In 2013, the Federal State Statistics Service( Rosstat) published a bulletin "Key environmental indicators," which, among other things, presented data for 2012 for 181 cities in Russia for emissions of air pollutants by stationary sources and road transport.
In 2015, the Rosstat website published data for 2014, but the focus in the study was made on the regions in general, rather than on individual cities. The list of cities in the 2015 study is much smaller( 37 cities) than in the 2013 study, while the 2015 study does not have data on automobile emissions. Therefore, in this rating of the most environmentally polluting cities in Russia, according to the total volume of emissions, the data from the 2013 bulletin are used, and not 2015.
It should be noted that the distribution of seats in the rating by total volume of emissions does not always reflect the real difference in environmental pollution of cities. For example, according to the total volume of emissions, Moscow is in second place, and Krasnoyarsk is on the 11th. But in Krasnoyarsk, sulfur dioxide( more than 80%) prevails in emissions of pollutants, which is 2 times more toxic than nitrogen dioxide, whose compounds in pollutant emissions in Moscow make up about 50%.
1 place: Norilsk( Krasnoyarsk Territory).The annual volume of air emissions to the atmosphere of Norilsk is 1959.5 thousand tons, 99.5% falls on stationary sources, and the main contribution to pollution is made by the city-forming enterprise Norilsk Nickel.
