Malabar Cements Limited (MCL), a full-owned undertaking of the state government of Kerala, plans to construct another cement mill at Walayar to double its production capacity from the current 50,000tpa.

A Padmakumar, managing director of Malabar Cements Ltd told the New Indian Express that the operating lifespan of the Pandarathu mines at Walayar is reported to be 16 years. “Therefore, we proposed to either purchase domestically from public sector units or import half the limestone so that the lifespan of these mines could be increased,” he said.
