GCC to expand Odessa cement plant

Updated:2022-08-12 10:49

GCC plans to invest US$750m in an upgrade to its 0.9Mt/yr Odessa cement plant in Texas. The Milenio newspaper has reported that the upgrade will more than double the plant’s capacity to 1.9Mt/yr and lower its CO2 emissions per tonne of cement by 13%. GCC expects the new capacity to be operational by 2025.

The group said “GCC will carry out the project at the Odessa plant because the US market is developing faster and represents savings in freight compared to the plant located in Chihuahua, Mexico.”
