In the first half of 2018, company JAVYS, a. s., recycled more than 826 tonnes of secondary raw materials within the decommissioning process of the A1 and V1 nuclear power plants.

In the process of A1 and V1 NPP decommissioning, our company returned 826 tonnes of secondary raw materials into the process of recycling in the first half of 2018. Recycling of the highest possible quantities of materials, minimizing the waste production and environment protection is one of the crucial objectives of company JAVYS, a. s.
In the first half of 2018, iron-based materials – more than 801 tonnes – represented the biggest volume in the total volume of secondary raw materials.
