Construction is moving forward for the Central Lime Project’s (CLP) wharf infrastructure in Papua New Guinea (PNG), according to an update from Mayur Resources.
Mayur is developing Asia Pacific’s first carbon-neutral quicklime, clinker and cement project for supply to PNG, Australia and the South Pacific at a lower cost than Asian exporters, according to the company’s website. The CLP is phase 1 of a vertically integrated manufacturing facility with the ability to meet 100 percent of PNG’s raw lime, lime, hydrated lime and other building material requirements.
When constructed, the colocated quarry, plant site and deep draft wharf will enable scalable production of high-grade limestone, aggregates and lime products at low operating costs within the first quartile of the global cost curve. The CLP is also seeking to become Asia Pacific's first carbon-neutral producer, seeking to service and meet increasing demand from the critical minerals and battery metals pro
