Adani Group to establish a cement factory in Jharkhand's Godda
Adani Group will set up a cement factory based on a sustainable solution model, along with its power plant project in Godda, Jharkhand.
The model of the factory will be based on a sustainable solution, and large quantities of fly ash will be mixed with limestone to make cement that will overcome all challenges, said the Adani Group.
The approval to factory set-up was given after a conversation between the Chairman of the Adani Group, Gautam Adani, and Member of Parliament Nishikant Dubey in Delhi. Dubey had raised concern over the massive amount of fly ash that accumulated during power generation earlier.
Dubey announced that approval has been given on his part, to establish a cement factory along with a power plant in Godda.
The new plant has a capacity of 1,600 MW and is based on super-critical technology. The region is expected to become a huge industrial center.
Jharkhand’s coal reserves are estimated at 83,151 million tonnes, whereas it accounts for 20-25% of the total steel production in India. In Jharkhand, 1,248 thousand tonnes of limestone were produced, with a total value of Rs 42.91 crore in 2018-19
