Nornickel and Rosprirodnadzor implemented joint plan

January 14, 2021

A set of measures made it possible to reduce the negative impact of industrial emissions into the atmosphere of Norilsk.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. In 2010, an agreement on cooperation between the Federal Service for Supervision of Environmental Management and PJSC MMC Norilsk Nickel was signed to support an action plan to reduce the negative impact of pollutant emissions into the atmosphere of Norilsk.

In 2011, Nornickel and Rosprirodnadzor developed and signed a joint action plan for 2011 to implement the agreement, held public hearings, and conducted an international environmental conference.

Since May 2012, the Polar Division has begun to provide the population with predictive data on the impact of the activities of the company’s metallurgical divisions on the atmospheric air. They can be found in real time on the free telephone information booth “007”.

In January 2013, Norilsk Nickel and Rosprirodnadzor signed a Joint Action Plan for 2013 to implement an agreement on cooperation to support an action plan to reduce the negative impact of pollutant emissions into the city’s atmosphere.

From 11 to 13 September 2013, a regular international environmental conference was held in Norilsk.

In the summer of 2016, the Nickel Plant was closed in Norilsk. This step became a successful example of public-private cooperation aimed at solving problems to improve the environmental situation in the region and deep modernization of the Russian mining and metallurgical industry.

Now the Norilsk Nickel company is implementing the Sulfur Project, which will make it possible to reduce sulfur dioxide emissions in the Norilsk industrial region tenfold (by 90 percent) by 2025. The project cost exceeds 250 billion rubles.
