sions at most of our facilities were much below
the limits set by the environmental terms and
conditions of their operating permits.
Specific emissions calculated on the basis of
the equity held by the TITAN Group in 2006, the
year that the Group’s target was set, reached
98.3g/ton clinker, an increase of 18.3% com
pared to the previous year. Although last year’s
performance marks a set back compared to the
trend achieved the previous years, the Group
target remains focused on achieving an overall
reduction of dust emissions by 65% until 2015
compared to 2003. SOx Combustion at high temperatures is a source
of ΝOx creation. Scientific studies have linked
ΝOx emissions to the creation of acid rain and
smog. The presence of sulphur (S) in raw materials is
the primary cause of SOx emissions which are
directly linked with the appearance of acid rain.
It is therefore vital to keep these emissions as
low as possible. In 2009 the Group’s ΝOx emissions were 20,767
tons and specific emissions were 1,982g/ton
clinker, based on equity held last year. As with
dust, these emissions were within the limits
stipulated by the environmental terms of the
Recalculating the specific emissions on the basis
