Tanzania – Bureau of Standards proposes cement factory emissions standard
Published: 24 November 2003

The Tanzania Bureau of Standards (TBS) is proposing a standard on cement factory emissions to stop them from polluting the environment. There are about eight potential pollutants from cement and lime factories that require monitoring according to the proposal.

A draft standard was discussed during a recent meeting of the Technical Committee on Air Quality. The document is based on East African Cement Producers Association limits which are comparable to EU specifications and will be presented to the National Environment Management Divisional Standards Committee.
