Myanmar: Mawlamyine Cement has been ordered to conduct an additional environmental impact assessment at its Kyaikmayaw cement plant in Mon State. The government has requested that a third party conduct the study at the site, according to the Daily Eleven newspaper. Issues with coal use, transportation of finished products via river and emissions have been raised by the Environmental Conservation Department. The cement producer has also been asked to include residents in the assessment to ensure transparency of the process.

Mawlamyine Cement is a joint venture between Thailand’s Siam Cement Group and Pacific Link Cement Industries. The 1.8Mt/yr plant was built for US$400m and was scheduled to start production in late 2016.
