Mongolia explores export to Russia

Mongolia explores export to Russia
03 June 2016

With Mongolia’s cement production on the rise, the country may start exporting its surplus to countries such as Russia. National producers are currently studying the possibilities, according to local news reports.

Demand in the country has risen with growing housing and infrastructure requirements. Mongolia’s cement production currently meets about 90 per cent of the domestic demand, which in 2013 reached 2Mt. With a capacity of 1.9Mta in 2013, the country has been importing cement to fulfil its needs. However, with domestic production on a steady rise capacity is expected to reach 4.5Mta by the end of 2016.

To help meet this growing demand two new cement plants will be commissioned later this year, potentially making Mongolia completely self-sufficient with the possibility of surplus for exporting.
