LafargeHolcim inaugurates first dedicated Durabric plant in Malawi

LafargeHolcim inaugurates first dedicated Durabric plant in Malawi
14 July 2017

One year after the launch of 14Trees, LafargeHolcim’s and CDC’s joint venture to scale-up Durabric, 13 July 2017 marks the next step in its development with the inauguration of a dedicated manufacturing plant in Malawi.

Durabric is LafargeHolcim’s affordable building solution, produced with a unique blend of earth, sand and cement, which removes the need for firing, helping fight deforestation.

Equipped with an automatic production line, the Malawi plant is the first to produce Durabric on an industrial scale. The new plant will chiefly supply contractors from NGOs and development organisations’ projects. With the correct training, mix-design and production methods, Durabric can also be produced on a job site – an innovative offer to 14Trees' customers.

4Trees is a joint-venture company between LafargeHolcim and CDC the UK’s Development Finance Institution owned by DfID, formed with the goal of scaling up our Affordable Housing solutions across developing countries.
