cemWHR - 2022

2 Day Residential Conference + Awards
23 - 24 June 2022, Goa


The Indian cement industry is keen to adopt WHRB systems in a big way. The technical specialization within the Indian cement industry is advanced; the plant operating team can overcome the technical barriers analyzed. The major deterrent in faster adoption of WHRB systems has been the financial barrier. The potential for WHRB in Indian cement industry is very high.

With its objective to promote WHRB installations in India, Mission Energy Foundation brings out its 3rd annual cemWHR – 2022 a two day residential conference + Awards; scheduled on 23 - 24 June 2022 at Country Inn & Suites - GOA


Organised with its objective to promote Waste Heat Recovery Boiler implementation in the Indian Cement industry. It shall encourage utilities that utilises the waste heat available to generate power and thereby reducing operating cost. Bring awareness among industry on suitable technologies may be considered for implementation of WHRB in existing and future cement plants.

all inclusive ACCOMODATION

This year cemWHR 2022 shall be residential conferece with all inclusive 2 Nights complimentaty stay (Twin Sharing Basis) at the five star facility Country Inn & Suites - GOA. The best experience for Learing with Leasure & a host of networking lunches and cocktail dinner....


Over the years Mission Energy Foundation have honoured hundreds of innovative developments and solutions for excellence and sustainability among the utilities, small or large, who have demonstrated their efforts in generation of clean energy.

Supported By


Indian cement industry is the second largest manufacturer of cement, only next to China. Cement capacity in the last 5 years has increased by over 30% and the projected growth rate in the next 5 years is about 20% increase from present levels of manufacture. Cement sector is one of the fastest growing industrial sectors in India.

Indian cement industry is very advanced as far as energy efficiency is concerned. Some of the Indian cement plants operate with very low energy consumption levels, which are the best in the world. Latest technology adoption and continuous improvement has been the predominant factors for such high energy efficiency levels in Indian cement industry.

While energy efficiency has taken a top priority in Indian cement industry, the adoption of WHR systems in cement facilities has still a long way to go. Out of over 210 large cement plants in the country, only 70% of cement kilns have adopted WHR systems. Mission Energy Foundation estimates indicate that the waste heat recovery potential in Indian cement industry is close to 750 MW, indicating the huge opportunity for adoption of WHR in Indian cement industry.

Almost all the cement manufacturers in the country have captive power plants to meet their power demand. The reason for captive power generation is to lower the cost of power generation. Installing captive power plants would cost the cement manufacturers about Rs 40 Million per MW. On the other hand, installing WHR systems is costing the manufacturers about Rs 70 Million to Rs 80 Million per MW depending on the type of technology adopted and the WHR potential. This high initial investment is deterring manufacturers from adopting waste heat recovery systems.

Huge potential exists across the Indian cement industry to recover the waste heat and generate power. Cement industry being energy intensive, tapping waste heat can be an excellent opportunity to reduce the overall operating cost. Increased global GHG emissions are forcing the industrial sectors to operate in an energy efficient and environment friendly way. Implementation of waste heat recovery can substantiate fossil fuels used for power generation which will ultimately reduce GHG emissions. 

Why WHRB Systems?



On an average, the Indian cement plant requires power of 9 Billion kWh per year. The coal needed for generating this much amount of power accounts to 15 Million Tons per year. To meet out the required coal quantity, the industry spends about Rs 55 Billion each year. In order to bring down the cost towards energy, several cost reduction techniques such as using of pet coke and low grade coal, optimization of Indian coal with imported coals are being practiced.

Waste heat recovery is now emerging as an excellent addition to existing captive power generation. Other than reducing energy cost significantly, it can also be a reliable source of power. The concept of waste heat recovery is slowly picking up across the country.



Reduces fuel consumption, which in turn reduces fuel cost significantly
Simultaneously meet the demand for electricity and heat in a most cost effective manner. It bring down the specific energy consumption of the plant significantly. WHRB is about best energy efficient practice in the plant & provide economic competitive advantage in the market. The system also mitigate the emission of Green house gases which are affecting the environment adversely.


Technical Barriers

Moisture content in raw material
Heat requirement for raw mill. Heat requirement for Cement Additives
Quality / Grade of heat. Presence of dust
Water Availability for waste heat recovery. Lay out constraint & down time for hook up

Available Technologies

Rankine Cycle
Organic Rankine Cycle
Kalina Cycle

Challenges Faced

Significant In house Engineering requirement. WHR - Vendor identification in India. Execution by in house contracts. Interfacing between OEC & WHR system. Location of unit to minimize distances – layout considerations.
Hook up during Plant shutdown

Barriers in Adopting WHRB

Presence of dust in flue gas
Hot gas availability & Load factor
Adaptability of existing equipment
False air ingress and additional power consumption
Non-availability of Indigenous suppliers & Service providers
Financial barriers
