No cement business can afford to overlook its environmental obligations. As well as the legal obligations, public perceptions of cement manufacturers are critical to their business performance. It is now an accepted fact that good environmental performance means good business performance.
For example, one of the key factors in a successful alternative fuels programme is a good relationship with the local community that lives around the cement plant. These communities will be much more accepting of alternative fuels if the plant has a good record of environmental performance and has dealt with any environmental incidents with professionalism and transparency.
CPI can provide assistance and recommendations in the optimisation of all emissions protection equipment such as electrostatic precipitators and bag filters. We also have experience in emissions reduction technologies for pollutants such as SO2 and NOx, and extensive experience of environmental legislation and permitting processes around the world.
CPI's extensive experience in plant operations and product quality enables us to audit cement plant operations for CO2 emissions. We can set achievable targets and advise on strategies for minimising greenhouse gas emissions, such as alternative fuels programmes, blended cements and efficiency improvement projects.
