The representatives of the city industrial companies: KZhRK, CGOK, Sukhaya Balka, ArcelorMittal Kriviy Rih and Dniepropetrovsk Region Council, Federation of Employers of Dniepropetrovsk region, environment organizations, Environment division of Kriviy Rih City Executive Committee, project team of DMT Consulting discussed potential solutions of the pressing issue for the city – reduction of industrial load on the Kryvbas water basins. Kriviy Rih iron ore basin utilizes up to 12 million cubic meters of mine water annually.
Socially responsible companies, such as ArcelorMittal Kriviy Rih, make efforts to minimize the industrial impact on the area water resources. The company uses part of pumped out mine water in the production processes to water mine faces, during mining operations, for dust laying on the process roads, fully covering the cost of mine water flushing and dilution.
Vladimir Teslyuk, Acting COO, PJSC ArcelorMittal Kriviy Rih: “We are glad to work together with German Society for International Cooperation. We undertook the significant investment obligations and are committed to fulfill them. This includes our work at improving the environment in Kriviy Rih and region, continuously investing in the environment projects. In 2016, the company invested about UAH 475 million in the environment protection actions”. (AMKR/Ukrainian metal)
