During the Forum representatives of the Group discussed with the local suppliers a wide range of issues on regional cooperation in the field of implementation of modern technological solutions in the design, manufacture and implementation of waste water treatment plants and increasing productivity and efficiency of existing equipment for waste water treatment at the innovative Complexes of the Group.

Despite the fact that the refractory industry does not require significant volumes of water consumption, Magnezit Group treats water resources of the regions of its presence with care and takes measures to minimize their pollution within the framework of its own environmental policy. According to the program of careful treatment of water resources, new local treatment facilities are built to purify industrial waste, storm and drainage water, a system of recycling water supply is developed, and the quality of water discharge is constantly monitored. In particular, a large-scale project is being implemented to divert mine and pit water for subsequent filtration into the waste pits, Stepnoy and Berezovsky, which will reduce the negative impact on the water body.
