It was even a more economically advantageous solution
"It is true that circular solutions are more difficult to implement, to innovate or to modernize. However, this is not always the case at the economic level. In this case, it was even a more economically advantageous solution. In addition, every piece of nature is really valued in urban areas. We want to use this approach to inspire other companies and show that ecological solutions are not always necessarily more expensive. We are talking about an investment of about 2.5 million Czech crowns. The savings compared to the traditional solution with a concrete retention tank amount to almost 50 percent,” said Jan Turek, Coca-Cola supply chain director of HBC ČR/SK. The investment will be paid by CC HBC in full from its own resources, without grant titles.
The company also checked the possibilities of the space with experts. Among other things, with the Society of Friends of Nature Čmelák. "We were interested in the fact that Coca-Cola HBC is considering that part of the area will not stop and preserve its natural character. We see this as a positive approach. Our organization has many years of experience with the transformation of land into a natural and biologically diverse environment. That is why we have offered cooperation on the transformation of this land, which has the potential to become a place with high biodiversity. I believe that in two years it is possible to create a great place for people and for nature,” said Jan Korytář, chairman of the Čmelák association.
In addition to the positive management of the drain, the project will also have another effect
The methodology is also supported by the top management, which made it possible to change the original design of the project solution of rainwater drainage to the sewerage system of Prague without local use to an ecological alternative of capturing and draining rainwater from the Prague area to the newly created wetland on CC HBC. Thanks to the solution of water drainage through gutter paths to the so-called dry polder and then to the wetland, the water will be drained back into nature. The total area left to purely natural potential without any commercial use has an area of 3.14 ha. An area of approximately 10,000 m2 of vegetation areas intended for natural development with a dry polder, including a wetland with a project area of 2,000 m2, is reserved for part of the water complex. In addition to the positive management of the drain, the project will also have another effect - it will contribute to the natural cooling of the surroundings of the premises in Prague 14 in the hot summer months.
