Plaster plant gets green light

On November 18, Saint-Gobain celebrated laying the foundation stone of its new plaster plant in Yangzhou, Jiangsu province, China.

Construction of this new plant is scheduled for completion in early 2021. It will have an annual production capacity of 600,000 metric tons of plaster products. This production line will without a doubt be the most modern in Asia.

The plant’s production processes will not create any wastewater and raw material waste will be reused as part of a circular economy approach. The Chinese market has high potential and vast capacity. With its transition to the green economy, the eco-innovative solutions can help meet the demand for green materials. Saint-Gobain will continue to invest in the Chinese market to provide efficient and environmentally friendly solutions.
