The state government of Odisha, India, has approved a new cement grinding plant to be set up by Ambuja Cements. According to local media reports, the new plant will be built at Jharsuguda, an industrial hub in the north of Odisha, which is on the east coast of India.

The facility represents an investment of INR4.3 billion (around US$66.43 million) by Ambuja Cement, part of the LafargeHolcim group. It will be located on a 125-acre site and is expected to generate around 300 direct and indirect jobs.

Ambuja currently operates five integrated cement plants and eight grinding plants across India. Its production capacity currently stands at 29.65 million t, according to the company website.

The approval was one of three handed out by the state government, representing a total investment of INR11.88 billion (US$183.5 milion). In addition to Ambuja’s grinding plant, an expansion of an Emami Paper Mills manufacturing plant and the construction of biscuit manufacturing unit by Surya Food & Agro were also given the go ahead.
