SUSTAINABILITY: Lafarge Africa restates commitment to environmental sustainability

Lafarge Africa Plc has expressed its commitment to the promotion of environmental sustainability.

In a statement obtained by The Daily, www.thedaily-ng.com, Rachael Ezembakwe, Head of Health, Safety and Environment, Lafarge Africa Plc, stated: “We continuously upgrade 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.

“We are fully aware of the environmental impact of our operations, particularly on our host communities. As such, we carried out a comprehensive social impact assessment in our Ewekoro plant in the year 2020, resulting in a robust action plan to reduce dust emissions.

 

“The implementation of the action plan involved changing the Electrostatic Precipitator (ESP) used at the plant to a bag house filter, in addition to other significant adjustments to our production activities, over a period of six (6) months. A robust maintenance system was also put in place for the dust control equipment at the Plant.”
