#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. Nornickel will help organize air quality control in Russia: the company is participating in a pilot project: an agreement was signed between Nornickel and a public-law company to form an integrated system for handling solid municipal waste – Russian Environmental Operator.
As part of the project, Nornickel will equip enterprises with instruments for measuring greenhouse gas emissions. This will be the first in Russia experiment on instrumental measurement of the carbon footprint in real time.
“This will enable us to systematically approach the goal of achieving carbon neutrality. The company is actively working in this direction, first of all, we are talking about updating the infrastructure”, the press service of the company noted.
As a reminder, in October Nornickel completed the modernization of the northernmost hydroelectric power station in Russia – Ust-Hantayskaya. The modernization of seven hydraulic units was carried out in stages, over seven years, and the cost of the work amounted to 7.5 billion rubles. The company’s largest environmental project, the Sulfur Program, is aimed at reducing sulfur dioxide emissions.
