Spotlight-JSW Cement

JSW portland slag cement ensuring a Green & Sustainable future


JSW Cement entered the cement industry in 2009 and is relatively a late entrant into the industry, but with a capacity to produce over 6 million tons per year, it is fast becoming a force to reckon with


India, one of the fastest growing economies in the world, is witnessing an unprecedented growth in infrastructure. JSW Cement believes that this growth needs to be sustainable and is consciously contributing to creating a self-reliant India by manufacturing the building blocks of the Indian development story with its world-class cement. It is plants at Vijayanagar in Karnataka, Nandyal in Andhra Pradesh and Dolvi in Maharashtra utilise slag from the JSW Steel plants to produce green cement.


JSW Cement produces:

  • Portland Slag Cement (PSC)
  • Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag (GGBFS)


JSW entered the cement industry in 2009 with a vision to ensure a sustainable future for the country by producing eco-friendly cement, using industrial by-products such as slag. By converting industrial by-product into a useful product, it has reduced the carbon footprint of the group.


Not only does this ensure optimal utilisation of resources but also saves the ecological risk of industrial by-product dumping.


Not only does JSW Cement manufacture one of the most eco-friendly cement in India, but it also engineers its products for superior strength and durability. Its flagship plant in Nandyal uses world-class technology (including the advanced Combi Finish Mode Roller Press Circuit and automated loading system) to manufacture cement. It has won prestigious award for its energy-saving processes.




PSC is blended cement. It is the most suitable cement for Infrastructure Projects because of its high flexural strength. PSC has been voted as the most suitable cement for mass construction because of its low heat of hydration.

It can be used in all types of residential, commercial and industrial projects, Dams and other mass concrete works, Water retaining structures, Concrete roads and flyovers, Most suitable for marine constructions, Pre-cast concrete products and Foundations and piles construction




PSC’s inherent chemistry gives it several advantages over ordinary cement. Apart from being more environment-friendly, it offers;

  • Ultimate compressive strength
  • Excellent resistance to Chloride & Sulphate attacks
  • Low risk of cracking
  • Improved workability
  • Better compatibility with all types of admixtures
  • Superior finish
  • Ease of pumping
  • Better resistance against alkali-silica reaction
  • Minimised shrinkage cracks




The chemical composition of GGBS contributes to the production of superior cement concrete.It ensures better durability of structures. GGBS is considered as green building material for sustainable constructions. It increases flexibility to meet individual requirement in RMC. GGBS significant attribute of providing ultimate strength when added to Portland cement makes it the preferred material in the construction of High-rise buildings. Marine applications such as dams, shore protection construction,effluent and sewage treatment plants and Cement products such as tiles, pipes, blocks, etc.




Ensures higher durability of structure.

  • Reduces the temperature rise and helps to avoid early-age thermal cracking.
  • Improved workability.
  • It is off-white in colour and substantially lighter than Portland cement. Resultantly it helps soften the visual impact of large structures such as bridges and retaining walls.

With key markets in Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Maharashtra, Orissa, and Goa, JSW Cement has been delivering high-quality product to several prestigious and large infrastructural projects in the s of the country.
