In 2023, PGE Ekoserwis, a subsidiary of the PGE Group, successfully managed 3.5 million tons of residual combustion products. Gypsum, ashes, and slag, byproducts of the combustion process in energy production, found applications across various sectors including construction, agriculture, livestock farming, and mining. This strategic utilization not only conserved natural resources but also minimized the creation of new landfills, consequently reducing carbon dioxide emissions.

Pioneering Research and Development

Through its research and development arm, the GOZ Research and Development Center in Bełchatów, along with a team of highly skilled technologists and collaborations with academic and scientific institutions, PGE Ekoserwis has pioneered the development and implementation of high-quality materials and products for diverse applications, notably in the construction sector.

Sustainable Infrastructure Solutions

The adoption of alternative materials, derived from ashes and slag generated during coal combustion in energy production, is increasingly prevalent in the construction industry. These materials offer ecological benefits and contribute significantly to reducing the extraction of natural minerals, optimizing resource consumption, mitigating carbon dioxide emissions, and minimizing waste generation.

Driving Green Initiatives

Within the PGE Group, prioritizing eco-friendly practices is paramount, with PGE Ekoserwis leading the Closed-Loop Economy (GOZ) segment. This entity specializes in collecting residual combustion products, processing them into high-value construction materials, and ensuring their full integration into various construction projects nationwide.

Transforming Byproducts into Assets

In the preceding year, PGE Ekoserwis procured over 800,000 tons of synthetic gypsum, primarily supplying the cement and construction industries. Gypsum, utilized as a fertilizer, contributed to agricultural enhancement and mushroom cultivation. Additionally, it was exported to the Netherlands for construction purposes.

Versatile Applications in Construction

Ashes were directed towards cement factories, concrete plants, precast element manufacturers, chemical construction companies, and foundries. Noteworthy applications included road engineering projects such as the A2 motorway and various expressways and bypasses across the country.

Diverse Utilization Across Industries

In addition to road construction, the products derived from residual combustion products were instrumental in railway infrastructure projects, environmental remediation efforts, and large-scale engineering endeavors. Hydrotechnical binders supplied by PGE Ekoserwis were vital components in water management and land reclamation projects, including flood protection embankments along the Nysa Łużycka River.

Leadership in Sustainable Business Practices

PGE Ekoserwis, with over three decades of experience in managing residual combustion products, offers a portfolio of over 200 certified products derived from both combustion and mining byproducts. These products adhere to stringent environmental standards and undergo rigorous quality assurance m
