In an effort to reduce importation costs, representatives of Cement Products limited have embarked on a project to establish a Clinker production plant.

This revelation comes at a time when there is continued concern on the price of cement by the constructing public as expensive.

The producers however, have attributed the high cost of the product to lack of locally produced clinker which is a crucial component in the production of cement.

Representatives of one of the major cement producers Lafarge Cement have also confirmed to Capital FM that Malawi uses imported clinker.

The General Manager of Cement Products Limited (CPL), Grey Kamtukule, is optimistic that their project would help save forex as the product will be locally available.

Portland cement clinker is a dark grey nodular material made by heating ground limestone and clay.

Malawi Portland Cement, the country’s sole producer and 75 per cent owned by Lafarge, operates a clinker grinding facility at Blantyre.

After the closure of the Changalume works in 2002 due to insufficient limestone reserves, there has been no clinker production in the country.

Clinker is imported from Zimbabwe, where Lafarge owns a cement  plant in Harare. In addition, there is a small cement works plant  at Kasungu, owned by local Shayona Cement  Corporation, although its current operational status remains unclear.

Due to the Malawi’s under capacity in cement production, cement exports are neglible.

At present French, Lafarge cement, with plants in Tanzania and Zambia covers regional demand requirements.
