Technological processes taking place in the coke industry are adversely affecting the environment due to a significant emission of pollutants into the air and water. According to current national and EU legal requirements for coke installations, coke plants are obliged to implement corrective solutions for modernization or construction and operation of new batteries and installations that support production.
Therefore, implementation of the investment in effective technical solutions for environmental protection is expected to meet the requirements of the Best Available Techniques for the coke industry.
Therefore, BIPROMET pays particular attention to the specialization in the field of gas and water treatment plant modernization, and design and implementation of dust extraction systems using dry and wet electrostatic precipitators designed for desalination of gases. The developed technology for dedusting has been implemented, among others, in installations for tar removal of gases from tunnel furnaces in Zakłady Chemiczne in Blachownia-Kędzierzyn, and coke gas in Katowice Mill.
The experience and know-how allowed BIPROMET to participate in significant projects concerning modernization of the Coke Plant in Radlin, or Modernization of the Coke Plant in Częstochowa - Nowa. Both tasks involved development of an engineering, supply of equipment and components, including bag filters and complete installation of the coke battery extraction system, as well as commissioning and optimization of plant operation and taking it over for continuous operation.
As a result of the measurements, both plants achieved an average dust concentration of exhaust gas at a lower level than originally indicated in the investment task.
