A cement plant which will use environmentally friendly technologies has been opened in Mongolia.

The Senj Sant facility will use a waste heat recovery power plant, which will help save energy and water.

It will produce one million tonnes of cement.

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) invested $85 million (£54.4m) in the project.

It is located in Urgun Soum, Dornogovi province, 450km from the capital Ulaanbaatar.

Azjargal Ulziitogtokh, EBRD’s senior banker in charge of the project said: “This project will be a major step towards establishing domestic cement supply and substituting for imports. It is also important for the country’s economic diversification.

“The EBRD is proud to highlight that the project meets EU requirements and will be using best available technology.”
