Udupi Power Corporation Limited (UPCL) plans to establish a cement blending unit at its plant in Udupi district to overcome fly ash problem leading to environmental threat in the agricultural fields and houses in the surrounding areas.

United News of India reports that the fly ash generated from UPCL was being transported to ACC for producing blended cement. However, a new, separate cement blending unit will be established in the vicinity of UPCL's power plant, J Krishna Palemar, Minister for Environment and Ecology, said.
