The Climate Summit in Katowice is now behind us. If you are wondering what it looked like from the point of view of a COP 24 partner, Jastrzębska Spółka Węglowa, watch our video clip. It was a series of events, which ranged from the presentation of a hydrogen-fueled bus to co-organization of the Energy 24 Congress and the Partner’s Day, to workshops for kids and a laser show in the evening. All those events attracted hundreds of participants and audience.
Jarosław Gąska from the Zofiówka Section, following a fierce battle, won the 9th edition of the “Competition on Knowledge of OHS rules and regulations for the Cup of the JSW S.A. President”, held on 14 December in JSW’s seat. The second place went to Waldemar Jarosz from the Pniówek Mine, who scored the same number of points as the winner, but over a longer time.

Contemporary, innovation, start-ups – these buzzwords were ever present at the Energy24 congress, which was co-organized by Jastrzębska Spółka Węglowa at the University of Economics in Katowice from 11 to 12 December. The conclusions are obvious: mining is an open industry, which is constantly developing.
At the Climate Summit, JSW has confirmed its ambitious plans to deliver environmentally friendly products, including hydrogen separated from coke oven gas, graphene-based nanotubes and adsorbents. Hand in hand with European industry leaders, the company argued to convince policy-makers that coking coal is an indispensable raw commodity for the production of steel, which itself is the foundation of modern industry in the 21st century.
Students of one of schools in Katowice had the chance to travel on a hydrogen-powered bus. The vehicle that usually transports passengers in one of cities in the Netherlands, today appeared in front of the School Complex No. 1 in Katowice and took the students on a tour of the Nikiszowiec historic district.
The role of coal and steel in the European Union and the future of the Polish coal sector – these are the main topics of the Energy 24 Congress. The conference held at the Advanced Information Technology Center at the University of Economics in Katowice is co-organized by Jastrzębska Spółka Węglowa and is an event accompanying the COP24 Climate Summit.
Very quiet and producing practically no emissions – this is the bus that transports the participants of the Climate Summit in Katowice. It is powered by hydrogen – also referred to as the fuel of the future. JSW SA has the ambition of becoming a leading producer of this environment-friendly source of energy.
