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.

LICENCE RENEWAL – October 2017

Our current Birkenhead EPA licence is due to expire in October 2017. We are currently working with the EPA on new licence requirements, with initial meetings particularly focussing on air quality. As a local resident, we encourage you to let us know how you feel we can improve our new licence conditions. You can provide your feedback via the ‘Contact Us’ page. You can also view our existing licence and initiatives on this site. more >>
