A publication titled “Energy Benchmarking for Cement Industry: Version 2.0” was released against the backdrop of the 11th Green Cementech 2015 conference jointly organised by the Confederation of Indian Industry and the Cement Manufacturer’s Association on 14-15 May, 2015 at Hyderabad.
The Indian Cement Industry is a trendsetter in the world of cement and is consistent in adopting the latest technologies for energy conservation. Though the levels of energy efficiency in some Indian plants are amongst the best in the world, there is still scope for improvement in the area, provided the continued use of energy efficient technologies and practices in new and old plants.
This publication is a compilation of some of the best section - wise specific energy consumption figures observed in Indian Cement Plants along with the best practices implemented by them.
With consideration for the response received from the Cement Industry and the industry’s persistent efforts in energy conservation, this manual in its second edition remains updated with new benchmarking figures.
