Cemex Guatemala has submitted the environmental impact study (EIA) to the Ministry of Environment to develop the  project called "Arizona plant capacity expansion". The project will be developed on a section of land within the company's facilities, which has a 1633m2 occupancy area, a construction area of 1325m2 and a land area of 51,764m2, representing the development of the project of 3.15 per cent of the total land area.

The project will include construction activities and the installation of a new 50tph cement grinding system and support infrastructure, such as a dosing and feeding system, as well as a horizontal ball mill with dust collector and a 3000t metal storage silo for cement. The new grinding system will generate 1000tpd of cement, increasing the plant's installed production capacity by 67 per cent.
