In the Sverdlovsk region, a dry ash removal system has been commissioned at the coal-fired Reftinskaya power plant operated by Enel Russia. This major environmental project supported by foreign investors will help minimize the plant’s impact on the region’s environment, while making its waste a source for manufacturing construction materials. The total investment in the project amounted to some 12.5bn roubles.
The dry ash handling system introduced at the Reftinskaya power plant will prevent deforestation on considerable territories designated as ash disposal areas, lessen the plant’s impact on the atmosphere and water resources, in particular, it can significantly reduce water consumption used to remove ash and slag waste. Meanwhile, almost the entire ash waste can be used for industrial purposes: in manufacturing concrete and construction mixes, roadbuilding and brick manufacturing.
