What is Cement?
Cement is a binder that sets and hardens independently and can bind other materials together. It is a substance made from an aggregate of minerals and clay, mixed with water. Cement is used in construction as a base for roads, buildings, and structures such as foundations, floors, and walls. In its wet state, this mixture allows the cement to adhere to the surface it will bind to—most commonly concrete—and resist penetration by water.
Cement manufacturing is the last stage of the cement production process. In this process, all of the ingredients are mixed together in precise proportions to produce a concrete mixture ready for building or construction. The success of a cement manufacturing operation depends on many factors such as product quality, customer satisfaction, and reliable equipment.
In Ghana, it has its terminal in Tema where it’s bagged and it only has one variety.
The price of Dangote Cement in Ghana 2022 is selling for GHC35.55 per 50kg.
