India: UltraTech Cement has received approval from the environment ministry for a US$360m project in Andhra Pradesh, in which it will set up a 6Mt/yr integrated cement plant at Petnikote village in Kurnool district. The plant will have a 60MW captive power plant and a 15MW waste heat recovery-based power unit.

The company has already acquired 432 hectares of land for the project, which UltraTech says will generate employment for 900 people. The company still has to get 'consent to establish and operate' from the Andhra Pradesh Pollution Control Board.
