- Ametha project to add ~5 MTPA capacity progressing as per schedule; Integrated unit to be commissioned in Q4 2022

The cost reduction journey will be further accelerated with the commissioning of waste heat recovery projects in Jamul, Kymore and Ametha plants taking the share of green power to 15 per cent.

Sustainability continues to be one of our key focus areas. ACC is committed to making a tangible difference in the areas of carbon footprint reduction, protection of natural resources, and enabling progress and welfare of our communities through our various initiatives. I am pleased to inform that our '#ChangeTheStory' campaign, which seeks to free our water bodies of plastic waste, has been widely appreciated at multiple forums.
I am confident that with all the projects that are underway, we will continue to deliver strongly on all our strategic priorities," said Sridhar Balakrishnan, Managing Director and CEO.
