Unformatted text preview: eld in 2009. Dust emis­ 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 operating permits. Recalculating the specific emissions on the basis of the equity held by...
