UltraTech to be supplied with alternative fuel
05 February 2018

The Tiruchi City Municipal Corporation (TCMC) has set an agreement with an environmental organisation to supply alternative fuel (AF) processed from fresh dry waste to UltraTech’s Ariyalur facility.

While preventing a build-up of waste in its dump, the corporation’s project will also generate 12,000t of AF over the next two years, according to The Times of India. TCMC has contracted IL&FS Environmental Infrastructure & Services Ltd to segregate the waste. Only waste having a calorific value higher than 3500kJ/kg will be sent as an AF in the production process.

"For two years from January 31, 2018, till January 31, 2020, fresh waste entering the dump yard will be reused to the maximum possible extent either in compost making process or for being used alternate fuel in Ariyalur cement plant," said a senior TCMC official.
