OKK Koksovny, a.s.
Our core activity is the production of coke from quality coking coal, acquired not only from the Ostrava-Karviná mining district, a constituent part of the Upper Silesian coalfield, but also from other parts of Europe and the world. Our products are essential in the manufacturing of thermal insulation and in the production of iron, as well as in the chemical industry and other industries.more »
Requirements placed by consumers on the qualitative parameters of products have created the need to secure accreditation for the test laboratory of the Department of Quality Management and Control (OŘKJ) – OKK Koksovny, a. s. The accreditation represents an official recognition of the eligibility of the subject of accreditation to perform specific tasks (tests, calibrations, etc.).
New World Resources Plc announced that it has published its first Sustainability Report (the ‘Report’), which has been compiled in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (‘GRI’) at Application Level A. The Report comprehensively describes the economic, environmental and social impacts and benefits of NWR’s activities in 2011.
With Ostrava and other regions currently plagued by increased volumes of dust particles in the air, OKK Koksovny, a.s., has put its new sweeping and cleaning vehicle into full operation. The vehicle, built on an AVIA undercarriage, was purchased with the company’s own investment resources.
Decreasing the dustiness within the company's operational premises and the immediate surroundings is an ongoing task that forms part of the environmental activities pursued by OKK Koksovny. Previously secured as a third-party service, the dust reduction process did not prove optimally efficient. The new dust-collecting cleaning vehicle will be operated, contrary to the previous practice, in accordance with immediate operational needs and will be used, inter alia, to clean new firm-surface operational areas recently adapted for machine cleaning.
The modern, automated dust-collecting sweeper offers a service life of at least 10 years during which period it is expected to remove approximately 5,000 tonnes of dust.
