The Baikal interregional environmental prosecutor’s office caught air damage to an Ilim group enterprise in Ust-Ilimsk. The company operates more than 200 sources of pollutant emissions into the air.

According to prosecutors, five of them worked without special gas purification plants. Moreover, in some cases, gases with a noticeable unpleasant odor - hydrogen sulfide and methyl mercaptan were released into the atmosphere. According to the press service of the department, the total emissions of pollutants amounted to more than 100 tons per year.

The court took the side of the prosecutor's office and ordered the company to install gas purification equipment. According to preliminary estimates, this work will cost the company 430 million rubles. Design work has already begun on the necessary equipment.
