Sverdlovsk Region Government: Reduced Emissions at Local Plants Caused by Dropping Outputs

Sverdlovsk Region-based Reftinskaya power station (the asset of Enel OGK-5) reduced its atmospheric emissions by 21.4% in 2011 compared with 2010 due to decreased electric power output, less heavy use of coal, and the need to stop power-generating unit 5 for reconstruction. The emissions of Gazprom’s Gazprom Transgaz Yugorsk went down by 15.3% due to cutting back on the amount of scheduled preventive repairs of pipeline sections and therefore reduced methane emissions; Rezhnickel’s atmospheric emissions declined by 14.6% because the company’s production output shrank and the plant stopped operating on November 9, 2011; Sredneuralsky Copper-Smelting Plant’s emissions decreased by 36.6% because the crude copper and sulphuric acid production volumes went down and a number of conservational measures was taken; Krasnogorskaya power station at TGK-9’s Sverdlovsky subsidiary reduced its emissions by 9.1% due to improved quality of coal used and increased share of natural gas in the total volume of burnt-up fuel; Nizhneturinskaya power station at TGK-9’s Sverdlovsky subsidiary reduced its emissions by 9.1% due to reduced volume of burnt-up fuel, and Nizhneserginsky Metal Goods Plant decreased its atmospheric emissions by 33% because of shrinking production outputs.
