UrBC, Yekaterinburg, February 8, 2017. EVRAZ Holding directed 1.2bn RUR to over forty environmental projects at its member enterprises Nizhniy Tagil Integrated Metallurgical Works (NTMK) and Kachkanar Ore Mining & Processing Enterprise (KGOK) last year, EVRAZ Holding Ural’s press office reports.

‘The company worked hard to reduce the environmental impact its coke and by-product facilities make and had some of the equipment at Coke Department 3 replaced or upgraded. The department’s harmful emissions are expected to drop 20% by the end of this year thanks to an upgraded dry coke quenching unit. This is one of the key points on our agenda for the Year of The Environment in Russia. Additionally, we are giving up on the obsolete equipment and introducing new, airtight crude benzene filling units. This cuts crude benzene emissions by 5,000 kg a year,’ the press office says.

Emissions also went down at the company’s converter shop. An up-to-date dust-exhaust system increased gas filtering efficiency fourfold.

EVRAZ NTMK keeps working to reduce its environmental impact and has managed to reduce its harmful emissions by around 15% since 2008.
