ACC and Ambuja Cements, both cement and building material companies within the diverse Adani Group, have unveiled two innovative facilities, marking a significant advancement in sustainable waste management. These facilities, the Ambuja Marwar Pre-processing and Co-processing Facility and the ACC Jamul Co-processing Facility, are poised for imminent operation.

The Ambuja Marwar Pre-processing and Co-processing Facility stands out with its capacity to convert 220,000 tons of waste into alternative fuels, thereby enhancing sustainable waste management in the region and elevating the plant’s Thermal Substitution Rate (TSR) to an impressive 15%. A notable aspect of this initiative is the collaboration with the Ambuja Marwar Farmer Producer Organization (FPO), which will supply 50,000 tons of agro-waste, offering an alternative livelihood for local communities while co-processing it as an alternative fuel in the cement kiln.

Simultaneously, the ACC Jamul Co-processing Facility will enable the co-processing of an additional 120,000 tons of alternative fuel, further raising the plant’s TSR to an impressive 10%. Co-processing waste in the cement kiln not only retrieves energy but also recycles minerals inherent in waste, leading to natural resource conservation and a significant reduction in CO2 emissions.

Geoclean, an integral part of the Adani Group’s Cement Business, leads the charge in providing sustainable waste management solutions to municipal, agricultural, and industrial sectors. Leveraging state-of-the-art technology, Geoclean adeptly co-processes waste from these sectors, leaving no residue behind and contributing to a regenerative circular economy.

With the integration of these new facilities, Geoclean will manage a total of 7 preprocessing units and 13 co-processing units with enhanced capacities. This strategic expansion perfectly aligns with their roadmap to achieve an impressive 25% TSR by 2027-28, solidifying their position as industry leaders in sustainable waste management.

Mr. Ajay Kapur, CEO of the Cement Business, emphasized the importance of sustainable waste management, stating, “We are not just building structures; we are shaping a sustainable future. These facilities underscore our unwavering commitment to responsible waste management and environmental stewardship. Through innovation and collaboration, we aim to set new industry benchmarks, working towards a world where progress and preservation go hand-in-hand.”

The introduction of these facilities marks a significant stride forward in sustainable waste management, reflecting a steadfast dedication to actively contribute to environmental betterment and create a greener, more sustainable world for present and future generations.
