Experts of GCE Group talk about ecological problem in Novokuznetsk (Russia)


RIA Novosti. The court, prosecutor, as well as the sanitary inspectors have to determine whether any harm can cause to the citizens the construction of the ferroalloy plant in the center of Novokuznetsk (Kemerovo region, Russia) - according to the ecology experts in the interview to RIA Novosti.

Previously, the residents protested the construction of the plant, being carried out by the Siberian Mining and Metallurgical Company (SMMC). They also addressed the issue to the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation, which has promised to investigate the situation. The Novokuznetsk authorities and the SMMC in late 2011 agreed to suspend indefinitely the launch of ferroalloy plant till the time of receiving the results of the additional international environmental assessments.

 “The sanitary rules of the atmospheric air protection say that if the territory has the maximum permissible concentration (MPC) of pollutants in the air, no projects of construction, reconstruction and others can be carried out. This is the most important thing. The sanitary doctor must come to the site to measure the MPC, and then need to file a lawsuit to ban the construction”, - said Alex Kiselyov, the head of the Toxic Programme of the Greenpeace Russia.

GCE Group Experts suggest to appeal to the prosecutor to verify the design documentation and the calculation of the sanitary protection zone (SPZ) around the plant.

“No project will be approved without the sanitary protection zone project that has obtained the  consent from the Rospotrebnadzor, and in which the buffer zone is determined, that separates the plant from the civil construction sites (residential buildings, schools, offices and so on). Because of the buffer zone the negative impact standards at the SPZ border do not exceed the limit”, - told to RIA Novosti Tatiana Nifontova, the Director of Ecology of GCE Group.

In this the SMMC states about the environmental safety of the plant under construction, which, as seen from the company’s website, is scheduled to be at its full capacity in the III quarter of 2012.

“All of the exhaust emissions of dust and gas ... will be treated to an environmentally safe content of dust and harmful substances in accordance with the national standard GOST 12.1.007-76, and to the sanitary rules and regulations, sanitary standards in force in the Russian Federation”, - says the company's website.

The construction of the plant started since 2008 at the location of a former steel plant, the capacity of the new plant is 53 000 tons of ferrosilicomanganese per year. At the plant must work five ferroalloy furnaces: four ore reduction and one plasma furnaces. Investment in the project is 1.4 billion rubles.
