Titan Group, a global producer of cement and construction materials, and Sinoma CBMI, a global leader in cement technology and engineering systems integration, have recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU). This memorandum has the purpose of exploring new business opportunities and drive technological innovations aimed at the decarbonization and digitalizing the current cement manufacturing process.

Sinoma CBMI CEO, Tong Laigou, said that their main objective is to strengthen the cooperation bond with Titan Group on topics related to green and low-carbon development, digital intelligence, and plant operation and maintenance. The alliance marks a new chapter of mutual trust and mutually beneficial cooperation.

Titan Group Executive Committee Chairman, Marcel Cobuz, said that this partnership with Sinoma seeks to enhance its Green Growth Strategy 2026. Likewise, this alliance will benefit both companies by promoting efficiency on several fronts, taking into account that both share the same goal: Transforming the building materials industry towards a better future with net zero emissions.

Titan and Sinoma CBMI have had a successful history of collaborative work; both companies are keen to deepen their partnership. This has been evident since the joint construction of Titan’s state-of-the-art cement plant in Albania in 2010. ANTEA Cement Sh.A. is one of the largest industrial investments made by Titan Group in Albania. The cement plant, located near Fushe Kruje, has a capacity to produce a total of 1.4 million tons of cement per year. The operation of this plant aims not only to reduce the need to import cement into the country, but also to encourage new investments in housing and infrastructure development, as well as exports.

The current MoU includes areas of collaboration such as low-carbon fuel technologies, cooling technologies, virtual cement technology, digital spare parts storage, modular grinding solutions and carbon capture solutions. The agreement also highlights research and development in data-driven digital manufacturing, logistics optimization, plant automation, waste heat recovery, smart mining technologies and efficient grinding of clay and other complementary cementitious materials.
