WE PROTECT THE NATURE

Since the beginning of operation, Zakłady Magnezytowe “ROPCZYCE” SA has been making intensive efforts aimed at minimising interference with the natural environment.
The environmental policy is based on the principles of sustainable development and its purpose is to ensure technical and organisational conditions for limitation and monitoring of the impact of the Company’s business on its surroundings. We are firmly committed to protect the surrounding nature, human life and health, and to mitigate the effects of climate changes. We carry out investment tasks involving implementation of innovative and eco-efficient technology for production of refractory materials.
We do not exceed the allowed limits established by law in respect of individual elements of the environment.

In our Company the technical methods of environmental protection as a whole are based on the following:

  • ensuring an effective and efficient material and resource management at respective stages of production process by returning dust and defective products to production processes in the same facility, which contributes to reduced demand for raw materials and helps to limit the amount of waste generated,
  • use of high-efficiency dust-cleaning devices,
  • reducing energy consumption by using heat recovery from thermal processes,
  • making effort to improve the energy efficiency through the use of kilns cars with lower heat losses,
  • efficient and cost-effective use of water by monitoring water consumption, and through the use of closed cooling water systems,
  • maintaining machinery, equipment, and control and measurement instruments in proper operating condition,
  • departmental procedures and instructions regarding preparedness for accidents at work and failures,
  • the use of appropriate instructions for waste management

Zakłady Magnezytowe “ROPCZYCE” SA regularly takes actions related to quality, environment and health and safety at work. This is reflected in the implemented two-year quality, environment and the health and safety at work programs.

WE SEGREGATE WASTE
