Prosecutor's Office protested contract for reclamation of waste from Baikal Pulp and Paper Mill

The Baikal interregional environmental prosecutor's office submitted to the Minister of Natural Resources and Ecology of the Irkutsk Region the submission of a contract with Irkutskgeofizika (included in Rosgeology) for the disposal of waste from the Baikal Pulp and Paper Mill, the press service of the Green Front reported. Earlier, the Prosecutor General's Office recognized that the waste reclamation project, which was the basis of the concluded contract, was not in accordance with the environmental legislation of the Russian Federation.

As reported, the regional ministry has already taken measures to develop a technical specification for the adjustment of the project for the elimination of waste from the Baikal Pulp and Paper Mill and the conclusion of an additional agreement to the contract with JSC Irkutskgeofizika. "Unfortunately," Rosgeology "by all the truths and crooks tries to drag a deliberately flawed project. Fortunately, the Prosecutor General's Office does not consistently prevent it from doing so. Now the task of both ours and the public of the Irkutsk region is to study in detail the new terms of reference in order not to allow questionable technologies to push Baikal towards a catastrophe on the edge of which it has been for many years. We will ask the government of the region for all information concerning the new adjustment of the project, "the commentary of the chairman of the Green Front, Sergei Vinogradov, appears in the message.

Ministry of Environment of the Irkutsk Region and JSC "Irkutskgeofizika" 22 December 2017 signed a contract for the work on the elimination of waste accumulated as a result of the activities of JSC Baikal Pulp and Paper Mill. The contract price is almost 6 billion rubles. 79% of financing was supposed to be received within the framework of the federal program "Protection of Lake Baikal and socio-economic development of the Baikal natural territory at 2012 - 2020 years", the rest - funds of the region. The contract implied the use of the project of OOO VEB-Engineering, approved by the State Ecological Expertise in 2014. However, in 2016, the Prosecutor General's Office, based on expert assessments of the Irkutsk Scientific Center of the SB RAS, warned about the inadmissibility of using the solutions laid down in the project, and made a presentation to the Minister of Natural Resources of the Russian Federation, Sergei Donskoy. Nevertheless, in November 2017 in Baikalsk public discussions took place on the environmental impact assessment of this project, at which the environmentalists of the Green Front recorded a new attempt to conduct design solutions blocked by the Prosecutor General's Office.
