US: Lehigh Cement has received permission from the Indiana Department of Environmental Management for a US$600m upgrade to its integrated Mitchell plant. IDEM's Office of Air Quality granted a modification to the unit’s air permit in late June 2019 following a period of public comment, according to the Times-Mail newspaper. The subsidiary of Germany’s HeidelbergCement plans to increases the production capacity at the plant to 2.8Mt/yr from 0.8Mt/yr. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2020 and completion of the new plant is anticipated by the end of 2022. Once finished the upgrades will create 52 new jobs at the unit.
