Eagle Materials will modernize and expand its Mountain Cement Co. plant in Laramie, Wyo. and add a northern Colorado terminal, underscoring a commitment to being the cementitious materials supplier of choice in a region encompassing the Denver and Salt Lake City markets. Work scheduled for completion in the second half of 2026 will increase the Wyoming mill’s annual clinker potential by 50 percent, to 1.2 million tons, and lower production costs an estimated 25 percent. Kiln upgrades will include provisions to replace solid fuels with lower cost alternatives or natural gas, resulting in a projected 20 percent decline in carbon dioxide intensity per ton of output versus present levels.
