The project site is in the Mineral Resource (MR) General Plan land use designation and the Mineral Resource (MR) zone district.
This request by Lehigh Cement West, Inc. is for an amendment to Use Permit 297-78 for Lehigh Cement West for the construction of a Fortera™ ReCarb™ Plant. The Fortera™ ReCarb™ process is a proprietary process that will utilize a portion of the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from the existing Lehigh cement kiln stack as feedstock to produce a Fortera proprietary patented product called Reactive Calcium Carbonate (RCC). The facility would produce approximately 15,000 tons of supplemental cementitious material over a time span of approximately 1.5 years, and then would be decommissioned. This facility would not increase the production of the existing cement plant but would operate as a separate, temporary facility. The facility would be constructed within the existing facility boundary on APN 307-030-002 located along the southwest border of the parcel. Approximately 0.8 acres of disturbed land currently in use by Lehigh Cement West, Inc. for equipment storage would be graded for the installation of the facility. Approximately one half-acre (0.5+/- acres) of impervious surfaces would be added to the project site. Consistent with the existing site, the facility would operate 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. Work hours may be reduced by planned and unplanned outages. Access to the facility site would be through the existing main gate of the Lehigh site located along Wonderland Boulevard. A height exception from the maximum structural height of 45 feet is being requested for four structures. The tallest structure would be 75 feet in height, with additional structures at 60 feet, 54 feet and 50 feet in height, with the CO2 gas connection proposed at a height of 50 feet.
