The collaboration will witness India Cements and Tvasta work together on research and development (R&D) and exchange of technology to create new raw material formulations used in 3D printing applications and present support for major projects to bring in price and time-effective, dwelling solutions.

The two companies told the media that the 3D method of construction employs 30% less water and sand, and the parties have already worked jointly on certain projects, including ones at Jaisalmer and Gandhinagar for the Indian Air Force (IAF) and an ongoing infrastructure project for a corporate entity in Mumbai.

On Wednesday, the memorandum of understanding (MoU) was inked by Rupa Gurunath, the whole-time director, India Cements, and Vidyashankar C, co-founder, and COO, Tvasta Manufacturing Solutions. The parties expect that the partnership makes way for more digitised and sustainable construction techniques and encourages the industry to adopt such practices.
