Russian steel maker United Metallurgical Company OMK decommissioned a hot dip galvanizing line at its OMK Energomash plant in Belgorod in 2021. This decision will reduce emissions of pollutants into the atmosphere of Belgorod by 2.8 tonnes per year and 350 tons per year to reduce the amount of 2-4 class waste produced by the plant. The equipment was dismantled by a specialized accredited organization. The hot dip galvanizing line at the plant was opened in 2001. Italian-made equipment made it possible to apply a zinc anti-corrosion coating to any metal structures to increase their service life and improve consumer qualities. However, the hot-dip galvanizing line was a potentially harmful production. The enterprise monthly exported chemical waste to other regions of Russia, where there are special plants for their neutralization. The vapors that formed during the coating of the products with a layer of zinc had to be thoroughly filtered before they were released into the atmosphere. The hot-dip galvanizing line was located in the building for the production of metal structures in the coating area. According to modern standards, such lines should be located in separate, separately standing rooms, with systems that provide ventilation and air filtration. On the vacated areas, fire-retardant coatings are now being applied more cost-effective and in demand today. Trends in recent years show an increase in demand for this particular type of coatings for metal structures.
