Cruz Azul partially closes Tula plant

Cruz Azul partially closes Tula plant
07 February 2018

Cruz Azul is partially closing its Tula plant in Hidalgo, Mexico, as it lacks current environmental authorisation for the operation of its plant.

Staff of the Federal Procuracy for Environmental Protection (Profepa) carried out an inspection of the plant and when verifying documents, it was found that the plant did not have a current authorisation of the Environmental and Natural Resources Secretariat (Semarnat).

As a precautionary measure the construction and operation of Raw Mill No 6 will be halted. The project covers a 3589m2 area at the plant and the closure includes the conveyor belt, dust transport to the bag filter, integrated raw mill and the hot gas injection system to Kiln No 9.
