25 September 2015

On 20 September, Alkhalij Cement Company, one of only two cement providers in Qatar, announced its investment of nearly Qr.800 million on a new production line to keep up with the growing demand for cement in the country.

The company, established in 2006, originally built the plant as part of the greenfield cement project. It is a regionally unique cement plant that adopts environmentally-friendly Best Available Technology (BAT).

 The Greenfield industrial plant established a clinkerisation unit with a guaranteed capacity of 6000 tpd, and a grinding capacity of 9000 t of cement.

The new investment, which is expected to be operational from 1Q16, is intended to increase cement production capabilities by 50%, as well as to double clinker production.
