27 Jun 2023
Cahya Mata Sarawak Bhd’s (CMS) subsidiary Cahya Mata Cement Sdn Bhd has received approval for the construction of a new clinker line with a daily production of 6,000 MT per day or 1.9 million metric tonne per year, at Mambong, Kuching, Sarawak at a cost of RM750 million.
Clinker is the material produced in the calcination stage and is usually used as the binder in many cement products.
In a filing with Bursa Malaysia Securities, CMS said the project is expected to take 36 months to complete.
The project is expected to meet Sarawak’s growing domestic cement demand and increase production efficiency, which leads to reduction in carbon footprint and ensure continuous sustainability.
