Dust Control


Dust Control

Cemstone utilizes a high performance Tennant Centurion sweeper vehicle to minimize fugitive dust at its metro area ready mix and bagging plants.  The vacuum-controlled sweeper system is designed to meet strict requirements for particulate matter (PM-10) emissions, a common source of pollution in the concrete manufacturing industry.  The efficient, dry operation cuts down on water use and allows the sweeper to function year-round.  The sweeper also acts as a best management practice (BMP) for storm water pollution prevention by collecting dust and debris that may otherwise enter storm drains.  Investing in advanced environmental tools like the Centurion sweeper is essential to Cemstone’s commitment to environmental stewardship.
