The new deposit will provide Kant Cement's cement plant with raw materials over the long term, including limestone with higher calcium content, reducing the facility's consumption of crushed stone and minimising dust emissions.
Located in Kant, in the Ysykata district of Kyrgyzstan's Chüy region, Kant Cement's cement plant has used fly ash as an additive in cement milling for more than a year. Fly ash is a finely dispersed material formed after coal combustion in boiler furnaces at thermal power plants and extracted by ash collectors.
Thanks to fly ash, Kant Cement Plant generates over 65,000 tons of ash annually, reducing coal waste and significantly improving the environmental safety in the region.
