Graymont is to build a production facility in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula which it says will provide high-quality lime and limestone to customers in the Great Lakes region.
Graymont’s CEO Stéphane Godin says: “This latest investment reflects our continued confidence in the economic future of Michigan and neighboring states and will further enhance our ability to support the success of lime customers in the region.”
The facility will produce a range of lime and limestone products to aid the development of applications that purifying air and water. It will also include limestone handling and calcination operations, utilising available environmental-control technologies.
Graymont has applied to the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy for the requisite air-quality permit and hopes to move forward with the project by the end of 2020.
