  • Top 4 Environmental Compliance Issues at Concrete Plants

    29/04/2011· Surely a concrete plant doesn't release toxins, right? Well sort of. I'm going to assume your operation has an air permit, which allows your facility to discharge a small amount of air pollution (in the form of cement dust from your silos). Well it's no secret that cement contains some pretty nasty stuff in it, like lead and mercury, even if only in very, very small amounts. The problem is, if you're a large facility, using a lot of cement, a lot of pollution

  • Concrete plant Wikipedia

    Municipalities, especially in urban or residential areas, have been concerned at the pollution by concrete batching plants. The absence of suitable dust collection and filter systems in cement silos or at the truck loading point is the major source of particulate matter emission in the air. The loading point is a large emission point for dust pollution, so many concrete producers utilize central dust collectors to contain this dust. Notably, many transit mix (dry loading) plants create significantly more dust pollution than central

  • ‘What’s Up With that Sherman Concrete Plant?’

    10/05/2019· A batch plant — or batching plant — is just the name of a facility where those ingredients are combined to make concrete. What’s the main air pollution concern with a concrete plant? The primary pollutant of concern is particulate matter, or PM. Also called particle pollution, PM is made up of tiny solid particles and liquid droplets in the air. PM comes in many different shapes and sizes and can

  • Ways to control dust of concrete batching plant

    04/09/2017· As the raw materials of the batching plant are powder and aggregates, the concrete mixing plant will certainly cause some dust pollution during the production process. When this discharged dust is not controlled for a long time, it leads to severe dust pollution and the environment will be affected badly. Therefore, dust control measures are considered crucial. Here we can discuss on how to effectively
