Terrible Russian air pollution to this day!!

Post by pdq67 » Fri Nov 16, 2018 7:32 pm

Talk about air pollution!



"https://www.theguardian.com/cities/2016 ... city-clean"

Dammed near 2,00,000 tons of air pollution a year!

Please read the link about Norilsk!!

And fwiw, I have worked on a job at INCO, Sudbury, Ontario, Canada one time on one of their Peirce-Smith type Horizontal Nickel converters.

An INCO tid-bit!

"The Inco Superstack in Sudbury, Ontario, with a height of 380 metres, is the tallest chimney in Canada and the Western hemisphere, and the second tallest freestanding chimney in the world after the GRES-2 Power Station in Kazakhstan. It is also the second tallest freestanding structure of any type in Canada, behind the CN Tower but ahead of First Canadian Place. It is the 40th tallest freestanding structure in the world. The Superstack is located on top of the largest nickel smelting operation I"

The INCO stack was so big that an 18 wheeler could turn around in its base because the stacks bottom was elevated and the space under it probably used for storage?

180 miles north of the Arctic Circle! Hokey Smokes! That's frosty.
I think you just found the cause of global warming and the ozone layer problem. Good job.

Dave,

I have posted about this before so looked back into it.

They were supposed to put an acid plant on the stack back years ago to cut the SO2 pollution, but apparently haven't been able to get it financed??

Go figure and I think that the housing yards soil in the town is so polluted that they can be mined for heavy metals back through the smelter!!

I took a look at the town via Google Earth.
The whole area looks like a toxic dump.

Isn't the bottom line here really, the taller the stack is is based on the more crap one expects to dump into the atmosphere? #-o

I was hoping that they would put an acid plant in and stop all this air pollution, but guess not.

And right about stack heights!

It's called, "pollution control by dispersion"! But over time the general area surrounding a stack ends up getting polluted.

The EPA was trying to combat this through their CAMR rule for coal-fired power plants!! But got shot down because it really is a drastic and expensive way to do it. And fwiw, most coal-fired power plant stacks radii of pollution is only like 25 miles or so for what CAMR was trying to control.. (Something like 12 or more heavy metals)...

Now for SOx and NOx pollution, it's regional in scope!
