Orcem refused planning permission for slag cement plant in California



Orcem Americas, a subsidiary of Ireland’s Ecocem, has been refused planning permission to build a slag cement plant in Vallejo, California. The cement producer was hoping to build a US$50m grinding plant but it faced opposition from local residents on environmental grounds, according to the Irish Times.

Orcem Americas can now appeal the decision to Vallejo’s City Council if it chooses.
