By 2020, Uzbekistan's cement plants will switch to the dry mode of production, which will be more economical than the traditional technology. This is envisaged by the presidential decree of May 26, 2017. Moreover, it is part of the 2017-2020 program of measures aimed at increasing the level of energy efficiency in the republic's economy and social sphere. The Fund for Reconstruction and Development of Uzbekistan will act as the source of financing for this large-scale project; Uzbek commercial banks will provide the necessary loan funds.


According to the official forecast, the volumes of cement production in Uzbekistan will increase by 3.5 percent on average; in 2019, they will amount to 8.9 million tons. This indicator is envisaged by the Program of measures aimed at structural changes, modernization and diversification of production in the period 2015-2019.


According to Uzstroymaterialy, cement occupies a significant share in the total volume of industrial production in Uzbekistan: about 76 percent.


Plans are also afoot in the republic to construct new cement plants. The largest Chinese company, Anhui Conch Cement Limited, is going to build such a facility in Samarkand Province. Its annual capacity will reach 2 million tons of cement.


The Novolipetsk Steel Group recently signed a five-year contract with the Eurocement Group on the supply of raw materials for cement production.

The Eurocement Group will receive up to 5 million tons of raw materials from the Stoilensky MMC (Russia) The supplies will include iron-containing additives and granular slag, as well as chalk and clay.
