Air Pollutant Emissions Assessment of a Ready-Mix Concrete Plant

This project consisted of an environmental impact analysis of a ready mix concrete batching operation in San Juan, Puerto Rico that was housed entirely inside a self-standing, enclosed structure. CA was retained to assess the particulate matter and fugitive dust emissions to the atmosphere resulting from industrial activities including ready mix concrete operations. Investigation into the assessment of the conditions included two site visits to the batching plant, discussions with personnel from the ready mix concrete company, and review and evaluation of documents such as specifications, industry standards, engineering reports, relevant published literature, and local regulations. With the investigation mentioned, CA was able to assess whether or not the ready mix concrete batching operations were compliant with environmental standards for atmospheric dust emissions.
