Building Honduras´ future with quality
CENOSA owns the most modern cement production factory in Honduras. There are two production lines that make it not only the largest producer, but also the one with the largest cement producing capacity in Honduras, with an installed capacity that reaches 2.3 million metric tons of cement per year, or up to more than 5.3 million tons. combined with our partner Cementos Progreso.

We have a variety of products under ASTM´s standard, such as: C-150, C-1157, C-595, C-91
Our second expansion was made in 2009, powered by the German company Polysius, with the implementation of a 250 ton / day Quadropol brand raw flour mill and a furnace with a capacity of 3,100 ton / day. This allows us to improve and increase our energy efficiency, reaching an installed production capacity of 1.7 MM tons of clinker annually. Then, through the start-up of a Dorol brand cement mill with a capacity of 2000 tons / day, that cement production capacity increases to 2.3 MM per year.

In 2015, we installed a new TITAN brand crusher, Thyssenkrup design, with a capacity of 900 ton / h, gives us the ability to have the necessary raw material to operate the two clinker production lines.

In 2007 we started operations with a new expansion to co-process fuel derived from residues (FDRs), which in a first phase gave us an energy replacement capacity of 10%. In 2018, a new cement ball mill, Cemengal brand, with a capacity of 25 tons / h, also started operations, increasing the installed cement production capacity by 16%.
Our cement laboratory was created to serve our customers, so that, based on scientific evidence, we can give them support and advise them on their projects. In this laboratory, we perform several tests including:
  • Aggregate tests
  • Specimen ruptures
  • Other physical and chemical tests to determine durability in concretes
  • The processes are carried out based on the recommendations and procedures of PCA and ACI standards.
