Year after year, LOTOS is getting better at controlling air pollution and is trying to produce less waste and sewage and to have as little impact on the water quality as possible in the area of extraction. Energy economy is also important from the environmental point of view. The concern invests in energy consumption at every stage of the value chain, controls the technical condition of the equipment, detects and removes components that cause unnecessary energy losses. It also pays attention to all these aspects in new investments.
The LOTOS Group also cares about its impact on local communities. Despite the lack of legal requirements in this regard, devices emitting the most arduous odours in our sewage treatment plant in Gdańsk were sealed. We also ensured recirculation of portions of treated sewage and water vapour condensate and we built a return system for discharge gases, which we use as fuel gas (instead of flared). When the refinery was modernised, we used this opportunity to provide gas access to surrounding localities.
