Environmental friendliness of lime production – new technologies and innovations

Today, on November 21, representatives of the Ukrainian environmental industry, headed by Tetyana Tymochko, head of the All-Ukrainian Environmental League, paid a working visit to GALVAPNO as part of the first day of the National Forum “Waste Management in Ukraine: Legislation, Economics, Technology”.
First of all, the environmentalists were interested in the benefits of modern and modernized production located on the territory of the Stryganetsky quarry in Ivano-Frankivsk region in terms of environmental safety.
GALVAPNO, which is one of the leaders in the Ukrainian lime market, is no exception and recognizes the urgency, the need for energy efficiency and environmental friendliness in lime production.
Representatives of the eco-industry were able to make sure that, without exaggeration, GALVAPNO is an example of successful practice of applying innovative eco-responsible technologies and the only lime producers in Ukraine that use such technologies. Accordingly, they are the only ones whose product quality has no analogues in the domestic market.
The new production facility ensures energy-efficient and environmentally responsible lime production using the Synthesis kiln from the Italian company QualiCal and is a prime example of the environmentally friendly use of natural resources. It is important that the operation of the enterprise with such technologies does not pose a threat to the environment, soil and water bodies of the settlements adjacent to the production.
The synthesis furnace is energy efficient, runs on the least polluting fuel, natural gas, and has a modern exhaust gas cleaning system. Thanks to its advanced design and unique parallel flow regeneration (PFR) technology, the furnace optimizes fuel and air consumption, resulting in impressive energy savings.
The furnace design supports a highly efficient heat recovery process. This function, achieved by preheating the material, ensures optimal energy use, encapsulating the principles of circular economy and improving environmental care.
Among other things, the guests of the production facility visited the operator’s room – the control and management center, where they saw how the synthesis furnace is controlled by MOSAICO’s own intelligent automation system. This innovative system helps to increase operational efficiency and flexibility, while maintaining responsibility for worker safety.
All these steps taken by GALVAPNO together with the All-Ukrainian Ecological League and the leading European manufacturer QualiCal, in compliance with the current legislation of Ukraine, mark a significant commitment to environmental practices in line with our common strategic vision.
