Under an agreement with U.S Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Department of Justice and New York State, Lafarge North America Inc. has agreed to fund $1.5 million in projects to reduce air pollution in the community surrounding its Ravena, N.Y., cement plant. The agreement also provides Lafarge additional time to reduce air pollution from the cement plant. A March 2010 settlement between the federal government and Lafarge North America Inc. resolved violations of the Clean Air Act at Lafarge’s 13 cement plants in the United States.
