Concrete batch plants are environmentally responsible
A standard concrete plant permit limits particulate matter (such as dust) to less than 5 pounds per day for the entire facility
. In fact, all elements of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality’s air permitting process have been developed through rigorous data analysis that incorporates modeling, sampling, and monitoring to be sure that human health and the environment are protected. And many facilities go above and beyond to use best management practices to further mitigate and manage airborne emissions, such as perimeter vegetation, work practices, and fencing enhancements.
