Supreme Court lifts ban on use of petcoke in cement industry

Supreme Court of India has lifted the ban of use of petcoke in cement and limestone industry. The move has been made after the realization that harmful sulphur oxide is absorbed in manufacturing process of cement. This decision has arrived after MoEF submitted that petcoke is mainly used as a feedstock, not as a fuel.

The court has directed MoEF to ensure that the petcoke supplied to the cement industry will not be illegally diverted to other destinations.
