Usje2On December 13th, 2013, Cementarnica Usje AD Skopje commissioned the new Treatment plant for storm water, the first of its kind in Macedonia. The new Treatment plant is an investment worth half a million euros and is part of the activities for the implementation of the Operational Plan for harmonization of the A integrated environmental permit. With the implementation of this investment, Cementarnica USJE AD fully meets the obligations of the Operating Plan for harmonization of the A integrated environmental permit before the deadline that expires in April 2014.

Usje1Present were and gave their speeches the Deputy Prime Minister of the Government of the Republic of Macedonia in charge of Economic Affairs Mr. Vladimir Peshevski, the Minister of Environment and Physical Planning Abdulakim Ademi, the Mayor of the city of Skopje, Koce Trajanovski, the Major of Municipality Kisela Voda, Biljana Belicanec and the Chief Executive Director of USJE, Mr. Boris Hrisafov, who also cut the red ribbon for official start of the operation of the facility.

Although Cementarnica USJE in its technological process does not use water, it is making continuous efforts to conserve water as a natural resource. The Treatment plant represents the final phase of the project that includes a system for rational utilization of waters and allows complete separation of sewage from storm water. Technical water used for cooling the equipment is filtered and recycled in a closed system and the water from the city water supply system is used only for sanitary needs and is then flushed in the city sewers. Storm water from the plant and the water used for washing the streets is collected and drained through a specially designed system of channels that are attached to the Treatment plant.
