Holcim US Hagerstown cement plant celebrates US$96m upgrade

Holcim US has officially completed its US$96m upgrade project to its Hagerstown cement plant in Maryland. The two-year modernisation project has helped the plant to adhere to NESHAP environmental rules and has increased production capacity at the site by 0.2Mt/yr. 

«A cornerstone of the regional community for 113 years, we recognise the importance of this facility to the Hagerstown community,» said John Stull, chief executive officer of US cement operations for LafargeHolcim. «Our investment to modernise clinker production represents our continued commitment to our customers and local manufacturing. The facility will continue to be a strong and reliable partner to the community for many more years to come.» 

The upgrades to the plant should deliver a more than a 60% reduction to nitrogen oxides (NOx), approximately a 50% reduction to sulfur dioxide (SO2) and more than a 75% reduction to Particulate Matter (PM) emissions from the plant.
