Cement is manufactured through a closely controlled chemical combination of calcium, silicon, aluminum, iron, and other ingredients. Common materials used to manufacture cement include limestone, shells, and chalk or marl combined with shale, clay, slate, blast furnace slag, silica sand, and iron ore.
Cement is manufactured by heating a precise mixture of finely ground limestone, clay, and sand in a rotating kiln to temperatures reaching 1450ºC. This results in the production of cement clinker, an intermediate product in the manufacture of cement.
When it comes to the development of construction amid the latest price in retail expenses from ₦4000 to ₦4500 and now ₦3,200 to N3,600 depending on the location.
This recent price has already affected the open market, with expenses of sandcrate blocks ranging from ₦250 and ₦300 for a six-inch and 9-inch block respectively.
How much will someone spend to erect a building construction when the charge is ₦3,200? This is unfair when you buy 300 bags of cement for ₦1.5 million or more than that which is supposed not to be.
The new price of cement is now 3,200 Naira to 3,500 Naira depending on the location
Every Nigerians dream is that the expenses of products should minimize so that every Nigerian can buy any product with ease.
