On February 14, 2019, the Governor of the Nizhny Novgorod Region, Gleb Nikitin, made a presentation on the implementation of the national project “Ecology” at the Sochi Investment Forum. The presentation took place within the framework of the panel session “Ecology as an Indicator of the Quality of Life”.
Recall, by the decree of the President of Russia, Gleb Nikitin was appointed head of the working group of the State Council of the Russian Federation in the area of ​​"Ecology".

In particular, the session discussed measures to eliminate accumulated environmental damage at three sites in the Nizhny Novgorod region (Black Hole industrial waste dump, White Sea slime collector, Igumnovo solid waste landfill).

“Work on the elimination of objects of accumulated environmental damage are at the finish line. We are in the schedule of agreements concluded with the Ministry of Natural Resources of the Russian Federation and the contractor. I hope that this year we will put an end to this story, ”said Gleb Nikitin. “Now we can say that we managed to solve all the problems encountered in the process. The technologies that were incorporated in the project are embodied in specific equipment that has been tested. We took a unified position with the government of the country and did not change it, despite the fact that the technologies were originally unknown and developed during the preparation of documentation, and the amount of funding also changed. Now in the federal project “Clean Country” these objects are flagship. All objects of accumulated environmental damage are unique and for each need to develop a special technology. Now we can offer other regions both technology and equipment that was created during the preparation process and after completion of the work will become the property of the Nizhny Novgorod region, ”the governor added.

Dmitry Kobylkin, Minister of Natural Resources and Environment of the Russian Federation, positively assessed the experience of the Nizhny Novgorod Region in eliminating objects of accumulated environmental damage.

“Even when there are funds and orders, but there is no feedback from the territory, we cannot do anything. Successfully get to work on objects in the Nizhny Novgorod region was possible thanks to the team of the governor and project management. This is an exemplary case when the federal government and the region worked in the same team, ”said Dmitry Kobylkin.

Gleb Nikitin also spoke about the implementation of the federal project "Improvement of the Volga" in the Nizhny Novgorod region. “As part of the implementation of the regional project“ Improvement of the Volga, ”a reduction in the amount of polluted wastewater discharged into the Volga River from 0.35 km³ in 2019 to 0.12 km³ in 2024 is planned. The project provides for the execution of design and construction and installation works for the construction, reconstruction (modernization) of 88 treatment facilities, ”said Gleb Nikitin.
