Lebanon: Chekka inaugurates new bag filter
26 June 2017

Cimenterie Nationale has inaugurated the new bag filter at its Chekka plant. The new filter will reduce SOx and NOx emissions to 15mg/m3, well below the international norm of 50mg/m3.

At the ceremony, which was attended by more than 200 distinguished guests, Cimenterie Nationale’s CEO, Pierre Doumet, said the new filter was testimony to “a permanent modernisation” of the works, a plan started two-and-a-half years ago by the company.

However, the US$200m project is still awaiting the required permits of an industrial conveyor belt to transport the raw material to the plant, two clinker and petcoke storage halls, a crusher large enough to replace the current five. In addition, the plant also wants to double its kiln capacity.
