Voskresensk Mineral Fertilizers invests in the environmental safety
Voskresensk Mineral Fertilizers (part of Uralchem) has started implementing a set of measures aimed at reducing the volume and improving the quality of wastewater. The project is designed to exclude the possibility of harmful substances entering the environment, even in the case of emergencies.
The works will be conducted at the main sites of the enterprise, in the ammophos workshops No.1 and No.2, and the wet-process phosphoric acid workshop No.3. The contractor will dismantle the worn-out chemical protection made of acid-resistant bricks and the old concrete base, after which they will install a new base and a special protective material.
The works in the ammophos No.1 and No.2 plants will take place during the autumn repair campaign and will mainly be related to the repair of acid-proof pallets. The works in the wet-process phosphoric acid workshop No.3 are planned to be conducted in three stages and completed by the end of October 2021. The total repair area will exceed 4 thousand square meters.
“For our company, carrying out such a large-scale complex of works at the main production sites has not only important production but also environmental significance,” said Deputy Chief Production Engineer Igor Karagichev. “This strategic step will improve the environmental safety of production processes and reduce the man-made impact on the environment. Appropriate measures will make it possible to more efficiently collect wastewater and return it to the production process, as well as automatically regulate the level of wastewater in the tanks and prevent its overflow. Such measures will not only lead to savings and rational use of water resources and reduce the loss of raw materials but will also create a reliable mechanism for control and monitoring of environmental risks.”
