Holcim’s mega-sized cement plant in St. Genevieve, Missouri – world’s largest green cement plant

The largest green cement plant in the country—the safest…and the greenest…in the world.That’s the proclamation ahead of Friday’s official opening of Holcim’s mega-sized cement plant in St. Genevieve,

Missouri, about an hour south of St. Louis.
Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, Surgeon General Regina Benjamin and Governor Jay Nixon are scheduled to be the guests of honor to celebrate the new $1 billion facility. Holcim actually opened the green cement plant last August, and it’s already had a significant impact on the local economy. Building the plant resulted in more than 2,500 construction jobs and it currently employs 250 people.

But what of it’s impact on the environment? Holcim Vice President Jeff Ouhltells KMOX News that substantial investments have been made to reduce emissions and increase energy efficiency.

“It’s what we call a green cement plant,” Ouhl says. “We started from scratch. It’s obviously a plant that was put in for the long-term for us to serve our customers with reliable, quality, consistent cement. It’s a state-of-the-art plant with all the latest technology.”

The plant can produce more than 12,000 metric tons of clinker per day and 4 million metric tons of cement each year.
