Ecocem forced to drop Vallejo mill project

Ecocem forced to drop Vallejo mill project
28 May 2019

Ecocem of Ireland has dropped plans for a grinding mill Vallejo, San Francisco Bay, California, USA, after project partner Vallejo Marine Terminal (VMT) withdrew from the proposed plant.

VMT's lawyer, Krista Kim, told the city council that her client no longer supported the project, which has endured a six-year planning application battle. VMT owned the land on which the proposed EUR45m plant would have been constructed for Ecocem subsidiary Orcem Americas.

Vallejo's council was scheduled to hear an appeal and consider the final environmental report for the project on Thursday 20 May, but the public meeting has now been cancelled and the project has been terminated.
