#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. Stanislav Seleznev, vice president for environment and industrial policy at Nornickel, spoke about the status of the company’s environmental projects and the reduction of sulfur dioxide emissions in 2021. In total, the company has planned more than a hundred environmental strategy activities related to water, air and land, he said. In 2022, this is just over 50 billion rubles.
Recall that the Clean Norilsk project was included in the Clean Arctic project. First, about 40 billion rubles were allocated to clean up in Norilsk and around Norilsk. For this, a special unit of more than 700 people was created.
In 2021, 108 old buildings and structures were dismantled and demolished in Norilsk. Garbage was placed at waste storage facilities, and scrap metal was cut and taken out of the city.
This work will continue in 2022. Stanislav Seleznev also recalled that a decision had been made to build a large closed-cycle eco-technopark for waste processing in Norilsk, this work is being carried out by the municipality. By 2024, a large waste recycling complex should appear in the city. After the sorting appears, further redistribution of rubber, wood, plastic, glass, and so on will be adapted to it, summed up Stanislav Seleznev.
