Industry Segment: Market Brief | Word Count: 147 Words

Lehigh Hanson, a subsidiary of HeidelbergCement AG (ETR:HEI), has started construction on the planned modernization and expansion of its cement plant in Mitchell, Indiana. The ceremonial groundbreaking in October followed the approval of its air construction permit by Indiana's Department of Environmental Management.

This project will essentially rebuild and improve the existing 780,000-ton-per-year cement plant by replacing three outdated long dry rotary kiln lines with one dry kiln to increase the plant's production capacity to 2.8 million tons per year. The environmental control system will also receive a makeover to receive the latest technology to reduce energy usage and emissions.

This project has been a long time coming. Industrial Info has been tracking this plant since 1999, and the project since it was announced in 2007. Over the years, the project slowed development and was even temporarily shelved in 2015.
