Russia, Volgograd region


The Southern Industrial Zone of Volgograd, Russia

  • environmental emergency

  • wastewater collection/evaporation ponds of Khimpromand Kausticcompanies

  • wastewater collection ponds with their overall area of 160 km2 caused air, soil and groundwater pollution on the area of 720 km2

  • More that 50 chemicals compounds were identified in the pollution zone (chlorine, organofluorine compounds, phenols, arsenic, lead, vinyl chloride, etc.)

  • SAICM GPA: WORK AREAS ADDRESSING KNOWLEDGE AND INFORMATION

  • Develop a national PRTR/emission inventory design process involving affected and interested parties.

STAGES OF PRTR DEVELOPMENT

Step 1: establishment of a working group, incorporating:

  • non-governmental organisations;

  • representatives of governmental environmental authorities

  • industrial facilities

  • medical and technical research and education facilities

  • mass media outlets

Step 2: selection of a facility (criteria):

  • a major facility, with particularly hazardous toxic pollutants in its emissions and releases (the largest emissions/releases in qualitative and quantitative terms)

  • top managers of the facility are ready to implement a policy of open provision of information on its emissions and discharges

  • a well equipped analytical laboratory

  • active public involvement.

  • 18 enterprises (chemical, petrochemical, metallurgical, mechanical industry, housing and public utilities)

  • Toxic releases and emissions into water and air, waste

  • For reporting purposes, 32 chemicals were selected as the most relevant pollutants in the Southern Industrial Zone of Volgograd

  • ammonium nitrogen

  • nitrogen

  • aluminum

  • aniline salt

  • benzene

  • pH

  • ferriferrous

  • calcium

  • dimethylbenzene

  • petrochemicals

  • nickel

  • nitrate ions

  • mercury

  • phosphates

  • phosphorous

Step 4: software application with

information on:

  • sampling points

  • list of chemicals

  • emission limits for water, air and waste


Further steps
Further steps

  • Collect data and update the database

  • Access to computer

  • Dissemination of the system among other facilities

  • Planning transition from "end-of-the-pipe" control to control of a chemical's life cycle at the facility


Further steps1
Further steps

  • INCREASE THE NUMBER OF FACILITIES

  • IMPROVE THE REPORTING SYSTEM ON WASTE (types/components)

  • WORK WITH FACILITIES ON DATA INTERPRETATION

  • WORK WITH NGOs, CITIZENS AND MEDIA ON DATA INTERPRETATION


Further steps2
Further steps

  • development of PRTRs at local and regional levels is the most optimal way for introduction of a system of environmental reporting inRussia.

  • Stakeholder participation: NGOs, facilities, media

  • develop PRTRs at the base of governmental environmental enforcement bodies or at the base of major industrial facilities-polluters
