Ghorahi Cement Industry, a manufacturing and trading company will soon begin the operations at its new cement plant in Laxmipur VDC, Nepal.

The new cement plant, which has a potential production capacity of 660,000 metric tones, will commence its operations from July, 2011. It will produce only 1100 metric tones of cement at the beginning and will gradually increase its production capacity to 2,000 metric tones.

Ghorahi Cement has already entered in to an agreement with a German brand for the purchase of machinery for the new plant. The cement factory will use high-tech equipment for pollution control and will also install a machine that will utilize 3000 KCAL coal available in Dang. Additionally, the company is planning to use wood shavings and used tires as fuel for clinker production in the plant.

The construction of the cement plant is still underway. Once the cement plant begins operating at its full potential, the country will gain about NPR1250 billion ($18 millions) in revenue.
