Cement demand is highly correlated with the growth in GDP. Current prevailing economic conditions in the country are badly affected by poor governance and terrorist attacks. The industrial activities are suffering due to severe gas outage and power load shedding which is a bad omen for business and investment climate in the country. Increased inflation rates in every sector have set an alarming situation in the country which is likely to further aggravate due to dangling political posture.

Going forward, the rising cost of fuels like, furnace oil, diesel and coal in international markets is another serious threat to the economy of the country. Pakistan is passing through the worst phase and need of the hour is to take few stiff and long term decisions for the revival and stability of the economy on strong footings. Political stability, consistency of policies, and tight and stringent monetary controls could change the destiny of our country. Going forward immediate steps should be taken to overcome the energy crisis in the country. Country badly needs a few big water reservoirs to overcome water scarcity for agriculture and cheap power generation for smooth and efficient running of industrial activities. In addition large scale housing projects should be launched which will have many fold effects on the business activities in the country. All these steps will bring the economy back on track and our country could be a preferred place for investors both foreigners and local.


DGKCC recognized the need of having least expensive fuel alternatives due to increase in coal, fuel and furnace oil prices in last few years as well as increased competition, nationally and internationally. Increase in coal, fuel and furnace oil prices were overall impacting the price of cement. Keeping in view this situation, management of DGKCC initiated to make decision of investment in RDF, a modern technology that uses the municipal waste and other means to low cost fuel to produce energy. This project provides the fuel alternative to run the production operations smoothly as well as also enables to control the overall cost of the products.

The work on first phase of Refused Derived Fuel (RDF), alternative fuels, at Khairpur cement plant has been successfully completed and your company has started replacing imported coal with different alternative fuels, e.g. industrial and agricultural wastes, cotton sticks, corn cops, rice husk and rice powder, municipal waste etc.

After reviewing the encouraging results of RDF project at Khairpur cement plant your company has decided to implement the first phase of RDF at DG khan site and also started extension phase at Khairpur cement plant. The projects are expected to be completed in the current calendar year. This will result in savings on account of fuel costs.

Ongoing power shortage and rising tariff forced your company to start power generation from waste heat recovery at Khairpur cement plant. The project is expected to generate 8.5MW. Plant & machinery will be supplied by M/s. FL Smith Denmark. The project is expected to be completed in the first quarter of FY 2013. This project will reduce reliance on power purchase from WAPDA and bring down the cost of production.
