Bosnia and Herzegovina: Schaefer Kalk Gmbh & Co is planning to initiate a joint manufacturing project with BFS, part of the Stanć group. The Euro30m project will be located in the city of Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina and will generate around 150 jobs.

The entire production of the future lime plant will be exported to markets in Africa, Asia and Europe. Mostar was chosen because of its proximity to the port of Ploče in Croatia, which would facilitate the export process.

"At the moment the initiative is in the preparation phase, which includes obtaining certification on taking the test quantity of limestone," said the Mostar city authorities. "After this a trial production would take place in the BFS plants in Kresevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina."
