Our company Global Ispat Koksna Industrija d.o.o. Lukavac has signed the Continuous Monitoring System Contract for measuring air emissions at the end of 2017 with BH Company IBE Junuzović d.o.o. Sarajevo. This equipment is from a renowned German producer, Dr. Fodish, and its installation would fulfil one of the basic obligations for renewal of the environmental permit.

The procurement of the mentioned product meets all the current requirements of BiH legislation as well as EU legislation, and besides the implementation of environmental protection measures in accordance with the necessary regulations, the recent activities have been directed especially to improving the technological and production process.  


- We want to show that environmental protection is not an obligation but a way of behaving in the business community with respect to the local community. When it comes to the signed contract, we would like to emphasize that GIKIL has fulfilled its obligations and that we are waiting for the delivery of equipment in compliance with EU standards as well as the norms of Bosnia and Herzegovina. A high quality system, a recognized company and valuable equipment have been selected, and it will be installed on two remaining points, at the Power plant and the Coke plant chimneys, according to European standards - Jasmin Imširović, Environmental and Quality Control Manager and at GIKIL explains.


The signed contract on procurement, installation and commissioning of continuous monitoring of the emission measurement system will allow complete monitoring of the sources and causes of pollution, and thereby determining responsibility and timely reaction to reduce any recorded excess emissions. All this is an additional proof that after stabilizing the business since the last quarter of 2017, that means safe work posts, which are the top priority, GIKIL is making the utmost efforts to show that it is a serious and socially responsible company to a wider social community.


- GIKIL is a company that strives to optimize its technological production processes, as well as a company that wants to prove that besides profits, its core objective is investing in capital projects that have the same impact on the environment as well as added value - said Debasish Ganguly, Managing director of GIKIL.


As a reminder, the procurement of equipment for monitoring of emissions was one of the basic requirements of the Committee for the evaluation of request for issuing environment permit as well as the conditions of the Federal Ministry of the Environment. After installing the equipment, which is a valuable investment, it is to be expected that the conditions for launching environmental renewal activities for GIKIL will be obtained. Benefits of this project will soon be recognized, both by our workers and citizens.


After significant overhauling operations at the coke oven doors, major work has been done in the last few months on the gasholder with the aim to improve the technological discipline which indirectly helps to reduce the potential emissions. By eliminating technical shortcomings and raising the operators’ responsibilities and maintenance level, significant improvements have been made, as well as reduction in fugitive emissions.
