Cementos Cosmos exports 13% of clinker to Brazil

The Brazilian market is offering Spain’s Cementos Cosmos the opportunity to maintain its clinker production at a high level. Of the 1.5Mt clinker produced at its Toral de los Vados plant, Cosmos exports 0.2Mt to Brazil.

While the company’s management says it is preferable to sell the clinker in the market where it is produced, " the market situation has led us to take the opportunity our parent offered, even at the cost of losing part of the profit margin in the transport,” said the company.

Cementos Cosmos was acquired by Votorantim after the Brazilian cement producer bought Portuguese Cimpor in early 2013.
