SPOLCHEMIE - Patron of World Cleanup Day


This year, Spolchemie has become the proud patron of the Czech participation in the worldwide event World Cleanup Day, which will take place today as part of the traditional Half Marathon in Ústí nad Labem. Globally, 50 million people are taking part in the event in 180 countries, helping the world to dispose of a total of 280 tons of waste. Such an event not only deserves support, but also naturally fits into the pillar of the long-term strategy of our company called GREEN SPOLCHEMIE because it helps to improve the environment and at the same time takes place directly in our home city.

It is no longer true that chemistry is a "dirty" industry, and our successes and advances in this area are proof of this. As one of the first among Czech companies, in 1994 we signed up to fulfill the global initiative Responsible Care - responsible business in chemistry - and we responsibly fulfill these principles. Since 2000, for example, we have reduced our emissions by more than 90% and our energy consumption, and thus our carbon footprint, by almost half. Over the past 15 years, we have invested more than five billion crowns in modernization programs, and one of the most successful projects has been the construction of modern membrane electrolysis, which has made it possible to completely eliminate mercury from our production. Thanks to this, we also produce hydrogen, the use of which as a clean ecological fuel for public transport in Ústí nad Labem is now intensively being made in cooperation with the city and the project is moving forward successfully. In addition, we will offer our hydrogen as vehicle fuel to all other interested parties, including the general public.
