Environmental Protection Authority investigates Irish Cement over dust cloud

Print this page

Ireland: The Environmental Protection Authority is investigating Irish Cement’s plant in Limerick following an alleged ‘blowout’ of dust from the plant in early April 2017 that effected parts of Limerick city. The cement producer said that it had repaired a clinker conveyor following an inspection, according to the Irish Examiner newspaper. Previously Irish Cement admitted to dust emissions in 2015 that led to it compensating local residents with free car washes. The company is also appealing to the government to allow it to burn alternative fuels at the site despite local opposition.
