UltraTech Cement, Coolbrook Sign Agreement To Decarbonise Cement Production


UltraTech Cement, Coolbrook Sign Agreement To Decarbonise Cement Production

UltraTech Cement, India’s largest cement and readymix concrete (RMC)company and Coolbrook, a transformational technology and engineering company, will jointly develop a project to implement Coolbrook’s Roto Dynamic Heater (RDH) technology in one of UltraTech’s cement manufacturing units, according to the media release.

The company said in the statement that UltraTech will be among the first industrial players to use Coolbrook’s technology for the decarbonisation of the cement manufacturing process.

The RDH technology uses electrification from renewable sources for the heating processes in cement production. It removes the need to use fossil fuels, thus helping to accelerate the decarbonisation of cement manufacturing.

This project is a part of UltraTech’s efforts to leverage cutting-edge technology solutions to accelerate the decarbonisation of its operations in line with its 2050 net zero commitment.

The successful implementation of the RDH technology is expected to reduce the use of coal-based thermal energy in cement production processes. under the project, Coolbrook’s RDH technology is initially for replacing the use of fossil-fuel-based energy in the drying of alternative fuels and the learnings from the project will be used to scale it up for deployment in the use of cement production processes.

UltraTech signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Coolbrook in June 2022 to jointly explore the use of RotoDynamic Heater technology to electrify the cement manufacturing process. Coolbrook and UltraTech are now extending their cooperation following the successful large-scale pilot of an RDH unit at the Brightlands Chemelot Campus in the Netherlands.

KC Jhanwar, Managing Director, UltraTech Cement said, “We are committed to the sectoral aspiration of delivering net zero concrete by 2050. Towards this end, we continuously strive to innovate at every stage of the whole life of the concrete. Coolbrook’s RDH technology represents an exciting technological pathway that we believe has the potential to exponentially accelerate our progress towards full decarbonisation. Every megawatt of clean energy we add to our mix makes a big difference.”

Joonas Rauramo, CEO of Coolbrook said, “The deployment of RDH units at an UltraTech cement plant will be a ground-breaking demonstration of the power of RDH technology and clean energy. Burning fossil fuels will no longer be necessary for cement production.”
