17.02.2012 — News
Azot, a subsidiary of URALCHEM, OJSC, lowered its emissions by 2%, in comparison with 2010.
The company's press office told RusBusinessNews that the new prilled, waterproof, ammonium nitrate filters that have been installed on its plant equipment have helped the company to reduce the concentrations of ammonium nitrate and nitrogen oxide in its emissions. Thanks to some updated water purification equipment, the percentage of suspended solids in Azot's discharged wastewater has decreased by 8.7%, ammonium ions have been reduced by 40.7%, carbamides by 35.4%, potassium by 18%, and sodium by 0.5%.
Azot will continue to work in 2012 to reduce its negative impact on the environment. The company plans to purchase a new refrigerator-condenser for its facility that produces weak nitric acid and to overhaul the distillation columns that treat wastewater in its carbamide plant, thus helping to reduce emissions of ammonium ions, nitrites, and nitrates. Azot also intends to reclaim a landfill for industrial and residential solid waste in the city of Berezniki.
The Unified Chemical Company URALCHEM, OJSC is one of the largest companies in the market for nitrogen and phosphate fertilizers in Russia and the CIS. Its subsidiaries produce over 2.5 million tons of ammonium nitrate, 2.8 million tons of ammonia, 0.8 million tons of monoammonium and diammonium phosphates, 0.8 million tons of compound fertilizers, and 1.2 million tons of carbamide every year.
