Cement is a binder thats used to produce concrete. There are various types of cement for use in different applications. The properties of cement can also be varied through additives. Find out more about how we make our cement.
We are constantly finding innovative ways to improve our cement production process to better deliver solutions and products. The reason is simple: we believe in creating value and addressing our clients needs in todays ever-changing business climate. Our goal is to be the industry leader in innovation and technology, and contribute to building livable urban landscapes.
Special emphasis is placed on Research & Development facilities to reduce thermal, electrical energy and overall CO2 emissions. Each division of Birla Shakti has a well-equipped, advanced R&D department to pursue product and process improvements related to that division, as well as monitor thermal and electrical energy efficiency. Each R&D department is staffed with around 20 highly qualified researchers.
Infrastructure, growth, discipline and integrity our business is built on these very essentials. As an ISO 9001, 14001, 18001 and 50001 company, we take care of the land and the community through the entire cycle of cement manufacturing use from mining to clinkerisation.
One of the main reasons for our tremendous success in the Indian market has been our reach across the nine highly industrialised states of Andhra Pradesh, Maharastra, Karnataka, Goa, Kerela, Madhya Pradesh, Telangana, Chattisgarh and Tamil Nadu.
Our dealer network in the trade segment comprises 2,000+ strong and loyal dealers across the territories. Most of these dealers have been associated with us for the last 35 years. This strong bond empowers us with the confidence and ability to grow further in this segment.
The key to sustaining economic growth lies in our belief, where we value our employees and their families, the environment we do business in, our esteemed customers, as well as the local communities we are surrounded by.

At Birla Shakti, we are constantly exploring new technologies and initiatives to conserve the environment we work and live in. Being a responsible managed firm, we aspire to exceed market expectations across all sustainability issues and go beyond legal compliance to proactively reduce our environmental impacts.
Our plant generates both hazardous and non-hazardous waste during the manufacturing of cement. Major waste include used oil, used battery, MS scrap, PP burst bags, alumina fire brick, overburden in mine, etc.
However, we make constant efforts to recycle and reuse the waste generated out of our own operations and waste generated by other industries like pharma. Only waste that cannot be utilised effectively is being disposed off.
In managing our waste output, we are also utilising waste generated in other industries as alternative fuel for our manufacturing plants. We have a tie-up with the government of Goa to procure waste which will be used as alternate fuel input.
Concurrently, we are the first in India to install Hot Disc technology to help utilise and manage waste. Presently, we recycle and reuse Plastic waste, Carbon black powder, PU and upper cutting waste, shredded tyres /rubber chips, Municipal solid waste.
Co-processing in cement kiln perforce provides high temperature and long residence condition during the operation and is an effective technology for the management of hazardous waste in an environmentally friendly and safe manner.
It fully absorbs the energy and material value of the waste without any harmful emissions. Co-processing in cement kiln ranks higher in the waste management hierarchy as compared to other disposal options such as incineration and landfill.
Unlike incineration and landfill, co- processing does not leave behind any residue that might have harmful impact on the environment. Thus, co-processing is an ecologically sustainable solution for waste management.
Fresh water is a scarce resource and its alarming depletion in Gulbarga and Basant Naagr has led to our increased focus on effective water management through conservation, reduction in leakage or wastage and recycling & reuse.
We strive to spread awareness on conserving water in our operations and families of employees, by implementing a number of water harvesting and recycling and reuse projects, so as to minimise the consumption of fresh water.
Furthermore, the sump developed in the mine pit is utilised for storage of rain water for later use in the process during lean period. The amount of rainwater collected depends on the rainfall, as well as the catchment area, where the water will be diverted to the mine pit (Sump).
For this purpose, garland drains are cut around the quarry on the higher profile of the land to channel rainwater from the catchment area. This water is then directed to the mine pit by opening the drain at desirable places. The mine sump has been developed to a capacity of 40,00,000 m3.
We meet almost all our water requirements from ground water sources. However, we have also implemented initiatives for replenishing ground water through our water harvesting structures built at various locations within the plant premises, as well as in the vicinity of the manufacturing facilities.
To create a sustainable environment for our business and the community, we have designated a green belt development site at our plants for afforestation. So far, a total of 14,91,807 samplings have been planted and harvested.
Currently, the total area for afforestation at our plants is 860 acres within the plant, mine and colony premises. Our efforts in driving environmental conservation projects such as this reinforce our philosophy of sustainable development and caring for the community.
Underpinning life at Company is the Division Vision our statement of the company culture, which both informs and describes our behaviour. Development activities revolve around the under-privileged community that lives in the immediate vicinity of our cement plants.
The range of our activities begins with extending educational and medical facilities and goes on to cover vocational guidance and supporting employment-oriented and income-generation projects like agriculture, animal husbandry, cottage industries by developing local skills, using local raw materials and helping create marketing outlets. These are the key areas that we endeavour to make a difference in.
Each factory has a medical centre with full-fledged doctors and the latest basic equipment. Mobile medical services are provided in the vicinity and regular medical camps are held to eradicate diseases, offer medical help, treatment and preventive care.
We foster learning and knowledge through formal schools. Education is imparted not only to children of employees but also to children from rural areas, who do not have access to any medium of information or education.
Our schools maintain high standards and are open to other children of the vicinity. These schools are often the preferred centres of learning in the district and adjoining areas. Our goal is to give everyone a chance at having an education.
We are encouraging the development of human capital by expanding human capabilities through skills development and vocational training, as well as by promoting excellence in indentified cultural fields.
