Carolinas Cement

Titan America could break ground on a cement plant in Castle Hayne as early as 2015. 

A Titan Cement plant would bring about 48 jobs to New Hanover County – not the 720 originally quoted by an earlier economic impact study.  That’s according to a new analysis paid for by the North Carolina Coastal Federation, an environmental advocacy group.

Just as environmental groups expected to see stricter requirements for emissions from cement plants, the Environmental Protection Agency is now considering a proposal to relax the rules.
