We can’t have a modern economy without steel, the Prime Minister said. He also said that
If we want to promote renewable energy and boost the development of the automotive industry, we need to have very good quality steel.
Mateusz Morawiecki recalled that the EU had defined coking coal as a strategic resource and that Poland builds on this potential. He also mentioned in his speech that JSW is the biggest producer of coking coal in the EU, and that
local deposits of the resource will build the capacity of the Polish industry.
The Prime Minister also visited the Radlin coking plant, where a modern CHP plant is being built, which is to provide electricity for the plant and the city. In his presence, a cooperation agreement was signed for the supply of heat to the people of Radlin.
New installations will contribute to reducing emissions of, e.g., greenhouse gases. This will increase energy efficiency and reduce negative environmental impacts, which is part of the Clean Air Programme.
I am convinced that this investment will serve not only the residents of Silesia, but also the whole of Poland, Mateusz Morawiecki concluded.
During his visit to Silesia, the Prime Minister also laid flowers and lit candles at the monuments commemorating the Polish Army soldiers, Silesian insurgents and scouts who died in September 1939.
