7100 tons of land polluted with persistent organic pollutants in Nubarashen pest burial won’t be transferred to the warehouse near Hrazdan Town, but will be neutralized on the spot. This decision was made at “Elimination of Obsolete Pesticide Stockpiles and addressing POPs Contaminated Sites within a Sound Chemicals Management Framework” Project Management and Information Committee meeting held on 7 November at Nature Protection Ministry.
The project is still in the kick-off stage and the project itself has research component, in the frames of which answers will be given to all questions. The draft project will undergo statutory environmental expertise and public hearings will be held.
