LafargeHolcim subsidiary in Germany, Holcim (Deutschland) GmbH, has completed the construction of a new SCR plant at its Beckum cement plant. Trial operations will completed by the end of the year with the aim of going into regular operation by the start of 2019.

The new €14.2 million facility will help to ensure that the Beckum plant complies with new stricter emissions limits that come into force next year. The official opening of the plant took place on 7 July and was attended by representatives of local government, management, the project team and local press.

SCR technology converts NOX and ammonium hydroxide, which are contained in the cement plant’s kiln exhaust gas, into nitrogen and water. The technology was supplied by Yara.

The new plant will ensure the emissions from the Beckum plant are significantly reduced in future, said Helmut Reiterer, Beckum Plant Manager, adding that the investment represented a clear commitment to the Beckum location.
