Heidelberg Materials' largest CCUS project globally


Mitchell Plant - CCUS

The Mitchell K4 project included the construction and completion of a new cement plant by Heidelberg Materials, replacing the former that had an over 50-year legacy in Mitchell, Indiana. The new plant utilizes the latest in technology and environmental controls to better support our existing customer base in the Midwest while also expanding our reach in this growing market. Heidelberg Materials' dedication to advancing viable carbon capture projects, a cornerstone of our ambitious sustainability objectives, and exemplifies our commitment to a Net Zero carbon future.


Growing With Indiana

During the past several years, Heidelberg Materials- formerly operating as Lehigh Cement, has worked with local and state officials to improve infrastructure surrounding the plant, which ultimately will benefit the surrounding community and new facility. This includes a road connecting the plant to IN-37, alleviating truck congestion from the center of town. Overall logistics will also change to accommodate additional rail activity to handle increased cement shipments from the plant.


Building Better And Stronger

Heidelberg Materials is committed to operating in a safe and responsible manner while manufacturing and supplying sustainable cement products for our customers in Indiana and the Midwest market.

Carbon Capture Utilization & Storage At Mitchell

A key component of our strategy for the future is to assess the potential to capture and store carbon dioxide, or CO2.  This is essential for fulfilling our commitment to reaching net zero by 2050 at the latest, and to leading the industry in CO2 reduction.  Heidelberg Materials North America has received funding from the U.S. Department of Energy to advance the integration of full-scale carbon capture, transport, and storage at the new state-of-the-art cement plant in Mitchell, Indiana. The funding will build on prior funding that has been awarded by the DOE toward successfully completing the Front-End Engineering and Design (FEED) work necessary to verify the project’s technical feasibility.
