Zaporizhstal has become a winner of the Ukrainian rating “Econtransformation-2019” in the “Leader of Ecoinvestments” nomination.
The company has been awarded for its investment program on ecological modernization carried out in 7 years.
Since 2012 Zaporizhstal has invested some 11 billion UAH in the modernization of its manufacture.
In particular, the company has completely modernized its sinter factory, having assembled bag filters to all the 6 sintering machines, and adding the system of emission online monitoring. This allowed decreasing dust emission by 90%, and sulfur – by 50%.
3 out of 4 blast furnaces received dust-exhaust systems, which provided the purification of gases from dust at 20 mg per cubic meter. (Ukrainian metal)
