Environmental and ecological protection
As of 2018
We regard environmental protection and safety of our production as one of our key priorities.
The environmental management system of Tikhvin Freight Car Building Plant is based on the requirements of the international standard GOST R ISO 14001 “Environment Management Systems”.
The system allows for assessing environmental risks at production facilities, followed by developing a register of significant environmental features and planning risk reduction measures at a given facility.
Compliance with the environmental principles of Tikhvin Freight Car Building Plant, organizational and engineering measures, upgrading and revamping of production facilities, implementing advanced technologies and refining the existing technologies allow the plant to consistently mitigate the environmental footprint, and to improve public health in the city.
The foundry parts of the plant are equipped with a dust cleaning system with cartridge-type air filters in addition to specialized waste gas cleaning systems. The car paint manufacturing ensures extra treatment of each process emission source to minimize pollution. Regular environmental monitoring corroborates the high efficiency of gas treatment and dust separating facilities.
