Project scope and objective
ABCO was established in 1999, to produce Type 1 Portland cement, which is general-purpose cement. The project involves the construction of a plant with a nominal capacity of 390,000 tons per year (tpy) at a new manufacturing facility near the town of Hatillo in the Province of Azua, approximately 98 km southwest of Santo Domingo. The production process will consist of grinding imported clinker with small amounts (5%) of locally produced gypsum. The location of the plant has been selected because the land on which the plant will be installed includes a high quality limestone deposit, should it be feasible to produce clinker in the future. Additionally, the Old Port of Azua is 25 km from the plant, thus facilitating the import of clinker.
Production of cement in a clinker mill involves grinding clinker with additives; and storing and bagging the finished product. The process produces dust that is mostly captured and recycled. The generation of fine particulates is inherent in all stages of the process.
Gases such as nitrogen oxide (NOx) and sulfur oxide (SOx) are formed from the combustion of fuel in the generation of power for the process. In the case of the Project, gas oil and fuel oils will be used as fuel. The SOx emissions are within local standards and modeling will be done to determine that they comply with international standards.
