Environmental Management System
On March 14, 2017 as part of works conducted to implement the Environmental Management System as per standard PN-EN ISO 14001:2015, the Management Board of TAMEH POLSKA sp. z o.o approved the Environmental Policy which obligates the Company to run its activity in respect of natural environment.
The scope of the implemented Environmental Protection System is as follows:
- Generation of electric energy, heat and power utilities for the production of steel.
The above-mentioned scope of the Environmental Management System is implemented in the following locations:
- Zakład Wytwarzania Nowa, Al. Marszałka Józefa Piłsudskiego 92/102B, 41-308 Dąbrowa Górnicza,
- Zakład Wytwarzania Kraków in Kraków, ul. Ujastek 1, 31-752 Kraków,
- Zakład Wytwarzania Blachownia in Kędzierzyn-Koźle, ul Energetyków 11, 47-225 Kędzierzyn-Koźle
On June 20, 2017 TAMEH POLSKA was awarded a certificate confirming the implementation and practical application of the System.
Audits in June 2018 and 2019 confirmed the compliance of the implemented system with standard PN-EN ISO 14001:2015 and effectiveness of environmental management mechanisms.
Re-certification audits conducted in June and August 2020 confirmed the compliance of the implemented system with standard PN-EN ISO 14001:2015 and extended validity period of the certificate by 3 years. The new certificate is valid till June 19, 2023.
Transposition in Q4 2014 to the Polish legislation of Directive 2010/75/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 24 November 2010 on industrial emissions (integrated pollution prevention and control) - known as IED, introduces to our legal system much stricter standards with respect to emissions of certain substances to air. Those requirements became even more stringent on August 17, 2017 when Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2017/1442 of 31 July 2017 establishing best available techniques (BAT) conclusions for large combustion plants was published in the Official Journal of the European Union.
Since its creation, TAMEH POLSKA has greatly emphasized environmental and efficiency activities which will make it possible for all our Plants to meet legal requirements and expectations of the local community.
A new 55 MWe turbo generator was handed over for operation last year in Generation Plant Nowa in Dąbrowa Górnicza. Another key environmental investment is in progress in Dąbrowa Górnicza - erection of waste gas DeNOx and DeSOx installations, as well as the erection of two new top recovery turbines (TRT), 12.5 MWe each, which will facilitate emission-free generation of electric energy.
Modernization of one of the boilers involving its adaptation to run on gas fuels only was completed in Generation Plant Kraków in Q1 2018. Erection of two gas boilers and a 55 MWe turbo generator is almost finished.
And last but not least, Generation Plant Blachownia in Kędzierzyn Koźle where works are in progress on the development of a comprehensive concept covering modernization of boilers and reduction of nitrogen oxide emission. All investments described contribute to the reduction of pollutions emitted to the atmosphere, and limit the impact of the Plants on other environmental aspects thanks to the use of new technologies, while at the same time increasing efficiency and reliability of the Company's operations.
