Science in our materials


Scientific research enables Bamburi Cement Ltd. to understand the properties of its products in order to improve their performance and develop even greater innovations.

Environmentally friendly building materials

Bamburi Cement Ltd. uses scientific research and experimentation to find ways of using fewer natural resources. Bamburi's goals in researching more environmentally friendly products are twofold:


  • In the production process, to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and conserve natural resources - e.g. by increasing the proportion of recycled raw materials used.

  • To develop products for sustainable construction - e.g. enhancing the properties of materials, such as concrete, that retain and distribute heat in cold climates and keep interiors cool in warm climates.
