The new cement facility, built in Bragno, the northern Italian municipality of Cairo Montenotte, by Cemex, Cementilce, will start operations in July 2007.
Cementilce has invested EUR25m (US$34m) in the plant. The facility will specialise in the production of clinker, an intermediate material used for cement extraction.
The project of Cementilce adds to the one, already launched by Turin-based Mana in the areas of Cairo Reindustria. The two plants will have a combined production capacity of 800,000 tonnes of clinker.
