As part of the implementation of the Environmental Strategy of Russian Railways, emissions of harmful substances into the atmosphere from stationary sources decreased by 13% in 2020 compared to the previous year.

The decrease was achieved by:

  • constructing new and reconstructing existing boilers;
  • converting boilers to environmentally-cleaner types of fuels (gas, pellets, renewable energy);
  • improving the efficiency of fuel combustion;
  • introducing electric heating;
  • eliminating small-scale coal boilers;
  • reconstructing existing and introducing new dust-capture equipment.
