Environmental protection

• We adopted environmental policies and programmes, and our operations comply with our full environmental permits.
• Our cleaning devices are very advanced.
• We follow all environmental protection measures regarding waste treatment, consumption of raw materials, replacement of dangerous substances with less dangerous ones and consumption of energy.
• We perform energy audits and regularly monitor measurements of environmental indicators. Based on the results of audits and measurements, we implement targeted measures where necessary, following the strictest standards and regulations on technology upgrades (BAT).

 

 

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.
Implementation of a project that allows us to utilise the G furnace flue gases via two heat exchangers.
• With upgrade of a cleaning device for the industry waste water we made sure  that  all of the waters are connected to the sewer system and through it to the central purification plant of the Hrastnik Commune.
• With the most advanced cleaning device for flue gasses.

 

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%.
• Cooling one part of the furnace by air that is brought into the production unit using 60 metre pipes. We also in-built three more heat exchangers into the flue gas drain in order to heat up water.
• Construction of an energy efficient machine-cooling system.
We trapped the industry waters into closed circuits, which mean that most of the water remains within the plant and is not released into the environment. The hot water flows through cooling towers, where the ventilators are equipped with frequency converters that adapt the process to the environmental temperature.
• With the most advanced cleaning device for flue gasses.
