LafargeHolcim inaugurates DURABRIC plant

Published by
World Cement,


LafargeHolcim has inaugurated a new DURABRIC plant in Malawi, one year after the launch of 14Trees, LafargeHolcim and CDC’s joint venture to scale up DURABRIC. DURABRIC is LafargeHolcim’s affordable building solution whose unique blend of earth, sand and cement removes the need for firing, helping to fight deforestation.

The Malawi plant is equipped with an automatic production line and is the first to produce DURABRIC on an industrial scale. The new plan will chiefly supply contractors from NGO’s and development organisation’s projects. With the correct training, mix-design and production methods, DURABRIC can also be produced on a job site.

 

Faced with high demand, 14Trees is expected to expand the DURABRIC offer into other countries, particularly across sub-Saharan Africa. The future development of DURABRIC will plat a significant role in LafargeHolcim’s 2030 plan for sustainable development, building an innovative, climate-neutral construction sector that strives to enhance the quality of life for all.
