The construction industry in India has witnessed high growth rates in the recent years.
With increasing demand for built-up dwelling units and pressure of urbanization, the growth rate is expected to increase. 72% of India's power plants are coal based. These power stations generate nearly 50 60 million tones of fly ash annually. Fly ash causes severe pollution of air and water, and its disposal gobbles up large tracts of land. Proper management of fly ash is thereby necessitated so that our already perilously imbalanced environment can be protected. Biltech Building Elements Limited, with a twofold aim to utilize bulk quantities of flyash and help bridge the huge shortfall of bricks and other building materials required by the constantly rising construction activity, undertook the mechanized manufacture of flyash based Aerated Autoclaved Concrete Blocks through its plant located at Palwal in the early 90s and in Bhigwan in 2007. The conventional practice of firing clay bricks in Bulls Trench Kilns (BTK) and rural country clamps consumes huge quantities of energy in terms of coal, firewood and other fuels and erode a lot of top soil. They are also notorious as highly polluting establishments which are posing severe threats to human health. The pollution by these units has attracted considerable attention and strict action by the environmental authorities. The brick industry, however, has failed improve upon their manufacturing processes. Biltech Building Elements Limited, an Avantha Group Company ( formerly The Thapar Group), through its technical collaboration with YTONG, Gmbh, Germany is in the business of manufacturing and marketing Autoclaved Aerated Concrete building material using Fly-ash (60%-65%) as the basic raw material. First Plant is located at Palwal has a manufacturing capacity one lac fifty thousand cubic meter per annum and Second Plant is located at Bhigwan , near Pune having capacity of one Lac cubic meter per annum . Autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) is a building material which consists of various sized elements that form a complete building system. In most cases, every portion of the structural and insulation requirements of a building are satisfied with the one material. The elimination of a number of other materials and the fact that AAC is an inherently "green" building system results in a "healthier" building. Low energy required in production, low raw material consumption, ease of use in construction, high energy efficiency, better indoor air quality, and recyclability add up to make AAC a very environmentally friendly building material and system. AAC Products have found prominence in various projects all over the country. Through its unique and inherent properties, these products are being widely appreciated and extensively used in Northern, Central and Western states.

The Manufacturing Process: Various raw materials fly-ash, quicklime, cement, gypsum, and aluminium powder are tested, graded and stored in their respective silos. These are then metered and conveyed in a programmed sequence into the batch mixer. This mixture is poured into moulds, allowed to rise and set, trimmed and cut to shape and size and loaded into autoclaves. In the autoclaves they are steamed, as per the process requirements, for up to 12 hours, unloaded, palletised and sent for dispatch. Pulverised fly-ash is obtained from the NTPC power plant at Badarpur Thermal Power Station (BTPS).

Basic material Thanks to its characteristic structure comprising millions of tiny pores, it offers optimum solidity at low weight. As air has a low heat conductivity, aerated concrete provides excellent thermal protection. It protects from cold and heat, allowing for single-shell constructions which provide more space, save time and reduce cost aspects which are of considerable importance.
