Swedish court denies Cementa’s leave to appeal Gotland quarries closure decision

Print this page

Sweden: Cementa will not be able to appeal a land and environmental court’s ruling preventing it from using its quarries on the island of Gotland. The Swedish supreme court has ruled that the subsidiary of Germany-based HeidelbergCement has no basis for appeal. Its previous application to extend mining activities at the sites until 2041 failed due to shortcomings in its environmental impact assessments. The quarries supply cement production at the company’s Slite cement plant in Gotland.
