Bestway Cement Limited, the second largest cement producer in Pakistan, recently inaugurated its state-of-the-art 15MW waste hat recovery power plant located at its Chakwal site.

Speaking at a ceremony held to mark the occasion, the Group Chief Executive Mr. Zameer Chaudhry remarked that this was yet another milestone in a long series of achievements by Bestway since its entry in Pakistan. Investment of more than PKR2.5bn to set up the plant in difficult economic times demonstrated Bestway’s unwavering commitment towards economic development of Pakistan while keeping environment protection its top priority.

Bestway’s Waste Heat Recovery Power Plant is the first of its kind in the cement industry of Pakistan. As Waste Heat Recovery Power Generation consumes no fuel, there is no greenhouse gas emission in the process. At the same time, the dust emission and temperature of discharged flue gas is further lowered thus having a positive impact on the environment. The Plant has enabled Bestway to significantly reduce its reliance on external source of power.

Bestway’s Waste Heat Recovery Project conforms to the CDM (Clean Development Mechanism) and has been successfully registered with UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) making Bestway the 1st in the cement industry and only the 9th company in Pakistan to have achieved this landmark.
