  • EPA sets first national standard to reduce mercury emissions from gold production (HQ)

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is cutting emissions from gold ore processing and production facilities with a new standard that will reduce annual mercury emissions by more than 75 percent from 2007 levels. This action is one of several steps EPA is taking to reduce mercury levels in our environment, which can damage children’s developing brains and nervous systems even ...

  • Tekran 3300 Hg CEM installed at cement plant

    The efficacy of the Tekran 3300 Hg CEM has again been demonstrated with a successful installation at two Pre-Calciner cement plants in the US. The Tekran units have been in continuous operation mode for many months. Both units passed RATA validation and met all PS 12 A and Part 75/60 requirements. Both units successfully capture valid data during mill-off and mill-on conditions, in spite of the ...

  • EPA sets first national limits to reduce mercury and other toxic emissions from cement plants (HQ)

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is issuing final rules that will protect Americans’ health by cutting emissions of mercury, particle pollution and other harmful pollutants from Portland cement manufacturing, the third-largest source of mercury air emissions in the United States.
