The Cement Sustainability Initiative (CSI) organised three sessions on air emissions monitoring and control for its ten members in India. The events were hosted by Dalmia Bharat Cement, ACC Limited and UltraTech Cement. More than 100 environmental, process and technical employees from the cement companies took part in the training sessions. These were conducted by senior cement professionals, as well as experts from OEMs such as Alstom, Chemtrol, Environment SA and Ion Filtra.
Among the topics covered were:
- Fugitive emissions control.
- SOX and NOX emissions control (primary and secondary measures).
- Upgrades and performance improvement of ESPs/bag filters/hybrid filters to meet new environment regulations.
- Design, operation and maintenance of state-of-the-art continuous emissions monitoring systems (CEMs) and continuous ambient air quality monitoring stations (CAAQMS) for online reporting of stack emissions.
The training sessions were organised with the aim of improving internal competencies following the Indian Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change’s notification on emission standards for particulate matter, sulphur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide.
