Mexican cement manufacturer Cemex is to invest EUR84.4m  in the construction of a new cement plant in Andorra, in the Spanish autonomous region of Aragon. According Aragon’s minister for tourism, industry and trade, Arturo Aliaga, the plant, which will be operational in the first quarter of 2009, will have a cement production of capacity of more than 650,000tpa and create 120 jobs directly. 
 
According to Ignacio Madridejos, the manager of Cemex Espana, ’the production of the plant will be used mainly to supply the domestic market, and the idea is to substitute imports of cement from countries such as China, where it is not produced with the same regard for the environment’.
