Holcim completes $96m Hagerstown modernization project

Holcim (US) has unveiled its newly modernized and more environmentally friendly plant in Hagerstown.

A two-year modernization project has involved an investment of US$96m to ensure that  manufacturing standards can be maintained while meeting new, more stringent environmental regulations. The upgrade has also increased  clinker production by approximately 200,000 tons to help support construction and development in Hagerstown, Greater Western Maryland, Baltimore and Washington DC.

The facility has been a cornerstone of the regional community for 113 years, said John Stull, chief executive officer of US cement operations for LafargeHolcim. "Our investment to modernize clinker production represents our continued commitment to our customers and local manufacturing,” he added. “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 will result in a more than 60% reduction to nitrogen oxides and approximately a 50 percent reduction to sulfur dioxide. The modernization project also resulted in significant reduction on Particulate Matter (PM) of more than 75%.
