Gossman Consulting, Inc. provides clients with the full range of effort necessary to determine cement kiln emissions, and what those emissions are to the environment. Although an obvious source of emissions is the stack many other sources exist. These can include CKD landfills, fuels and ancillary equipment, the clinker cooler, raw materials, etc. To properly investigate these emissions requires not only an understandingof the process but also the regulations and how they apply to the source, as well as the theory and practice of source sampling and analysis. Our experienced team of professionals and partners have determined the regualtory requirements, written the appropriate test plans, participated in and overseen the execution of these plans, and monitored and evaluated the quality of the data for a large number of devices under a variety of conditions. GCI's experience executing the functions in source sampling and analysis provides our team with a unique background and knowledge of emissions from cement kilns and the potential problems that can exist. This experience is invaluable to our clients in aquiring the appropriate and realistic quality data needed for submittal to state or federal agencies, or to the public, or to industry lobbying groups, or simply for internal decision making.
