Dukat Company with two production facilities is one of the leading producers of industrial minerals. Dukat, a manufacturing facility in Palić, deals with the grinding of industrial minerals that it's receives from its own mines and offers a large selection of products that are applied in various industries, primarily in the paint, plastics, construction, animal feed and agriculture industries. Our products, which are applied in various branches of industry, give the products resistance, pigment properties, strength, viscosity, mechanical properties, nutritional value and more.
Our wish is to ensure secure employment for as many of our fellow citizens as possible through constant development, and at the same time, by contributing our products to foreign markets, we will contribute to the development of the economy in the territory of Subotica as well as the entire region.
Processing is carried out in a state-of-the-art facility with constant quality control to satisfy even the most demanding customers. The total area of the facility is about 20000 m², of which more than 3000m² is under the roof. A full-capacity processing plant can produce more than 60,000 tons of micronized limestone per year.
Limestone is a sedimentary rock composed primarily of calcium carbonate with slight admixtures of other minerals, mainly magnesium. Most limestone rocks are of biochemical origin, which means they are formed by the deposition of marine shells. Limestone can also be of chemical origin, as is the case with Travertite. Due to the high percentage of calcium, limestone is generally light in color but there are many variations.
The limestone from our quarry has a high percentage of calcium carbonate, more than 98% and a high whiteness index compared to magnesium oxide-MgO.
The excavation and processing of stone takes place in several stages:
• removal of tailings
• blasting - in blocks or loose depending on the way the stone structure is processed, depth and hardness
• final processing
The Kuchevo quarry is equipped with state-of-the-art machinery for exploitation and transportation, such as: Brown Lenox crusher, Hyundai 290 LC-7A excavator, Hyundai HL760 loaders, MAN dump trucks and other necessary equipment. The limestone from this quarry has a high calcium carbonate content of more than 98% and a high whiteness index compared to magnesium oxide-MgO.
To ensure long-term success, we must minimize environmental impact and contribute to the quality of life in the local community. In the long term, we are constantly committed to meeting these goals. Given the increasing number of sustainability challenges, we are focusing on issues that are a priority for our business:
• natural resource management
• packaging & recycling
• employee health
• engaging suppliers
• the welfare of the local community
For each of these questions, we set goals, monitoring and measuring the progress achieved just as rigorously as in other segments of our business, striving to maintain the highest standard of conduct and integrity in the business. Dukat strives to serve its customers through product quality and flexibility to meet all the requirements of its business partners.
