ACC strategy to cut coal use

July 2013
Telegraph (Calcutta, India);7/13/2013, p1
The article reports that the Indian cement producer ACC Ltd. is looking to reduce its fossil fuel consumption by 5 percent by 2015 to lower carbon emission. It states that the company is gradually substituting its fossil fuel consumption with alternative energy sources such as biomasss and industrial waste to manage cost and improve quality. It mentions that the company is trying to use more clean fuel that has lower carbon emission and low ash content.
