Cement Manufacturers to Buy Emission Monitors for Compliance with EPA's MACT Rule

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. - (OTC:CTEI) Cemtrex Inc. (www.cemtrex.com) announced today that it is experiencing increased level of inquiries in its emission monitors from cement companies. On July 18, 2012, the EPA had proposed amendments to the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for the Cement Manufacturing Industry and set a compliance deadline date of September 9, 2015. With this compliance date fast approaching Cement manufacturers are preparing to install monitoring instruments that would measure Mercury (Hg), Hydrogen Chloride (HCl), Particulate Matter (PM) and Total Hydro Carbons (THC) discharging from their stack.  

Cemtrex is well positioned to offer a complete monitoring package enabling these facilities to meet the compliance targets at minimum cost. The Mercury CEMS that Cemtrex have installed in the past at Cement Kilns, are specifically designed for the complex cement manufacturing process since other competitive monitoring systems in the market today are found to have issues with over reporting of mercury emissions. The Cemtrex systems have passed several site approvals already. The back scatter technology that Cemtrex employs for PM Monitoring is also ideally suitable for Cement operations and offers both opacity and mass concentration measurements as an added benefit. The HCl and THC are combined in Cemtrex's IntelliCEMS package that also seamlessly interfaces with the Hg and PM CEMS to meet the Cement industry MACT compliance objectives. Cemtrex estimates that each system will cost approximately $0.50 million and there are about  156 kilns that will be affected by this EPA MACT  Rule in USA.
