We continuously identify, evaluate and monitor aspects in air, water, noise, waste generation and consumption of natural resources and energy.
The processes in ALKALOID AD Skopje, according to the measurements of the aspects on the environment, are in compliance with the legislation, the international standards requirements and the interested parties.
We monitor the environmental aspects in the air i.e. gas emissions in order to minimize the greenhouse effect and CO2 emissions. For that purpose, the company switched to using natural gas instead of fuel oil in the production processes at its production sites in Avtokomanda and Gjorce Petrov.
In order to improve the quality of wastewater and maintain the levels within the prescribed parameters, we have changed and continuously maintain the wastewater system. By regularly maintaining the pollination systems and setting sound barriers, we monitor and minimize the aspect of noise to the environment in which we work.
Below, we will present the key elements and improvements to the Environmental Management System, impact monitoring, and compliance with regulatory and other requirements and projects for environmental performance improvement in 2021.
