CEMENT INDUSTRY POLLUTION CONTROL MEASURES. -

Cement industry is not a water polluting industry. Only the cooling tower blowdown associated with the GCT is a source of waste water generation, which does not have much significance as a water pollutant. The waste water is treated in septic tanks or sewage treatment plants and is used for gardening, irrigation and other purposes.
