To reduce emissions of coal dust due to complaints of local residents obliged the port of Vanino
It is reported on Monday by the press service of the Far Eastern Transport Prosecutor's Office.

“The Vaninsky District Court of the Khabarovsk Territory fully satisfied the claims of the prosecutor. Port Vanino OJSC is obliged to build dimensional walls around the coal depots to prevent the cargo from spilling, to approve new standards for maximum permissible emissions and to get permission to release harmful (polluting) substances into the atmospheric air, ”the message says.

It is noted that all violations of the port must be eliminated by the end of December 2016. Equipment for dust suppression and dust collection should be applied continuously.

Air pollution inspection prosecutors organized after numerous complaints of residents of the village of Vanino, Vaninsky District, Khabarovsk Territory, about coal dust.

Experts have found that the air is polluted due to violations during transshipment and storage of coal in the seaport of Vanino. A number of administrative cases were brought, officials fined a total of 60 thousand rubles by the prosecutor’s office also demanded criminal punishment for violation of the rules for handling environmentally hazardous substances and wastes (part 1 Art. 247 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation), but the criminal case was denied due to lack of reason, clarified in the press service of the prosecutor's office.

As previously reported, in January 2016, Vanino residents posted on the Internet a petition to the leadership of the region and the country with a request to solve an environmental problem, due to which they are forced to breathe coal dust, Interfax notes.

Port Vanino OJSC is the largest stevedoring company in the port of Vanino. Along with universal moorings, it includes specialized terminals: ferry, container and alumina, as well as a port fleet that performs mooring operations, carrying passengers and supplying ships with water.
