About the Jamul project

The new Jamul clinker plant with a capacity of 2.8Mta is scheduled for completion at ACC’s Jamul site by the end of 2015. The clinker line will replace older plants at Jamul. At the same time grinding capacity at this site is also being replaced.

This combined capacity expansion will further improve the efficiency of ACC.
