Project value USD 1.5 Billion

The Port-Daniel-Gascons cement plant is one of the most important industrial projects currently under development in Canada. The cement plant will be a model of environmental performance and will thus meet the highest standards in the world.

The site of the future Port-Daniel-Gascons cement plant has many features that give it several key advantages. First, the composition of the limestone will produce cement of exceptional quality. Second, the marine terminal will dramatically reduce transportation costs, making shipping to the Eastern Seaboard and elsewhere in the world cost-effective and highly competitive. Furthermore, access to maritime transport will mean a substantial reduction in the environmental footprint generally associated with cement transportation. In fact, just one ship can carry the equivalent of 1,500 truckloads of cement.
