Environmental: Lafarge Alpena Michigan Plant
The need to improve efficiency, eliminate an environmental liability, and significantly reduce kiln dust made necessary the introduction of new ingredients, taconite and flyash, to the raw mix at the Lafarge Alpena Michigan Plant. The flyash is delivered by rail car and transferred by means of a pneumatic system to a 40,000 tonne dome storage facility. The taconite is delivered by self-unloading ships through the transfer tower whose electrically operated doors allow the ship's boom to unload material in a dust free environment. It is then distributed by a tripper conveyor into a 60,000 tonne storage hall.
