Project description

We manufacture busbars for modular single-phase low-voltage apparatus which are used as elements of electrical devices and installations, mainly by companies producing electrical installation equipment and electrical safety devices. The aim of the project is to modernise our production process, and applying environment-friendly solutions at the same time. ELKAT has developed a PVC extrusion technology which will be implemented under the project. Research will need to be conducted leading to the formulation of an improved PVC mix. Also, a new production line for extrusion from PVC regranulate will be purchased and installed. We will cooperate with a Norwegian partner, Avitron Norway Limited Company, that will be responsible for the delivery and installation of a heat pump, a photovoltaic system and an EV charging station. Thanks to the project, we will reduce the emission of substances harmful to the environment (CO2 emission smaller by 14,06 tons), reuse waste for production (10 tons of waste recycled in 2023). In addition, recovery of heat from plastic production machines located in the new hall will be possible, and the surplus of energy will be used for heating. Energy recovery will also come from devices accompanying the production such as the compressor, the ice water aggregate and the dryer for plastics.
