UrBC, Yekaterinburg, January 15, 2020. EVRAZ West-Siberian Metallurgical Plant (EVRAZ ZSMK) won Kemerovo Region’s annual Eco-Leader Contest as Enterprise, EVRAZ Holding Siberia’s Corporate Communications Center reports.

‘The plant was awarded for proactive efforts to ensure environmental sustainability and improve the locals’ environmental culture. Elena Kornienko and Olga Gritsenko from the plant’s Environmental Protection Service also received thank-you letters for their contribution to Environmental Protection Days,’ the company says.

Every year, the company takes part in the all-Russian Environmental Protection Days and Let’s Do It! Days. EVRAZ ZSMK also helps with urban improvements of streets, parks, ponds, and coastal areas in Novokuznetsk.

‘We work on three major projects in the field of air quality improvement: reducing our sulphur dioxide emissions; reducing the aromatic hydrocarbon emissions to do with the cooling of coke gases; and reducing our cinder and soot emissions coming from the boilers at West-Siberian Power Station. In 2019, we got our gas- and dust-filtering facilities at the power plant upgraded. This year, the plan is to get the electro-filters at Boiler Unit 10 modernized as well. Additionally, a large-scale program has been adopted to reduce pollution of the local ponds, with the goal of going down to the maximum permissible discharge limits for the plant’s residual water,’ says acting Senior Environmental Engineer at EVRAZ ZSMK Olga Shadura.
