Indian cement company buys American solar technology

Indian cement maker goes solar with American tech.

Dalmai Cement, one of India's largest, is going to use American technology to harness solar power for a new cement plant. Making cement is an energy-intensive business. In the U.S. over 10% of all our energy goes into making building supplies like cement, glass, steel and roofing.

The technology is being supplied by Infinia, which I blogged about recently. Dalmai is also buying the necessary engines from Stirling Energy Systems which makes engines that turn heat into mechanical energy and thence into electricity.
