Local revenues from public cement company “Ciments de Bizerte” edged up 321,317 dinars at the end of Q3 2015 or 2.3% from the third quarter of 2014.
Given that domestic demand for hydraulic binders declined by -3.70% (in terms of quantity sold in the market), local revenues to September 30, 2015 grew by 7,257,414 dinars or 21.8% over the same period in 2014.
As to the overall turnover, it grew only 1,662,280 dinars or 4.25% hence widely reabsorbing the decline in revenue from export.
The decline in exports was mainly due to fluctuation of the Algerian market and the virtual absence of demand from the Libyan market.
Concerning clinker production in Q3 2015, it increased by 55,050 tons or 47.5% compared to Q3 2014.
