Lafarge North America Inc. Key Developments

A.G. Schneiderman and Department of Environmental Conservation Commissioner Martens Announce Continuing Air Pollution Reductions in Updated Settlement with Ravena Cement Plant Modification Provides Lafarge North America More Time to Build New Kiln while Continuing Air Pollution Emission Reductions

Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman and Department of Environmental Conservation Commissioner Joe Martens, along with federal officials, announced an amended settlement with Lafarge North America, which operates a cement plant in Albany County. The agreement extends by 18 months the deadline by which the company must build a new kiln with advanced air pollution controls. In exchange for additional time, the settlement sets annual limits on allowable emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx) and sulfur dioxide (SO2) by the Ravena plant that are at or below the limits contained in the original settlement. A separate agreement between New York and LaFarge limits mercury emissions to levels 25% lower than the plant's current air pollution control permit. The revised settlement also commits Lafarge to funding $1.5 million in projects to further reduce pollution emissions at the plant and in the surrounding communities. Settlement amends a 2010 consent decree that the federal Environmental Protection Agency, New York and 11 other states entered into with Lafarge requiring the company to limit pollutant emissions from its 13 plants nationwide. In New York, the company's Ravena plant was required to meet these limits by either retrofitting the plant's existing cement kilns with pollution controls or by constructing a new, kiln with advanced pollution controls by January 1, 2015. Lafarge elected to construct a new kiln to comply with the consent decree, but approached the state and federal government about an extension of time to complete the construction because the recovery of the U.S. cement industry from the recent recession has been slower than expected, resulting in Lafarge delaying its investment in a new kiln at the Ravena plant. The amended consent decree, filed in federal court today, allows the company until July 1, 2016 to complete construction of the new kiln and requires Lafarge to follow a specific construction schedule that includes milestones and penalties if there are any further delays.
