PPGCL inks MoU with ZaaK for upcycling ash to sustainable sand material

Prayagraj Power Generation Company Limited (PPGCL) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with ZaaK Technologies GmbH (ZaaK) to jointly establish India’s first Lypors pilot manufacturing plant at PPGCL.

Lypors is a sustainable sand material manufactured through a patented process by upcycling a wide range of mineral wastes, including fly ash, pond ash, old-deposited ash, bauxite residue and is used to produce lightweight concrete, mortar, plaster, and other building products. This partnership is expected to create a whole new industry of sustainable construction material by reducing the consumption of precious natural sand resources. It will enable PPGCL to move rapidly towards its goal of adopting sustainable practices in thermal power generation. The technology will enable the country to manage the gainful utilisation of fly ash.The partnership is in alignment with the Ministry of Environment Forest and Climate Change’s draft notification, mandating 100 per cent ash utilisation.
