Iranian exports touch 4.4 MT

Iran exported 2.57 MT of cement and 1.83 MT of clinker in the first four months of the current Iranian calendar (20 March-21 July 2016), according to the country´s Secretary of the Cement Industry Employers Association, Abdolreza Sheikhan. Domestic output by the country´s 70 cement plants reached 18.75 MT during this period.

In the past Iranian calendar year 1394 (ended on 19 March 2016), exports of cement and clinker stood at more than 15 MT, a 20 per cent decrease compared to the preceding year due to instability in neighbouring countries.

Sheikhan stated that the country had a production capacity of 75 MTPA of cement and clinker in 2014.
