UFA, October 8 (Itar-Tass) — Interregional eco-forum Ural Ecology – Industrial Security-2012 that opened in Ufa on Monday focuses on environmental problems.
“The aim of the forum and specialized exhibition is to demonstrate best achievements in eco-technologies and research, to introduce new technologies to control, utilize, reprocess and bury the waste,” Deputy Minister of Natural Resources and Ecology of the Republic of Bashkortostan, Ildus Yakhin, said.
“The forum first of all provides a platform, where representatives of regional government, industrial companies, research and public organizations exchange opinions, proposals and best practices,” he said. “Only such consolidation of efforts can successfully resolve the tasks of environmental protection.”
“Ecological problems are especially pressing for the republic, whose territory contains over 200 industrial enterprises. In 2011 the emission of polluting agents from stationary sources exceeded 406,000 tons,” he said.
“We need to resolve the issues concerning the construction of purification facilities, solid household and industrial waste management facilities and introduction of efficient technologies in environmental protection,” Yakhin said.
The forum will last until October 10.
