Gazprom reports reduction in emissions

Factories of the Russian gas monopolist Gazprom reduced the volume of noxious emissions by 15 percent over the past five years due to the introduction of new technologies and the installment of new equipment. This data was reported by Gazprom's experts at a seminar today. The seminar was held at the Second Russian Oil and Gas Week in Moscow and it was devoted to ecology and environmental issues in regions where oil and gas are produced.

The report presented at the seminar says that Gazprom is improving the efficiency of its existing clearing equipment and the installment of new one. Moreover, the company is taking efforts to introduce new equipment for waste storages. Another important set of measures implemented by Gazprom concerns the program for reducing the noxious affect of motor vehicles on the environment. The program is aimed at the transfer of motor vehicles from gasoline to natural gas. This program will be implemented in more than 40 regions of Russia. Moscow became the first noticeable example of this program back in 2000 when 6,000 motor vehicles of the city public transport were converted to use natural gas. In 2001, about 2000 motor vehicles of Gazprom and some other companies were converted to use natural gas.
