Redecam’s Proposals Manager, José Miguel Angolemme, wrote an editorial for the January 2016 edition of International Cement Review about the need for cement manufacturers to review their air pollution control systems to ensure compliance.
“As the environmental and health effects of air pollution from particulate matter (PM) become more intensely researched and widely documented, an increasing number of governments are introducing and/or tightening limits on such emissions. For instance, limits on PM10 and PM2.5 emissions have been imposed in Australia, Canada, China, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea and the USA and EU. Going forward, United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) Member States will have to meet stricter emission cuts, including the further reduction of PM2.5 by 2020 and beyond. Even stricter limits are also being discussed in other countries.”
