In a significant move towards sustainable infrastructure, Shri Ajay Sharma, Head of Project at NTPC Kahalgaon, unveiled an innovative Geopolymer Road on World Environment Day. This groundbreaking project, the first of its kind in Bihar, was built entirely without the use of cement.

The Geopolymer Road, which stretches for 2.9 kilometers, is a notable achievement for NTPC Kahalgaon. It incorporates 2000 MT of fly ash, a byproduct of power generation, and Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slags (GGBS) from steel production, mixed with chemicals like Sodium Hydroxide and Sodium Silicate. This environmentally friendly method not only reduces greenhouse gas emissions but also promotes the efficient use of industrial waste.

Alongside the road inauguration, NTPC Kahalgaon introduced “The Statue of Green Innovation,” constructed with geopolymer concrete. This initiative aims to increase awareness about the advantages of using eco-friendly construction materials.

During the event, Shri Ajay Sharma highlighted the environmental significance of the project and its potential to inspire more sustainable construction practices.

Reaffirming NTPC’s commitment to environmental stewardship, Shri Ajay Sharma underscored the importance of ash utilization and eco-friendly solutions in NTPC Kahalgaon’s operations. He noted that the innovative use of fly ash and GGBS in the construction of the Geopolymer Road demonstrates the company’s dedication to sustainable practices. By repurposing industrial waste materials, NTPC Kahalgaon not only reduces environmental pollution but also promotes the adoption of greener construction methods.
