The head of Crimean Parliament Vladimir Konstantinov finds it impossible termination of the activities of the plant «Crimean Titan» in Armyansk after a chemical release.

A state of emergency was introduced on Friday in the city of Armyansk and the surrounding villages in the North of Crimea, where in late August there is air pollution due to emissions of chemical substances. Konstantinov on Monday visited the factory, met with the team and his leadership.

«We want to keep the full enterprise. It is the city main, the total capacity of the investment exceeds $ 1 billion, in the case of closing it, nothing is impossible to replace. It would be a huge blow to the economy of the Crimea and especially Armenian, as company towns. Neither of which the closure should not be out of the question, all this provocative talk,» — said during the meeting at the plant Konstantinov.

The Director of the plant Andrey Akulov has informed that at the request of Rosprirodnadzor, the company will deal with operational elimination of violations of the technological cycle and the cleaning of emissions and effluents. In particular, it is planned to complete the neutralization of acidic wastewater and treatment system emissions, in compliance with European standards.

The situation with kislotoustoichivam chemical plant «Crimean Titan» has become aggravated in the end of August, when, due to emission of the pollutant on the roofs of houses and the leaves of the trees of the city of Armyansk and the surrounding villages formed the oily coating with yellow tinge. At the beginning of September has recorded the maximum allowable concentration of sulfur dioxide in the air. Chemical plant «Crimean Titan» is completely stopped. The government decided to evacuate children from the city of Armyansk and several villages of the district in health institutions.

Kislotostabilen is an open reservoir, built in the Soviet era. In recent years, the sump is considerably shallow, which led to the increase in the concentration of the remaining acid and evaporation of various chemicals into the atmosphere. The sump was filled with water coming through the North-Crimean channel, but after the reunification of the Peninsula with Russia, Ukraine has blocked the supply of the Dnieper water.
