NTPC Kahalgaon Builds Bihar First Cement free Geo-polymer Road

NTPC Kahalgaon Builds Bihar First Cement free Geo-polymer Road

Shri Ajay Sharma, Head of Project at NTPC Kahalgaon, inaugurated a pioneering Geopolymer Road on World Environment Day. This innovative project is the first of its kind in Bihar, constructed entirely without cement.

The Geopolymer Road, spanning 2.9 kilometers, marks a milestone for NTPC Kahalgaon. It utilizes 2000 MT of fly ash, a byproduct of power plants, and Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slags (GGBS) from steel plants, combined with chemicals like Sodium Hydroxide and Sodium Silicate. This eco-friendly approach not only reduces greenhouse gas emissions but also promotes the effective utilization of industrial waste.

Complementing the road inauguration, NTPC Kahalgaon unveiled “The Statue of Green Innovation,” also built using geopolymer concrete. This initiative aims to raise awareness about the benefits of adopting eco-friendly construction materials.
