Other priorities are the rational use of non-renewable natural resources and the development of the co-processing of waste and rehabilitation programmes for industrial areas facing problems.
“The main investment made by our factories in the environment were aimed at high-performance dust filters, ovens, and mills of raw materials. Dust filters were fixed also to auxiliary installations,” said Wirth, adding that the production units were equipped with devices for continuous emission monitoring.
