Public Documents

Project Background



The Kaolin Group aims to revolutionize the cement and construction materials industry by using raw kaolin as a sustainable alternative to traditional cement materials like clinker. They have built a plant to produce Limestone Calcined Clay (LC2), quartz filler and calcined clay, low carbon-footprint alternatives suitable for concrete, mortars, screeds, plasters, and more.


Location: The plant is situated in the Atlantis Industrial area at 7 Louwtjie Rothman Street, Erf 282, Atlantis, Cape Town, Western Cape.


Needed licenses/authorisations: i) A Section 24G Application is required to rectify construction without prior environmental authorization (LN1: Activity 34). ii) An Atmospheric Emissions License (AEL) is needed for operationalisation, categorised under Metallurgical Industry – Subcategory 4.1: Drying and Calcining.


Consultants: BraafSA will manage the Section 24G Application to the Competent Authority, the Western Cape Department of Environmental Affairs and Development Planning (DEA&DP). DDA Environmental Engineers (DDA) will manage the application with the City of Cape Town. The Section 24G process precedes the AEL decision but a joint public participation process is being undertaken.
