Castle Cement in the papers

Mike Eberlin who is Managing Director of Castle Cement talks about the companies CO2 reduction with the introduction of the new kiln. Castle have been recently been found guilty for exceeding dioxin emissions to the tune of £99,000.

Castle Cement are always up for a good kicking around the floor at the Penyffordd Community Meetings. They are however investing heavy money to stop rogue cement from leaving the factory site.

I've never really warmed to the Welsh Environment Agency but recent prosecutions of Castle Cement have impressed.

The proof of this can be seen in next to no cement on our cars with the exception of 2 fall outs this year. This is a vast improvement on say 15 years ago.

What Penyffordd people need to be aware of is the emissions through the incineration of waste products. I read something some time ago to the effect that this type of incineration to produce substances like cement have less arduous emission regulations than an incinerator specifically used to burn industrial waste.
More research needed. Perhaps the taller stack will take stuff passed us...................
