Description: Caption:
This 2009 image depicts a cement processing plant located in Midlothian, Texas. The manufacturing of cement demands close scrutiny, for at all phases of its production, one encounters a possible negative environmental impact, including the release of airborne particulates, and exhaust gasses.
Additional Information:
Quite often, residents live in very close proximity to these plants, which makes it that much more imperative for these industries to be extremely careful as to how they implement their waste disposal protocols, and emissions through their stacks.
