Abstract

Aerosols emitted by antropogenic activity are in relationship with their emission source and exhibit distinguishable characteristics (size, metal concentration and density) that can often univocally identify the source. Nevertheless, different processes can characterize industrial plants that produce the same product. Because of this, dusts emitted by the same source can have different chemical composition and physical properties. This paper reports the analysis carried out on dusts emitted by two cement plants that produce Portland cement according to
