Lehigh Cement officials formally commissioned a 20,000-metric-ton, multi-compartment, environmentally friendly silo at the company’s Leeds, Ala., mill late last year with an open house. With a 79-ft. outside diameter, the 239-ft. structure stores the operation’s three product lines: Type I/Type II general purpose cement; Type V specialty cement, used mainly for concrete pipe production; and Type C1157 HE, a limestone-based powder suitable for mix designs in infrastructure projects.
