Dalmia Cement Bharat Limited to build a green supply chain

With the deployment of its first fleet of LNG trucks, Dalmia Cement (Bharat) Limited (DCBL), a division of Dalmia Bharat Limited, is taking the first step towards creating a "green" supply chain. In order to carry out this initiative, DCBL has teamed up with GreenLine Logistics, the nation's first and only heavy trucking logistics company to run on LNG, and has placed an initial order for 35 trucks for its Chandrapur Plant in Maharashtra. An additional 25 trucks are slated to be deployed in Tamil Nadu in April.

By adding LNG and EV trucks, DCBL's green logistics plan seeks to decarbonize its transportation fleet, which contributes roughly 1.5% of the total CO2 equivalent emissions. Dalmia Cement wants to replace 10% of its present fleet of 3,000 vehicles with LNG trucks by the end of FY24.

For the company's maiden shipment, two different types of LNG trucks will be used to deliver raw materials and bagged cement over distances ranging from 50 to 600 km for inbound and outbound logistics: trailer and bulker trucks.

As comparison to traditional diesel trucks, GreenLine Logistics' LNG trucks cut CO2 emissions by about 28%, which translates into an annual reduction of about 24 tonnes of COz per truck.

These LNG trucks also considerably lower other harmful emissions, including SOx emissions by up to 100%, NOx emissions by up to 59%, and particulate matter emissions by up to 91%.

Dalmia Cement has a three-pronged approach to cut emissions, including switching to alternative fuels and raw materials, growing its overall renewable energy portfolio in Solar & WHRS path towards EV100, and introducing green vehicle deployment in logistics.

Dalmia is the first triple joiner firm of the Climate Group's EP 100, EV 100, and RE 100 projects and plans to be carbon negative by 2040. To encourage the widespread use of LNG-fueled long haul trucks, GreenLine Logistics has developed India's first and only integrated green logistics ecosystem.

This initiative intends to decarbonize heavy transportation in India.

Global Rare Earth Supply Chains Diversify Away from China

In response to the rising global demand for rare earths critical for producing everything from electric vehicles to wind turbines, supply chains are undergoing a significant realignment away from China. Historically dominant in rare earth production, China's recent policies and geopolitical tensions have prompted Western nations and other stakeholders to seek alternative sources and bolster local capabilities. Rare earth processing involves two essential stages: initial extraction and subsequent refining into individual oxide compounds used to manufacture magnets essential in various industri..

Coal India, US Firm to Explore Argentine Lithium

State-run Coal India Ltd is collaborating with a US company to explore lithium blocks in Argentina, a critical step in securing supplies of the essential battery material, according to an Indian source with direct knowledge of the matter. This initiative is part of India's participation in the US-led Minerals Security Partnership (MSP), which New Delhi joined last year to ensure a steady supply of minerals necessary to meet its zero-carbon objectives. As part of the MSP, India was invited to engage in 20-25 critical minerals projects, with four already identified by the Indian government. Indi..

India's Coal Consumption Set to Surge Amid Hydroelectricity Shortfall

Amid a significant drop in hydroelectricity production caused by inadequate rainfall, India is gearing up to increase its coal consumption to satisfy rising power demands, according to S&P Global Commodity Insights. This shortfall in hydroelectric power is anticipated to perpetuate India's reliance on coal imports. During the fiscal year 2023-24, India's coal production approached the 1 billion metric ton milestone, reflecting the government's strategy to lessen dependency on imported coal. Nonetheless, the country has already imported approximately 85 million metric tons of thermal coal in 20..
