CHAKWAL (Online) - Bestway Cement Limited, the 2nd largest cement producer in the country, has inaugurated its state-of-the-art 15 MW Waste Heat Recovery Power Plant located at its Chakwal site.
Speaking at a simple ceremony held to mark the occasion, Group Chief Executive Zameer Choudrey remarked that this is yet another milestone in the long series of achievements by Bestway since its entry in Pakistan. Investment of more than Rs 2.5 billion to set up the Waste Heat Recovery Power Plant in difficult economic times demonstrated Bestways unwavering commitment towards economic development of Pakistan.
The 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 havng a positive impact on the environment.
The Plant has enabled Bestway to significantly reduce its reliance on external source of power.
The Bestways 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.
