Chemical plant Duslo Šaľa might begin mass layoffs

The Duslo Šaľa chemical factory, based in the southern-Slovak town of Šaľa, is considering closing one of its plants, the Sme daily wrote.

The Duslo Šaľa chemical factory, based in the southern-Slovak town of Šaľa, is considering closing one of its plants, the Sme daily wrote.

The company that employs a total of 2,200 people could thus lay off as many as 800 of them, the daily wrote in its Tuesday, June 4 issue. Duslo Šaľa argues that the municipality of Močenok, where the facility in question is located, refused to allow it to produce aniline, probably due to environmental fears of activists. Duslo CEO Petr Cingr said, as quoted by Sme, that the municipality’s representatives did not seem to show disapproval of the plan, which would involve an investment worth €80 million within three years.

Finally, the Environment Ministry will now decide whether the project, involving a huge investment in the facility, will take place.
