Arctic Yearbook 2014
In order to provide reliable information about the level of impact on the environment, objects
category I, stationary sources, the list of which is established by the Government of the Russian
Federation, will have to equip their stationary sources with automated tools measuring and
accounting emissions and discharges as well as technical communication to the state fund of the
state environmental monitoring data.
The Important Environmental Protection Measures at the Current Stage
Thus, in the context of the transition to technological standardization for environmentally
hazardous facilities in the Russian Arctic, environmental protection measures such as the
following become important:
Creation and implementation of automatic control system for the composition and
volume of wastewater discharges;
Creation of automatic control systems for air pollution, equipping emission stationary
sources of control devices, construction, purchase and equipment of laboratories for air
Construction of facilities and manufactories of raw materials production or finished
products from production wastes;
Research and project works aimed at the environmental safety of production.
Now, companies can finance the implementation of theses measures within the accrued sum of
payments for negative impacts on the environment, by reducing this sum on incurred expenses.
Stricter requirements in the field of environmental protection will have a major impact on the
enterprises that could potentially become significant polluters. Such companies need to use
methods of strategic environmental planning to receive economic benefits from the state.
Not only environmental quality of products will be critical in the competitive struggle in the long
term, but also the mode of production with use of the BAT, which combine minimal negative
impact on the environment, and the rational use of nature and economic efficiency.
There is the economic possibility and practicability of using regulatory mechanisms to reduce
fees for negative impact on the environment as the instrument to stimulate the transition of
enterprises to the best available technologies.
