Slovnaft cut emissions by five percent in first half of 2007

Slovakia's oil refinery Slovnaft continued to reduce its emissions in the first half of 2007, cutting the total amount by five percent over the same period last year, a Slovnaft spokesperson said on October 8.

Slovnaft attributed the drop to the reconstruction of a sludge-incinerating plant, lower energy consumption, and a mild winter.

Slovnaft's carbon-dioxide emissions, which are subject to legislation on emissions-trading quotas, fell by four percent on the year in the first six months of 2007 to stand at 1.087 million tonnes.

Slovnaft also cut the volume of its hazardous waste in the first half of 2007 by 20 percent year-on-year.
