Estimate of the environmental impact of emissions of the constructed Taishet aluminium factory


Foreward-looking estimates are made for the fluo rine mass deposited in the region of the constructed aluminum factory as a fraction of the entire emitted fluorine mass. We obtained prognostic map schemes that illustrate the future influence of emissions from the constructed Taishet aluminum factory on the underlying surface of the region. It is shown that when the Taishet aluminum factory achieves its planned production capacity, its emission products may reach Bratsk.
