LafargeHolcim on Gasmet’s CMM system: Taking control of mercury emissions gives us peace of mind

Nov 09 2021

LafargeHolcim, the largest producer of cement in the world, usess Gasmet's Continuous Mercury Monitoring (CMM) system to a monitor mercury emissions and maintain a higher level of safety in cement production. They obtained the CMM system from RACI, a distributor of Gasmet’s systems operating in Slovenia and Croatia. A quick distributor and a reliable continuous Hg monitoring system with zero interruptions give LafargeHolcim peace of mind and future-proof visions.

Gasmet's monitoring systems are in active use all over the world – now also in Croatia. Production Engineer Ivan Marić Dagger; is responsible for emission monitoring at LafargeHolcim, a large-scale producer of cement, ready-mix concrete, aggregates, solutions, and products. He operates Gasmet’s CMM system daily and welcomes the change the device has brought to the company.

Monitoring mercury emissions results in an unprecedented level of safety

Marić Dagger; has a long industrial experience working as an engineer at production and technology departments.

“Safety is a very important value for us. That was the main reason why we got the mercury analyser, so we get that safe and secure feeling by monitoring the emissions.”

LafargeHolcim learned about the possibility of obtaining a CMM system via RACI, the Slovenian distributor of Gasmet’s devices. LafargeHolcim already had systems in place for monitoring other emissions. Taking control of mercury emissions in 2019 was an important step towards broader responsibility and a forerunner position in the industry in Croatia.

According to Marić Dagger, the CMM system is very reliable and easy to use. It indicates the level of mercury emissions without any interruptions and keeps LafargeHolcim on top of the situation. They have not faced a single unpleasant surprise in almost two years that the monitoring system has been in use.

“The product gives us exactly what we want – peace of mind. We know where we stand with our Hg emissions.” – Ivan Marić Dagger, Production Engineer, LafargeHolcim
