NLMK launches new real-time air quality monitoring system
NLMK Group, a global steel company, has implemented a new real-time system for air quality monitoring at NLMK Lipetsk and Stoilensky. The new equipment collects data for a more granular and reliable tracking of the sites’ environmental impact.
The new system is deployed as small sensor stations across the sanitary protection boundaries of the facilities. The specialised sensors measure the concentrations of controlled substances and feed the readings into a centralised system every five minutes. A centralised cockpit allows ecologists to monitor the environment and respond to deviations. The system also accounts for changes in the weather in order to adjust production processes accordingly whenever necessary. The two sites were outfitted with 12 sensor sets.
A similar system is to be installed at Altai-Koks by the end of the year.
