Indian cement manufacturer Shree Cement is planning to establish a 3 million tpa cement grinding plant at Odapada, located in the Dhenkanal district, at a cost of around Rs.452.55 crore.

The project proposal stated that the proposed location near Managalpur village in Odapada would be ideal for the new facility as flyash generated from surrounding power plants, namely Bhushan Steel, GMR Kamalanga, Lanco Badbandh Power and Navabharat Ventures, could be utilised during the cement production process. If constructed, the plant would require approximately 60 acres of land; Odisha Industrial Infrastructure Development Corporation (Idco) has contacted the district administration to identify a suitable piece of government-owned or private land for the plant.

According to reports, Shree Cement has applied to the state’s investment promotion agency, Industrial Promotion and Investment Corporation of Odisha Ltd (Ipicol), to facilitate approval by the State Level Single Window Clearance Authority (SLSWCA). Ipicol reportedly consulted Idco before placing the proposal at the upcoming task force meeting for cement. The proposal would move to the SLSWCA once it is cleared by the task force.
