about the event
The Indian Cement Industry is the second largest cement producer in the world. It accounts for more than 8% of the global installed capacity. India is the house for 250 large cement plants accounting for an installed cement capacity of more than 550 MTPA and the production of around 300 MTPA cement.
With the increased infrastructure developments in the country and increasing demand from the real estate sector, there is a positive growth projection for the cement production in the country. This rapid growth rate requires an innovative approach by the industry toward optimal resource utilization, lower emissions, and stringent discharge standards.
The Indian Cement Industry is globally recognized as one of the most energy and resource-efficient industries. The Indian cement industry has already taken a proactive approach through increased usage of alternative fuels in the cement kilns and utilization of WHR, resulting in reduced emissions and production costs. With prudent resource usage businesses not only gain a competitive edge but also turn out to be ecologically sustainable business models.
In the efforts to prepare the sector for a Net Zero Carbon Future, CII - Sohrabji Godrej Green Business Centre (CII - Godrej GBC) with the support of all the stakeholders has been organizing Green Cementech, annual conference for cement sector for the past 19 years, which has evoked excellent response from all the participants & stakeholders.
In line with this series, CII - Godrej GBC is organizing the 20th edition of Green Cementech on 23 & 24 May 2024, at Hyderabad with the theme - Preparing for a Net Zero Carbon Future.
