Material Management
L&T has instituted several resource-saving initiatives at its campuses. We promote the use of alternative materials such as fly ash and crushed sand in our Construction business. As most of our products are Engineered To Order (ETO), and most customer specifications insist on virgin material, the scope of using recycled material is limited. We continue to recycle Steel and Zinc in our operations.

Cement collectors improve air quality and health
At our power project sites, ground mounted cement collectors are used to collect cement, reduce pollution and improve air quality. Cement collectors are installed at batching plants to separate cement particles that flow out, using filtering elements made of fabric polyester. As the dusty air flows through the cement collector and the filter, it separates cement particles. The cement accumulated on the filter elements’ surface is periodically removed by reverse air jet cleaning system with compressed air. It facilitates cement collection, while moderating risk in maintenance, apart from being a cost-effective solution.
These centralised ground mounted cement collector units help protect workforce and society from exposure to cement particles, reducing associated health issues. It also helps recover cement, reduce wastage, and improve air quality.
We have installed ground mounted cement collectors at nine power project sites for 17 batching plants which collect, on an average, one percent of cement fed to the silos.
