India’s JSW Cement Ltd plans to double its green cement capacity over next couple of years. At present, the company produces green cement at its Salboni unit in West Bengal to cater to the demand of the eastern region.

"The eastern markets in India are very important to JSW Cement’s growth story. Over the past year, we have implemented several initiatives to cater to requirements of all our customers, and the capacity expansion is testimony to our commitment to serving them better. The present market scenario for green cement gives us the confidence that our plans to scale up production capacity will enable us to meet customer needs for green cement in this region," said Nilesh Narwekar, CEO of JSW Cement.

The company is also reportedly close to commissioning its captive power plant at Salboni for uninterrupted power supply at competitive rates, according to The Asian Age.

"We want to strengthen our position as one of the leading green cement players in West Bengal, Orissa, Bihar and Jharkhand," said K Swaminathan, chief marketing officer.
