We recognise that during our business activities large volumes of waste are generated (including from metal production and general (non-mining) waste) and mining waste, such as overburden, tailings, and barren rock. We strive to implement the best available management practices in this area, in order to use natural resources rationally and, as a result, reduce waste generation.
Utilise 95% of waste from metal production and general waste
Recycle 50% of mining waste
Our waste management strategy comprises the following areas (listed in order of priority):
Under no circumstances do we incinerate or store waste outside special facilities, in line with applicable legislation and EVRAZ Fundamental Environmental Requirements. We actively promote separate waste collection systems at our enterprises, in order to facilitate its further recycling.
