Lhoist to Double Lime Capacity at Texas Plant

Lhoist North America Inc. (LNA) announced its plan to add lime production capacity in Clifton, Texas, by adding two kilns that will double the Clifton location’s current capacity. 

Continued population growth in the South has created increased demand for LNA’s calcium-based products, with customers having announced new steel mills, LNG export facilities, lithium hydroxide production plants, and water treatment facilities. 

These expansions in multiple markets require lime both in the initial infrastructure build and in the longer term production processes. LNA’s corresponding capacity expansion, along with recently installed new lime milling capacity, will enable it to grow with its customers and continue to deliver them exceptional value.

LNA has filed permits for this expansion and plans to begin construction as soon as the permits are issued.  The new production capacity is expected to be commissioned in 2026.

A subsidiary of the Lhoist Group, Lhoist North America is a leading supplier of lime, limestone and other mineral products in the North American marketplace. With its U.S. headquarters in Fort Worth, Texas, Lhoist North America employs 1,700 people at more than 50 facilities throughout the United States and Canada.
