The development of the world economy has led not only to the acceleration of urbanization and globalization, but also to the need to improve pr oduction to meet environmental standards. The main task assigned to companies is to reduce the pollution on the environment while increasing capacity and developing production. Companies must find positive solutions to urban and social problems, control the environmental impact and prevent damage. World ports are also dependent on these trends. When handling coal, the environm ent becomes polluted with coal dust, which ad versely affects health of people in seaport towns and conditions higher social tension. The best solution in this regard is coal handling in enclosed spaces, which is hazardous with spontaneous ignition of coal. On the g round of the advanced international experience reviewed, the coal stevedore companies are to use the best available technologies and modernized engineering solutions. Adherence to this trend enabl es stevedores to comply with the environmental regulations, as well as to enhance their technical and economic potential.
