Act Legal Czech Republic has advised Sokolov on the construction of a CZK 140 million facility that will help the company transition from coal to natural gas as its energy source.
Sokolov is a subsidiary of international chemicals producer Synthomer. According to the firm, "the original coal source was built in the Sokolov chemical plant in 1917 when the plant itself was established. The new source of steam production in Synthomer will include three high-pressure steam boilers that will burn natural gas." It further informed that "thanks to the new source, CO2 emissions will be reduced by a third, emissions of other pollutants and water abstraction from the Ohre River will significantly fall."
