The plant «Crimean Titan» in the North of Crimea, kislotostabilen which has caused the chemical release would not run without need of modernization, reported RIA Novosti, the state Duma Deputy from the Crimea region Michael Sheremet.

Kislotostabilen chemical plant «Crimean Titan» is an open reservoir, which in recent years has significantly shallowed, leading to the increase in the concentration of the remaining acid and evaporation of various chemicals into the atmosphere. The sump is diluted with water supplied via the North-Crimean channel, but after the reunification of the Peninsula with Russia, Ukraine has blocked the supply of the Dnieper water.

«The plant will not start until the until will the inventory production process. Today it is not linked with any rules, requirements and regulations. Before modernization, in part at least environmental security, to run the plant will not be», — told RIA Novosti Sheremet, who visited the victim of kimwipes region.

According to him, if the owner does not find the necessary funds, then the Republic will be involved in this process.

«There are different forms of cooperation, including public-private partnerships. We need this production, it is socially important. This city-forming enterprise, so we are keen to continue to work but without the danger for the local population», — said Sheremet.

The situation with kislotoustoichivam escalated in late August when because of the emission of pollutants on rooftops and trees of the city of Armyansk and the surrounding villages formed the oily coating with yellow tinge. The fourth of September has recorded the maximum allowable concentration of sulfur dioxide in the air. Located next to a chemical plant «Crimean Titan» decided to stop for two weeks.

To normalize the situation and was 7 Sep. The region returned to natural background. This contributed mainly to the decrease in air temperature and precipitation, which reduced the evaporation of kilocalories. In addition, we began the neutralization of the floating sections of kilocalories using lime mortar.
