The integrated plant has a capacity of 2.4 million tonnes each of clinker and cement which is being upgraded to 3.2 million tonnes of clinker.

The Risda plant is equipped with unique robotic laboratory for quality monitoring with experts on board for total quality management.
The integrated plant boasts of Wastage Heat Recovery System, thereby making it environment friendly since the waste heat from the system gets utilized/recycled to generate power. The waste heat recovery system is one of its kind in the industry and would make the Risda plant most efficient in terms of electrical energy consumption.
