Jordan Cement to curb emissions
Published: 07 June 2005

According to local news reports, the Jordan Cement Factories Company (JCFC) will inaugurate a $3.5m new dust filter on June 8, in an attempt to rectify the environmental situation of its Fuheis factory, according to a JCFC official. The new filter, installed on one of the Fuheis production lines, will replace the old and ineffective de-dusting system and utilise advanced technology to reduce dust emission. The new filter will improve the environmental situation at the Fuheis plant and virtually eliminate dust emission into the atmosphere. The dust content emitted by the new filter will be less than 20 mg/Nm3, well under the legal level of 250 mg/Nm3 permitted by law.
