50% REDUCTION OF DUST EMISSIONS AT THE LODOSA FACTORY IN SPAIN

At the Lodosa site in Spain, new facilities have been brought into operation in the granulation workshop. This new equipment ensures the complete sealing of several belt conveyors and their associated dust removal systems.

They add to a first investment phase involving the installation of a baghouse filter with a capacity of 95,000 m3/H to clean the cooling fluidised bed. This enables the site to continue to reduce dust emissions drastically.

At the industrial estate site in Saint-Malo, France, a new baghouse filter has also just been installed to process the air released from the drying operation using 600 bag filters. This dust-filtered air is then directed to a spray tower inaugurated in September 2020.

Not only does this equipment contribute to a significant reduction in material loss, but it also ensures energy optimisation. Besides, it is of great interest in the recycling of our process water. All of our sites are continually seeking to make our workshops even cleaner and to improve their operations.
