Karelsky Okatysh, a leading plant for the production and processing of iron ore
in Russia (enters in PAO Severstal), together with the specialists of the Institute
of the industrial ecology problems of the North Kola science center Russian Academy of Sciences began to
the selection of the method of purification of waste quarry waters coming from Karpinskogo
field before discharge into the Unnamed Creek. Clean water is planned at
relief natural component of the substrate of peat. Major work on the project
will start in 2020, and the investment in the project exceeds 10 million rubles.
Also next year will begin delivery of the equipment of the pilot plant
desulfurization. If the project proves its effectiveness, replicate it on all
of kiln mill. In addition, plans for the construction of
the processing of large tires. The project will be implemented together with another
a raw asset of "Severstal" – company "Alcon".
"In accordance with the ecological program of "Severstal" its goals, we
put to avoid impacts on water bodies and to achieve
established standards reset to provide an effective cleaning and reduction
mass emissions at the level of best world standards, and reduce the number
of waste," – said the chief ecologist "Karelian Okatysh" and "Alcon"
Recall that in 2018, the plant has launched the second phase of construction
thickening of tailings - now up to 70% water is in the inner circulation
of the enterprise. Investment in this project amounted to 1.3 billion rubles. Work in
this direction will be continued. In particular, the planned construction
a closed loop of a new compartment of the tailings. Important environmental
component is present in the most ambitious in the history of Karel "
pellet" project – the construction of complex Cyclic-flow technology (CCM)
at a cost of 8 billion rubles.
"the CCM Complex is a conveyor system that will lift the ore and
Stripping to the surface of the Central pit. Modern technology allows you to
the works to increase efficiency through reduction of costs on transport of
the mountain mass with dump trucks, as well as significantly reduce emissions from work
technology in career", – said General Director of "Karelsky Okatysh" and
the"Alcon" Maxim Vorobyov.
