Live Kiln 6 Data

The two graphs below give a pictorial interpretation of kiln environmental performance; they should be read in conjunction with each other.

The upper graph displays the stack particulate mass concentration in relation to our licence limit of 50mg/m3. The second is the stack particulates mass flow rate. Both charts are updated every 20 minutes.

Notes on the emissions measurements

Stack particulate mass concentration is measured in milligrams per cubic metre (mg/m3). It describes the amount of dust in every cubic metre of air in the stack, at the point of measurement. Stack particulate mass flow rate is measured in grams per second (g/s). It is the product of the stack particulate mass concentration and the stack air flow and is an indicator of the amount of particulates exiting the stack.

It can be concluded that the lowest probability of environmental impact is when the stack particulate mass concentration and the stack flow are both low, the reverse is also true. However there may also be low probability for environmental impact when stack particulate mass concentration is high but the stack particulate mass flow is low. Stack particulate mass concentration and stack particulate mass flow should be interpreted together to obtain a more comprehensive understanding of the likelihood of environmental impact from the stacks.

If you have any concerns regarding this data or want to know what actions are being taken in relation to particular events shown on the CEMS graphs, please contact us via our feedback hotline on 1800 156 826.

Please note: To maintain accuracy, the monitors conduct a daily system calibration. This occurs at approximately 12:15 on K5 and 12:45 on K6. The graph will exhibit a spike in the data that can reach up to 346mg/m3. These spikes are not a reflection of actual emissions.

Kiln 5 & 6 Baghouses Complete

After three years the $42 million project to build baghouses on Kiln 5 and 6 is complete. Both baghouses are operational and reducing emissions from the Munster plant. more >>
