Expansion plans upheld for Mitsubishi Cement terminal

Long Beach City Council has upheld the expansion plans for Mitsubishi Cement’s Port of Long Beach Terminal in California, after environmental groups appealed against the approval of its environmental impact report. The appeal was based on concerns over air quality. The expanded terminal’s approval is already subject to 5-yearly checks to make sure the company is using state-of-the-art emissions control technology.

The company still needs approval from the Southern California Air Quality Management District and will need to complete various engineering and other tasks before construction can begin. It is expected that work on the storage silos will begin in about a year.

Mitsubishi Cement is experiencing the benefits of the upturn in the US economy, and is reportedly sold out at present. The terminal in question has been out of service since lack of demand led to its closure in 2010. Once up and running again, it will accommodate an additional 40 000 t of storage as well as upgraded loading equipment.
