Controlling Mercury in Cement Manufacture
The manufacture of cement may emit mercury into the atmosphere if mercury is present in the raw materials or the fuel. To reduce emissions, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) established the National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollution or (NESHAP) with the first mercury emission limit set in 2006 at 41µg/dscm at 7% oxygen.
Economic Evaluation of Projects
The most common way to assess the economics of a project is the discounted net present value (NPV) of cash flows. Before budgeting a new project, a company must assess the overall level of project risk relative to normal business operations. Higher-risk projects require a larger discount rate than the company’s historical weighted average cost of capital (WACC) and vice-versa for lower risk investments.
