Titan Cement

Titan is a fitting name for an industrial project that would have a potentially titanic negative
impact on the environment of Southeastern North Carolina. 
Titan America, parent company of Carolinas Cement LLC and part of the international Titan Cement Company based in Greece, wants to build a $450 million cement plant and limestone mining operation on approximately 3,300 acres along the Northeast Cape Fear River, north of Wilmington, North Carolina.
