Safe Technologies of Arctic Development
ST IG took part in the international forum ‘Arctic: Today and the Future’, held on December 4-6, 2017 at the Expoforum exhibition site, at the Pulkovo Heights. A high priority was assigned to the development of the Arctic region by the Government of the Russian Federation, which explains the presence of prominent Russian industrialists and politicians at the forum. New developments of Safe Technologies IG were presented at the stand of the Committee on Industrial Policy and Innovation. During the forum, the General Director of the company Konstantin Ladygin told the Minister of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov on the activities of the company and what it can offer for the development of the Far North. The head of the ministry was presented with both innovative and well-proven technological solutions of ST IG:
- standers for discharge/loading of liquid hydrocarbon media, including LNG;
- the plant of low-temperature pyrolysis for obtaining secondary energy raw materials from oily waste;
- small-scale complexes of thermal neutralization for utilization of a wide range of industrial and municipal waste;
- intermodal tank-containers for storage, transportation and delivery of dangerous and cryogenic media.
The representative of Safe Technologies IG also spoke at a round table chaired by the head of the Expert Council on Housing and Communal Services under the Government of the Russian Federation Alexey Makrushin, attended by Andrey Chibis, Deputy Minister of Housing and Communal Services of the Russian Federation, Amirkhan Amirkhanov, Deputy Head of the Federal Service for Supervision of Natural Resources, Vladimir Prokopyev, Chairman of the Permanent Committee of the State Assembly (Il Tumen) of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) on Land Relations, Natural Resources and Ecology.
At the round table on ecology and waste management in the Arctic, the ecosystems of the region were noted to be unique and the possibility of appropriate adjustment of regulatory and legislative acts regarding environmental activities in the Far North was discussed.
As Andrey Chibis noted: ‘The waste management in the Arctic region has a number of features, primarily severe weather conditions and complex logistics. This is also indicated by the failed competition to select one of the regional operators for waste management in the territory of the Sakha Republic (Yakutia) — there are not so many companies able to provide proper services to the northern territories. And from this point of view, the main principle of the new waste management system — the transparency of working conditions and the possibility of long-term planning — becomes especially important.’
The delegate of ST IG stressed that incineration with subsequent multi-stage gas cleaning in conditions of impossibility of waste landfilling in permafrost should be a priority technology for the treatment of solid industrial waste, and that the industrial group has developed, manufactured and successfully operated relevant equipment in the permafrost region.
