CRH’s UK subsidiary, Tarmac, recently organized an event to discuss preparations for future dust emissions legislation within the cement industry. Hosted by Tarmac Cement and Lime Division’s Senior Environmental Manager, Dave Senton, the workshop brought together experts from the industry’s regulator and trade association, as well as from within Tarmac and CRH.
“With legislation changes, dust emission limits have become more challenging with future changes presenting many technical challenges for all parties involved,”’ said Shenton.
Representatives from the Environment Agency, Mineral Products Association (MPA), and specialist testing and measurement companies attended the event, alongside environment coordinators from Tarmac and CRH cement plants across the UK and Europe.
In addition to presentations, the workshop also included practical team-based exercises. One such exercises entitles ‘how much is 1 mg’ helped to demonstrate the difficulties of dust measurement at very low levels.
“It was an extremely useful event,” said Dr Rebecca Hooper, Senior Advisor on Energy and Environment at the MPA. “It was great to see an Environment Agency representative presenting, as well as industry experts. The hands-on elements of the day were really helpful in providing context for the presentations.”
