After the project implementation, the total emissions amount will be reduced by 90 percent.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. After the accident at CHPP-3 in 2020, an environmental department was created in Norilsk Nickel. It is headed by vice president Stanislav Seleznev, who has built an environmental risk management system.

“We analyzed the problems in this sector and began to rebuild the system. We are trying to turn environmentalists into project managers who would draw up an action plan based on the violations results and ensure that this plan is followed, conveying its importance to everyone”, said Stanislav Seleznev.

The Sulfur program is a large-scale environmental project that has no analogues in the world. In Norilsk, sulfur dioxide is produced during production – about 1.8 million tons per year.

“Next to each plant, in fact, another plant will be built, which will turn sulfur dioxide into sulfuric acid, and then convert it into gypsum of the fifth hazard class – this is practically the utilization of dioxide. The project is being implemented in two phases”.

At the first stage, the technology will be introduced at the Nadezhda Metallurgical plant, which will allow a 45 percent reduction in dioxide emissions in the refinery. At the second stage, a project will be launched at the Copper plant.

The effect of the Sulfur program will be visible this autumn. Ecologists called the Sulfur program a breakthrough in 2022.
