13th Africa Cementrade Summit

13th Africa Cementrade Summit

Africa is expected to increase its investment in LC3 production in the coming years. Nova Cimangola announced in December 2023 that they are preparing to establish its LC3 production line in Angola, with the help of Ecosolutions and IPIAC. This follows efforts in West Africa by CBI Ghana and CIMAF in Burkina Faso, as well as Cimpor and Oyak’s collaboration on a plant in Kribi, Cameroon.

West African companies are now reliant on expensive clinker imports due to the scarcity of indigenous limestone for clinker manufacturing. Many of these projects are motivated by the economic benefits of clinker substitution. Limestone Calcined Clay Cement (LC3) is an innovative cement technology that can help address this issue. By employing locally available resources and producing at a reduced cost, LC3 can make housing and infrastructure more affordable across the continent.
