Třinec ironworks to decrease dust emissions In 2018, the steel producer Třinecké železárny is implementing ecological projects worth 900 million CZK. Investments in de-dusting in raw material processing started last year will be finished. They include two projects of the central vacuum collector at both agglomerations, and the construction of a filtering station at the slag mill. Within the framework of the ecological project of the Operational Programme “Environment,” two more projects, exceeding 700 million CZK, were approved for the upcoming period. Třinecké železárny has invested considerable sums in measures improving air pollution in recent years. The greatest part of the investments (2,600 million CZK) was spent in 2013–2015 on facilities to de-dust the largest and most-polluting operations. These measures reduced total dust emissions from Třinecké železárny by app. 75%. Třinecké železárny signed a voluntary agreement with the government of the Moravian-Silesian Region and the Ministry of the Environment to annually pay for curative
stays for children in the Tatra Mountains, totalling 1,500 million CZK in addition to the aforementioned investments in new technologies. Another 3 million CZK will be spent spent on cleaning the streets and another 3 million on the maintenance and planting of urban greenery. “We are fully aware of the impact that the industrial production has on the air and environment of citizens of our city. That is why we want the plants to use the best existing technologies to ecologize their operation, as well as provide many other measures to improve the situation,” says CEO Jan Czudek.
