The Riverside Cement Company has shut down seven, half-century-old kilns at its Oro Grande plant. In their place is a single, state-of-the-art kiln.

The EPA’s Charles Aldred says there’s been a dramatic reduction of NOx emissions.

“The new kiln at Oro Grande represents a 1500tpa reduction in emissions of nitrogen oxide when compared to original seven kilns.”
