Saudi Cement Company recently announced that it will permanently shutdown and remove three kilns from its Holuf plant. Kilns 1, 2 and 3 were brought into reoperation in December 2013 to meet rising demand and market pressures. However, they are no longer needed, and their age, higher operating costs and lower environmental efficiency resulted in the Board of Directors’ decision to remove them from site.
