Abstract

Air pollutants generated by the cement manufacturing process consist primarily of alkaline particulates from the raw and finished materials. The direct effects of cement dust pollution are the alkalization of the ecosystem and the changing of the chemical composition of soils. The priority in the cement Industry is to minimise the increase in ambient particulate levels by reducing the mass load emitted from the stacks, from fugitive emissions, and from other sources. Agricultural crops can be injured when exposed to high concentrations of various air pollutants. Injury ranges from visible markings on the foliage, to reduced growth and yield, to premature death of the plant. The development and severity of the injury depends not only on the concentration of the particular pollutant, but also on a number of other factors. The study was aimed to assess the quality status and seasonal variations of ambient air of pollutants in around JK White Cement Plant Gotan, (Rajasthan).
