We congratulate Paul on his new role with the STA," said Dave Shenton, Tarmac Cement and Lime’s Senior Environment Manager.

It also highlights the priority approach Tarmac has taken to emissions compliance, especially over recent years with new challenging legislation coming in.”

“As Chairman of this group, I will represent all the process operators’ topics/issues and collate information and data," added Mr Firth. "At the same time, I will be representing Tarmac’s position on emissions monitoring and encouraging all members to discuss case study experiences to ensure we are all working to the best operating standards.”
