Environmental projects 2012
RHI continues to invest in measures to reduce emissions and look for innovative solutions that minimize both energy and resource consumption.
In 2012, the most significant investments in the environment were related to the installation of filter systems to reduce emissions and to increase the energy efficiency of the rotary kilns at the plants in Breitenau and Hochfilzen in Austria. Dust emissions were decreased significantly and gas consumption was reduced.
Moreover, measures were taken in dedusting and improved control engineering in Porsgrunn (Norway) and exhaust gas routing and dedusting were improved at the rotary kiln in Eskisehir (Turkey).
In 2013, RHI will implement further projects to reduce emissions at the production sites in Trieben (Austria), Mainzlar (Germany) and Falconer (USA).
