One year after the launch of 14Trees, LafargeHolcim’s and CDC’s joint venture to scale-up DURABRIC, 13 July 2017 marks the next exciting step in its development with the inauguration of a dedicated manufacturing plant in Malawi. DURABRIC is LafargeHolcim’s affordable building solution whose unique blend of earth, sand and cement removes the need for firing, helping fight deforestation.
Equipped with an automatic production line, the Malawi plant is the first to produce DURABRIC on an industrial scale. The new plant will chiefly supply contractors from NGOs and development organizations’ projects. With the correct training, mix-design and production methods, DURABRIC can also be produced on a job site – an innovative offer to 14Trees’ customers.
