Dust Monitoring

We are aware of community concerns regarding dust (particulates) within the local area and are proactively seeking to reduce emissions from our Birkenhead Plant through a range of improvement actions and control measures.

We undertake regular monitoring to identify and report on both stack and ambient air emissions from the Birkenhead Plant to ensure compliance with our licence under the Environment Protection Act 1993 and to establish opportunities for process or mechanical improvements to reduce emissions.

Additionally, kiln stacks 4A and 4B on the Birkenhead site are continuously monitored and the results are summarised as one hourly averages based on 10 minute averages for reporting purposes.
