The company spoke about the Sulfur Program at the eco-forum in Moscow.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. At the environmental forum, Stanislav Seleznev, vice president for environment and industrial safety at Nornickel, spoke about the company’s largest-scale project, the Sulfur Program.

The full-scale environmental strategy implementation in Norilsk began in 2016, when the Nickel Plant was closed, and the situation in the city changed dramatically, Stanislav Seleznev noted. But there was still a lot of work ahead:

“Yes, there are still two industries that emit a large amount of sulfur dioxide into the atmosphere – the Nadezhda Metallurgical Plant and the Copper Plant. The most ambitious and, at the same time, the most necessary and absolutely social project, the Sulfur Program, is called upon to solve the problem. Its scale is impressive – 250 billion rubles have been allocated for implementation”.

The first stage of the program is the construction of facilities at Nadezhda. According to Seleznev, , sulfur recycling production at NMP should be launched in 2023.

“If we talk about the second stage, unfortunately, redesign is necessary. At the Copper Plant, the Sulfur Program was scheduled to be completed in 2025. But we were faced with the fact that the project requires other equipment. Now this issue is being worked out. The company intends to implement this project”, said Stanislav Seleznev.
