The main environmental issues associated with cement production are consumption of raw materials and energy use as well as emissions in air. Noise emissions occur throughout the whole cement manufacturing process from preparing and processing raw materials, from the clinker burning and cement production process, from material storage as well as from the dispatch and shipping of the final products. The heavy machinery and large fans used in cement manufacturing process can give rise to noise emissions· Cement Plants are required to comply with reduction standards in compliance with national legislation, and noise surveys are being conducted and evaluated.
Having this in mind, A TITAN Group Usje Cement Plant in Skopje, following their strong commitment to high environmental performance and Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainable Development Policy in 2013/14 have engaged an AMBICON Lab (Faculty of Natural and Technical Sciences) from Stip, to conduct a Noise Control Study in order to identify noise sources within cement plant and marl quarry, determine their impacts on nearby residents and develop noise control/protection strategies. During the past 3 years, the Usje Cement plant completes most of the noise control measures proposed in this Study and follow-up study during 2016/2017 was conducted in order to asses effectiveness of measures taken. This paper presents the outcomes of noise reduction measures taken.
