Hellenic Halyvourgia uses a strict and effective system to monitor key environmental factors. We apply advanced control systems and constantly introduce Best Available Techniques (BAT) in all our operations to minimize our environmental footprint and ensure maximum protection of our employees and the community at large. These include:

  • Stringent controls using cutting-edge detecting devices to ensure the absence of radioactivity in both raw materials and finished products
  • The substitution of fuel oil used in production with natural gas, which is environmentally friendly
  • Advanced off-gas collection and treatment facilities at our steel mills
  • On-site waste water recycling plants
  • Measures to reduce energy consumption and minimize emissions
  • Disposal of solid by-products and other waste through authorized recyclers to ensure resource recovery
  • Close cooperation with all accredited waste management agencies

Committed to environmental protection and sustainable development, Hellenic Halyvourgia allocates a significant portion of its annual investments to meet regulatory requirements and keep improving its environmental performance. The company’s environmental management system is ISO 14001:2004 certified.
