• We adopted environmental policies and programmes, and our operations comply with our full environmental permits.
In the tableware production unit we are using 55 % less water, releasing 75 % less NOx, 35 % less dust particles and almost 30 % less CO2. We achieved that with following projects:
• Instalment of a technologically advanced melting furnace – G furnace. This furnace uses advanced technology of natural gas combustion with pure oxygen and is much more energy efficient as well as more powerful.
In packaging glass production unit we reduced the NOx emissions by 25 %, the CO2 emissions for 10 % and the communal water usage by 40 %. We achieved that with following projects:
• Increasing the capacity of the melting furnace in the packaging glass production unit, while lowering the energy needed for melting by 16%.
