New plant considered for Montenegro

New plant considered for Montenegro
15 November 2018

A meeting of Montenegro’s Chamber of Commerce considered the construction of a new cement plant in Pljevlja, which would use the municipality's natural resources. Vlastimir Golubovic, president, noted that the country imported cement to the value of EUR39m in the 9M18, with product worth EUR41.14m imported in 2017.

Mr Golubovic also stated that the country's Strategy for the Development of Civil Engineering foresees the building of cement capacity by 2020, in line with environmental standards. 

The proposed cement plant would bring economic benefits and use the by-products of the Pljevlja thermal power plant as a raw material, according to Vijesti. However, it was noted at the meeting that significant investment would be required to implement the project as well as a railroad route to enable the works to function.
