Emissions from the metallurgical plant in Temirtau will be reduced by 20-25%. This was announced by akim of Karaganda region Zhenis Kasymbek at a press conference in the Central communications.

 

 

“Yesterday we in Temirtau held a large meeting with the city's assets, with the participation of all industrial enterprises. Pollution in Temirtau is the most problematic issue and it is caused by metallurgical plant. Just a month and a half ago, the Ministry of ecology signed a Memorandum with the enterprise, according to which a schedule for reducing emissions of harmful substances into the atmosphere by this enterprise was determined. Until 2024, as far as I remember, " Zh. Kasymbek said.

 

According to him, emissions from Arcelor Mittal enterprises will be reduced, in general by 20-25%. But this is not enough, so at the meeting this issue was discussed in detail. The company has changed management and plans to hold a separate meeting on emissions in January 2020.

 

The company is now committed to replacing process equipment as part of an investment program to reduce emissions.

 

In addition, the draft Environmental code, which tightens the requirements, is in Parliament. The mayor noted that these measures will give their result, but the largest enterprises need to take additional measures. For example, for "Kazakhmys" in Balkhash a program to reduce emissions has been implemented for several years, and tangible results have already been achieved. Until 2024, emissions from the Balkhash copper smelter will be minimized. Such work is conducted with all enterprises of the region.
