Firm Restates Commitment to Promote Eco-friendly Practices Throughout Operations   

Lafarge Africa Plc has reaffirmed its dedication to promoting environmentally sustainable practices throughout its operations.

“We are continuously upgrading our operating models and strategy through extensive investments in research and innovation. In order to comply with global standards and contribute to building a safer planet, we successfully replaced our dust emission control device in our Ewekoro Plant I, from the Electrostatic Precipitator (ESP) to a more modern and effective system, the ‘Bag House’ dust collection system.” This was disclosed by Rachael Ezembakwe, Head of Health, Safety and Environment, Lafarge Africa Plc.

Furthermore, Ezembakwe noted that “the dust emissions at our Ewekoro Plant have since remained below the regulatory limit of 50mg/Nm3. The emission levels are also monitored real time to ensure that it remains within acceptable limits, and validated by the National Environmental standard and Regulations Agency (NESREA) during its periodic monitoring inspection of our Ewekoro Plant. Quarterly monitoring exercise by government accredited agencies are also conducted at the Plant, and the reports of the inspection are submitted to our regulators.”
