LLC RK-Grand is an environmentally conscious enterprise. Enhancement of its environmental safety and conservation efforts are among the priorities in its operations.
The environment-related activities of the Mill are compliant with the applicable Russian and international regulations; the Mill pays great attention to the environmental situation in the area of its operations, utilizes the latest eco-friendly and energy saving technologies and equipment, strives to minimize any negative environmental impact and ensures the environmental safety of its production.
The enterprise runs a comprehensive ecological program that makes it possible to improve the environmental conditions around the Mill.
Primary objectives in conservation:
- - to improve the efficiency of its waste treatment facilities;
- - to ensure a sustainable use of natural resources, including forest and waste sources;
- - to adopt low waste technologies in its production processes.
The focus areas for the conservation activities of LLC RK-Grand are: study and minimization of any negative impact on water and air resources, management of production waste disposal. The Mill’s Environmental Protection Department and its accredited laboratory measure the quality of wastewater, gas emissions, air quality in the surrounding area, monitor the impact of industrial discharges and emissions on natural water, air and soil in the area.
In August 2017, the Mill executed a project whereby the boiler room in the thermoelectric power station was re-equipped with a multi fuel boiler that will be used to burn bark waste from its wood shop and residue from its waste treatment facilities. In 2015, the Mill’s WWTP sludge dewatering facility was re-equipped within the same project.
The above efforts make it possible to use natural fuel (fuel oil) in a more efficient manner and to reduce the Mill’s environmental load (by disposing of WWTP sludge and bark waste).
