Taganrog Boiler-Making Works Krasny Kotelshchik (TKZ), forming part of Power machines, was awarded a letter of gratitude for its contribution to preservation of the environment and forests in Russia. The company took part in the All-Russian eco-marathon "Recycling".
The environmental campaign was made to attract people’s attention to resource conservation and waste recycling development. Its motto is “Let’s collect wastepaper - save the tree!” Initiators calculated that 100 kg of wastepaper saves 1 tree from being cutt-down, saves 2,000 liters of clean drinking water from pollution, saves 100 kW of electricity and prevents 170 kg of carbon dioxide from being emitted into the atmosphere.
The eco-marathon is based on a competitive principle. Throughout the year, municipal entities, and then the regions, pass round the wastepaper collection baton. The best results are recorded in the "green" rating of Russia. To date, the environmental campaign includes over 40 regional participants, including the Rostov region.
Krasny Kotelshchik participated in the eco-marathon "Recycling" for the second consecutive year. The company collected more than 3,500 kg of wastepaper, which is almost 2.5 times more than in 2018. TKZ contribution to environmental conservation is marked by the letter of gratitude. The corresponding document was signed by Sergei Skorobogatov, the Head of the Federal Environmental Paper-Recycling Project “SDAY-BUMAGU.RF”.
