Press Releases
Commenting on serious investments in environmental protection, the Chairman of the Board of Directors of PJSC MMK Viktor Rashnikov stressed that today the environment is a key priority for the Magnitogorsk Iron and Steel Works. That is why, while carrying out technical re-equipment, the company pays special attention to achieving environmental safety and using the best available technologies. “Dirty industries are basically not competitive in the 21st century. At the same time, for a metallurgical enterprise this is not only a matter of environmental protection, but also of economic efficiency. Without losing production volumes, due to the introduction of new technologies, we get environmentally friendly and economically efficient production, ”noted Viktor Rashnikov. MMK's environmental investments prove their effectiveness. Thus, the implementation of the environmental program in 2020 made it possible to reduce gross atmospheric emissions by 19.6 thousand tons compared to 2019 (to 177.4 thousand tons), and specific emissions by 4% (to 17.2 kg /ton metal products). In addition, 1.91 million tons of production wastes were used in the sinter batch as secondary material resources, and 10.055 million tons of dump slags were processed at specialized plants. In accordance with the Environmental Program of PJSC MMK, 78 technical measures were carried out in 2020. to reduce and prevent negative impact on the environment. Eight more events are underway. Among the most significant environmental protection measures of the year is the construction of an aspiration system for the foundry yard of blast furnace No. 2. Thanks to the constructed aspiration unit with a capacity of 850 thousand cubic meters per hour, dust emissions have decreased by 250 t /year, and the working conditions of the furnaces have improved significantly. , as well as dust suppression systems at the car dumper and crushing department of the coal preparation shop. In addition, it is necessary to note the reconstruction of the drainage system of the dolomite pit in the sludge storage facility No. drainage system and pumping equipment with a capacity of 500 cubic meters /hour, which constantly pumps water into sludge storage no. 2, which is a man-made deposit. Now the water from the bottom of the dolomite quarry is used by the mining and processing industry. Thus, the dolomite quarry was completely free from possible flooding, and most importantly, it was possible to solve a long-term environmental problem and stop the discharge of water from the bottom of the dolomite quarry into local rivers. In addition, in 2020, the construction of new environmental structures within the framework of new production complexes under construction continued. We are talking, in particular, about the environmental facilities of the new coke oven battery No. 12 and the reconstructed workshop for the collection and processing of chemical products.
