Mizu inaugurates Barauna
Brazil’s upbeat stance on civil construction is expected to raise cement demand significantly. The country’s cement producers are responding by raising output capacity. As such, Cimentos Mizu introduces its new 1.2Mta Barauna plant to the market with further capacity planned for the future.
Brazil’s present economic situation underlines the country’s clear growth in recent years and the civil construction sector is set to be one of the main beneficiaries of this progress. As a result, the domestic cement industry has been steadily increasing its cement production capacity either through the construction of new plants or simply by increasing capabilities at existing cement facilities.
To better supply the country’s northeast region, Cimentos Mizu inaugurated its largest integrated cement plant at Barauna city, Rio Grande do Norte state, on 25 May 2012. The new facility adds 1.2Mta of capacity to the company’s existing network of plants in the states of São Paulo, Espirito Santo, Rio de Janeiro and Sergipe, which have a total potential output of 3.5Mta.
