 A memorandum of understanding (MoU) has been signed seeking the future for environment through cement industries operating in Nepal by checking the amount of carbon emission from these industries.

The Department of Mines and Geology and the Cement Producers' Association signed the MoU in this connection with the Technology and Action for Rural Advancement (TARA) on Monday evening. The MoU is related to production of cement in Nepal using the limestone calcine soil technology.

Director-general at the Department Ram Prasad Ghimire, Association president Dhruba Thapa and TARA vice-chairman Soumen Maite signed the MoU in the witness of secretary duo at the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Supplies, Mukunda Prasad Niraula and Narayan Prasad Sharma Duwadi.

Carbon emission can be reduced by 40 percent and the consumption of coal is also decreased when cement is produced by using the limestone calcine soil, said Director-general Ghimire. The Swiss Development Cooperation has supported this technology.

Senior geologist at the Department, Narayan Baskota said this technology was launched in Switzerland in 2013 and it is introduced in Nepal only recently. Large amount of money spent in importing coal for the cement industries can be saved with the use of this technology, it is said.
