Lhoist North America to add lime production capacity in Texas

US: Lhoist North America says it intends to add lime production capacity in Texas. It stated that population growth in the south of the country had created increased demand for its calcium-based products, with customers having announced new steel mills, liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facilities, lithium hydroxide production plants and water treatment facilities. In its view these expansions in multiple markets require lime both in the initial infrastructure build and in longer-term production processes.

The subsidiary of Belgium-based Lhoist said in mid-September 2023 that it was expecting to file permits for the expansion in the coming weeks and the location for the new production capacity will be revealed at a later date.
