Kashmiri cement producers operating without environmental clearance
India: Several cement producers in Jammu and Kashmir are operating quarries and plants in the vicinity of Dachigam National Park without the mandatory no-objection certification (NOC) from the union territory’s Forest Department. The Deccan Herald newspaper named JK Cement, TCI Cement, Khyber Industries and Green Land Cement as companies that have as yet failed to apply for NOCs for plants in the area. The newspaper alleged political interference in favour of cement producers, publishing state government internal correspondence that gave the distances of Khyber Industries, TCI Cements, Saifco Cements, Dawar Cement, HK Cement and Cemtac Cements plants from the national park as 2.5km, 6.0 km, 3.0km, 6.0 km, 5.0km and 6.0km respectively. According to the source, the true distances are 2.2km, 3.4km, 2.3km, 3.6km, 4.0km and 4.9km and this is part of the state’s support for illegal cement production which constitutes a ‘politician-bureaucrat-cement mafia nexus’ which has enabled private companies to ‘flout norms with impunity.’

The Concrete Roads Congress and Exhibition takes place in Ankara, Turkey
The first Concrete Roads Congress and Exhibition was held at the Ankara KGM Halil Rifat Pasa Conference Hall under the auspices of the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure, and with technical support from the General Directorate of Highways (KGM), the Turkish Cement Manufacturers Association (TÇMB) and the European Concrete Paving Association (EUPAVE). The first Concrete Roads Congress and Exhibition served as a platform for the discussion of every aspect of concrete roads, including the technological developments witnessed in concrete road construction in Turkey to date. The exhibition saw the participation of Enver Iskurt, Deputy Minister of Transport and Infrastructure. In his opening speech, Dr. Tamer Saka, Chairman of the Board of the TÇMB, noted that the adoption of concrete roads, in addition to asphalt roads, would contribute to the country s economy by reducing the current account deficit. Saka said, “Concrete roads are a long-lasting, solid and domestic alternative that require very little maintenance or repair throughout their useful life. As you know, the binder used in asphalt roads, is a by-product of imported crude oil, for which we rely heavily on foreign resources. In contrast, cement and concrete are completely domestic products.” Saka stated that continuously reinforced concrete roads – as a solid and domestic alternative to asphalt in road and highway construction – are resistant to heavy vehicular traffic loads and have a service life of more than 50 years. He also explained, “Roller compacted concrete roads, that have started to be constructed in rural areas, are 40% more economical in terms of the initial construction cost, and last 3-4 times longer.” It was also highlighted that concrete barriers reduce mortalities from road traffic accidents by around 20%, and are in wide use across Europe. In his opening speech at the Congress, Nihat Özdemir, Member of the Board of the TÇMB, said, “If 50% of the highways and state roads, 10% of provincial roads and 20% of the local administration road networks were to be constructed from concrete, we could save US$700 million in initial construction costs. We will thus save up to US$8.1 billion in 10 years, including maintenance and repair costs, as is the case in developed countries, and will have generated longer-lasting and even permanent solutions.” The Concrete Roads Congress and Exhibition saw the participation of more than 1000 people, including managers and technical officials from domestic and foreign public institutions, municipalities and special provincial administrations, as well as academicians and representatives of the private sector. Participants from various countries, including the US, Germany, Belgium, Chile, Poland and France, spoke about concrete road applications in their own countries, and specialists and academicians delivered a total of 24 presentations during the technical sessions. /WorldCement

China set to expand its influence in infrastructure across emerging Asia
According to GlobalData s report, China s Involvement In Global Infrastructure , the total value of infrastructure projects in which Chinese contractors are at least partially involved stands at US$235 billion, while in South Asia the project values total US$191 billion. China launched Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) in 2013 to develop the modern-day versions of the land-based Silk Road Economic Belt and the Maritime Silk Road of the 21st Century . Under the initiative, China is seeking to improve in-frastructure in emerging markets across the world, facilitating economic devel-opment through the companies that are able to transport goods more easily and cheaply between countries along various routes. Danny Richards, Lead Economist at GlobalData, comments, “Although wari-ness has been increasing among the governments in emerging markets over the risks of relying heavily on China for funding and construction contracts, the opportunities provided under the BRI can be attractive for governments with limited funding capacity and rising infrastructure needs.” In Asia, reflecting political challenges and concerns over the build-up of debt, new governments in Pakistan, Malaysia, and the Maldives, in particular, have been challenging contracts that had been signed with China or have been de-laying progress on existing projects. Nevertheless, it is clear that China is heavily influencing the development of infrastructure in Asia s emerging markets. Based on GlobalData s analysis, if all infrastructure projects in the pipeline proceed as planned, spending on projects involving Chinese contractors could reach US$64 billion in 2020, up from US$23 billion in 2014.
