UrBC, Chelyabinsk, April 23, 2019. ChelPipe Group’s member enterprise Chelyabinsk Pipe Rolling Plant (ChelPipe) hosted United Russia’s 1st Environmental Forum this week. The plant’s Vysota 239 Department served as a venue for the session on air emissions in industrial locations as the core of the environment vs. the economy conflicts. The talks given dwelled on air quality and on the Russian President’s Executive Order On National Goals and Strategic Objectives of the Russian Federation through to 2024, the company’s press service reports.

ChelPipe’s Managing Director Evgeny Gubanov talked about the plant’s experience with launching advanced, atmospheric impact-reducing technologies.

‘The Group has always been very focused on environmental safety issues. Our newest production departments rely on the most progressive solutions that meet all of the Russian and global environmental standards. The company implements a number of long-term programs on Water, Air, Land Reclamation, and Industrial Waste. In 2019, the Group will direct more than RUB 800 million to green projects,’ Gubanov said.

ChelPipe Group’s pipe-manufacturing division’s member enterprises are also working on a full set of measures to improve the quality of air. ChelPipe, for one, introduced a dust meter on its production site and had its sanitary and epidemiological control lab upgraded in the last few years. Pervouralsk New Pipe Plant (PNTZ) launched a fixed monitoring station for air pollution control in residential areas and the Russian metallurgical industry’s first automated air monitoring system.

The Group’s pipe-making plants also established fixed sanitary protection areas. The Group also intends to introduce a gas-scrubbing unit for its flame-cutting appliances (estimated costs: RUB 20 million) and replace all the gas-scrubbing fixtures at ChelPipe (estimated cost: RUB 180 million) by 2024. These are the best environmentally ‘aware’ technologies available to date.
