Under the title, “Towards the right direction”, participants discovered the different aspects of the plant, visited the production line starting with extraction of the raw materials until the packaging of cement.
In a joyful and friendly atmosphere, the day started with a warm welcome by our friendly staff. Guided tours were organized to share with our guests the cement production process and Holcim’s achievements in environmental performance and safety. In addition, attendants had the opportunity to visit a booth by AFDC (Association for Forest Development and Conservation) to learn how they can reduce their environmental footprint through simple and practical steps.
