Indian cement cos emit less CO2
Most cement plants in India consume less energy and emit less CO2 than their European and American counterparts as they use the latest technology, according to the Cement Sustainability Initiative (CSI).
CSI members produce 66 per cent of the world´s cement and 60 per cent in India. The distinction between Indian firms from those in the US and Europe is technology. Indian companies use the latest technology since many of the cement plants are relatively new.
According to Philippe Fonta, Managing Director, CSI, Indian companies could improve if they lay more emphasis on alternative fuels and energy and make use of municipal waste.
