Zaporozhye Dnerospetsstal was paid a working visit by representatives of the standing commission on ecology, protection of subsoil and rational use of natural resources of the Zaporozhye regional council.
During the visit, the delegation visited the press-forging shop of the plant. The deputies of the regional council and the head of the environmental safety department of the Department for environmental safety of the Zaporozhye city council, Yulia Ivanova, made sure that the metallurgical enterprise complies with environmental legislation, invests heavily in equipment and minimizes the impact of production on the environment of the region.
According to Igor Logozinsky, Technology and Quality Director of Dneprospetsstal, from 2014 to 2018 a large-scale modernization of heating and heat treatment furnaces took place in the press-forging shop of the plant. All modernized furnaces are equipped with modern two-level control systems based on controller technology from Siemens AG - the world leader in integrated automation for various industries.
The use of modern gas-burning devices with an optimal gas /air ratio in the furnaces made it possible to achieve better fuel combustion up to 90% and reduce the level of harmful emissions into the atmosphere.
Due to the use of economical gas burner impulse devices, automation and the use of modern refractory materials, emissions of sulfur dioxide are reduced by 100%, carbon dioxide by 20%, nitrogen oxide by 15%.
Dneprospetsstal continues to implement environmental projects, in particular, the modernization of furnace units.
As a result of the visit, the deputies discussed with representatives of the plant's environmental service changes in the field of environmental monitoring, the implementation of the points of the Memorandum, which was signed between the authorities and enterprises of the region.
“The environmental commission's schedule includes visits to industrial enterprises of the city and region. I remember the press-forging shop of Dneprospetsstal back in the 90s. Now the situation has changed dramatically. Thanks to the modernization of production, the fulfillment of environmental requirements, the workshop and production have become much cleaner and safer, "said the head of the environmental commission Igor Chumachenko.
Yulia Ivanova, Head of the Environmental Safety Department of the Department for Environmental Safety of the Zaporozhye City Council, also noted positive changes at the Enterprise.
“Since 2017, Dneprospetsstal has been taking an active part in the implementation of the Memorandum signed between the plant and the city authorities. The Company takes a responsible approach to the implementation of measures that allow to reduce emissions of pollutants, "she said.
