MMK Reduces Impact on Water Reservoirs

26 September 2018 (11:14)

UrBC, Yekaterinburg, September 26, 2018. Magnitogorsk Iron & Steel Works (MMK) is working on a number of projects to reduce the plant’s man-made impact on the local water reservoirs, MMK’s press service reports.

One upcoming project is to stop dumping any water in Magnitogorsk Pond entirely. To achieve this goal, the plant is now investing in reconstruction of its water circulation system: the chill tank will have to get bigger, among other things; also, a dam will be put up to protect the pond from the impact of MMK’s water circulation system. All this is expected to stop any inflow of manufacturing water into the pond. The building and assembly jobs will probably get completed as soon as late October.

Builders are also working on the dam edge and are planning to plant some greens there once it’s finished. Additionally, fish will be placed in the pond.

Moreover, MMK is trying to reduce the amount of manufacturing water going to the chill tank itself: the goal is to improve the quality of water in the tank as well as that of the circulating water per se.

The plant currently operates forty-one circulating water systems all in all.
