cement plants.
There will be lectures on the Waste Heat Recovery Systems used by cement manufacturers. Traditional methods of recovering heat from exhaust streams, which have not been very efficient, have undergone changes and technologies are now available to recover the heat from exhaust gas streams from preheater and clinker cooler, and generate electrical energy. More cement plants in India are expected to adopt such waste heat recovery systems, mainly to counteract the power shortage. As the electrical power generated from waste heat does not require combustion of any fossil fuel, such an attempt would enable the cement plants to significantly contribute in the reduction of green house gases.
The inaugural presentation will be given by the chairman of the conference, G Jayaraman. CPCB member Dr. Sen Gupta will also attend the sessions. Representatives from the Indian Cement Industry, and State Pollution Control Boards will also be taking part in the Cementech 2005.
