Cemex to invest in dust abatement system, UK
Published: 21 March 2011

Cemex is to spend UK£4m on a state-of-the-art technology abatement system for its South Ferriby plant, UK. Work on the new plant, located on the south bank of the Humber with a capacity of 0.75Mta, is being seen as a sign that that the company, which employs 150 people at South Ferriby, is coming out of the recession.

One of the two kilns there – Kiln No 2 – is 44 years old and has been out of service for more than a year due to the economic slowdown.

A spokeswoman for Cemex said: "This is indeed a major investment. While the demolishing of the old precipitator has now been completed, the new installation will not be finished until October time.

"The fabrication is currently taking place off-site. This new, state-of-the-art filter will not only comply with existing dust emissions legislation, but also future legislation."
