Slag Raw Material Storage Bunker Completed

A three-sided concrete bunker to store up to 50,000 tons of slag (a raw material additive used in cement) was completed in early 2016. The bunker has a minimum height of 5 metres and is made up of more than 1,500 concrete interlocked blocks.

The Bunker has significantly reduced fugitive dust impacts. The slag is now well contained and not affected by weather conditions, while loading and unloading activities are now conducted within the confines of the bunker.

The bunkering system is also located directly adjacent the slag dryer, which has significantly reduced traffic movements. The entire area is concrete/hard surfaced, which results in less dust from vehicles movements and means the surface can be regularly cleaned by site sweeper.
