EuroChem to install two environmental monitoring stations at EuroChem-BMU

Pursuant to its voluntary air quality monitoring initiative, EuroChem will install two new monitoring stations in the towns of Mirny and Dolgogusevsky Khutor, in close proximity to its EuroChem-BMU subsidiary. The monitoring of air quality, carried out by local and state authorities, the media, and non-profit organizations, provides the Company with valuable environmental data.

The stations will provide real-time air quality data and measure the levels of a number of atmospheric pollutants. Additionally, meteorological systems will collect temperature, wind speed and direction, as well as pressure and humidity data. The installation of these two stations represents investments of 10 million roubles.

The two stations will be brought on line once monitoring parameters have been defined and tested. EuroChem specialists, working with local authorities and the Regional Department of Natural Resources and State Environmental Control, will use EuroChem-BMU’s next annual maintenance shutdown to configure the monitoring systems. By eliminating off-site sources of atmospheric emissions, EuroChem will be able to better monitor and address the impact of its operations.

The installation of these stations is part of EuroChem’s commitment to reduce its environmental impact in the regions where it operates. In 2010, similar monitoring stations were installed in Khan (Republic of Adygea), Tuapse (Krasnodar Region) and in Nevinnomyssk (Stavropol Region).
