China Runji Cement Inc (CRJI), a leading producer and distributor of cement in Anhui Province of China today announced that the Company has passed the water and soil preservation assessment at the construction site of its third cement clinker production line, hence allowing the Company to submit a formal application for commencing the construction work on its third production line with an anticipated output of 4,500 tons of cement per day.

After the third cement production line is online, CRJI will be able to supply its regional market with over 10,000tpd of cement, or around 4Mta. This will make CRJI one of the largest cement manufacturers in China.

Subject to the approval of the government, CRJI plans to build the third cement clinker production line within two years in order to capture potential opportunities in the growing Chinese cement market driven by a 4 trillion RMB stimulus plan announced by the Chinese central government in October of 2008.
