Rehabilitation of waste processing factories

Chelyabinsk

Detailed description of the Good Practice

Our practice has attained the Objectives aimed in the best way. Cenosphere-producing factories are organized in 4 cities of the Ural region. Thermoelectric power stations’ wastes are being diminished. The demand for cenospheres is 10 times larger than our producibility. Cenosphere consumers demand to increase the cenosphere production 10-12 times as compared with to-day yield.

At present, we are developing a production of metallurgical raw from ash/slag wastes, which will allow to raise the level of processing ash/slag wastes up to 80%.

Motivation for Developing the Initiative. The vicinities if working thermoelectric power stations in Chelyabinsk, Ekaterinburg, Perm districts experienced a genuine ecological catastrophe. The Governments of these districts raised an objective to utilize the dumps. We invented processes of treating them and embodied them in our factories. A major part of the reduce received by means of our practices is used for improving the ecological condition in these districts and the rest is exported. The developments enabling this were possessed by our partner Trelleborg Fillite Ltd., Runcom, England, and our cooperation enriched us with new processes. We have been co-operating 6 years and have contracted an agreement for further 15 years.

Our practices improved employment for a part of unemployed population of five cities: Chelyabinsk, Ekaterinburg, Troitsk, Asbest, Malyshevo. These cities were faced to serious problems; now all the wastes of thermoelectric power stations are being processed.

There were financial problems during the embodiment of practice project, and they remain partially now. For an increase in the production of cenospheres, an additional financing is needed. For the embodiment of the practice, private share-holders were drawn in, each invested its own capital-

Our actions are agreed with the Governments of Chelyabinsk and Ekaterinburg districts. During the embodiment of the practices project, we found a vast support from the Chelyabinsk district’s Governor P. Su-min and the Ekaterinburg districts Governor E. Rossel. They rendered a big political support, because our practice significantly solved a social problem of decreasing the unemployment in the Ural region.

Urallite’s reserves available were all mobilized. The leading role in the practices was taken by the Urallite’s General Director Ivan Prokopiev. He also embodied the practice, for he is a Honored Inventor of Russia, Doctor of technical sciences, Academician of the International Academy of Inventions.
