Maintenance service for immision control equipment of neighborhood

Lafarge Cementos, S.A.U

Areas of Activity: Environmental Quality

Sectors of Operation: Air Quality

The plant of Lafarge cement, located in Montcada i Reixac (Barcelona), Spain, emits different types of pollutants dispersed in the environment. In order to protect the environmental quality, the Generalitat de Catalunya conditioned using a new product to the implementation of a network of measuring equipment of particles, which should encompass the area of influence of their emissions.
The project includes the preventive and corrective maintenance for the proper operation of the meteorological and atmospheric pollution analyzers installed in the air monitoring stations, and the data acquisition and transmission systems to ensure that the data captured in the stations is properly transferred and integrated into the public administration data centers. This acquisition system is based on Adasa’s Ecodata software.

The analyzers included in these stations measure sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxide, ozone, carbon monoxide and suspended particulate matter, among others. The stations also monitor wind speed and direction, temperature and relative humidity, solar radiation, precipitation and atmospheric pressure..

The data obtained from these monitoring stations helps reducing the industry environmental impact and allows to comply with the European Directive 2008/50/EC on ambient air quality to contribute to a cleaner air for Europe.
