Cement is the main ingredient of concrete, which is the most common building material in the world. Cement industry is one of the biggest CO2 emission producers mainly due to the huge production capacities and calcination process, which is important part of the cement production.
In cement plants, the flue gas generally includes carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrous oxides (NOx), sulfur dioxide (SO2), mercury and dust. SO2 emissions are mostly derived from the raw material, whereas the CO2 emissions are related to the used fuel and efficiency of the combustion process. Cement manufacturers need to monitor these emissions continuously according to local emission regulations.
What you need to know about mercury emissions monitoring
Gasmet Technologies has published a new White Paper on the monitoring of mercury emissions to air from industrial processes. This paper focuses on summarizing the changes in measurement requirements and emission limits for Large Combustion Plants (LCPs), produced by The Commission’s Joint Research Center, and adopted by European Commission. After reading this White Paper you will learn what LCP BREF means in practice and how to prepare, who it concerns, the new continuous measurement requirements, and the new emission limits.

“Individual gas readings are displayed in almost real-time in the control room,” says Plant Manager Andrew Corbyn
