Help Stop Boulder's #1 polluter!
What: The CEMEX Lyons cement plant is the #1 polluter in Boulder County, emitting 357,000 tons of CO2 per year and accounts for about 7% of the entire County’s emissions. CEMEX Lyons is a 54-year old coal-fired plant, permitted with 1960s air quality standards, that produces serious environmental concerns that go far beyond their greenhouse gas emissions.
How: The very material changes made to CEMEX’s operation after the closure of their adjacent mine is what gives the State of Colorado and Boulder County the power, and obligation, to terminate their grandfathered status and ultimately decommission the plant. Help us kick start that process!
