When pulp-and-paper plant on Baikal finally stops polluting it?
Baikal with iced surface

Igor Shuvalov, first vicechairman of Russian government arrived to Baikalsk concerning to conversion of Baikal pulp-and-paper plant to closed-loop water recycling in 2011 could not say anything definite. This means the only one thing: pulp-and-paper plant will keep polluting unique lake.
      Shuvalov has got acquainted with different projects of creating a very Special Economic Zone of Tourism and Recreation, which is supposed to appear some time in Baikalsk. And came to no decision. The problem was that each of them needs substantial investment. Nobody will invest money into those beautiful projects until Baikal pulp-and-paper plant stops functioning. Pulp and paper production. as it is well-known, distinguished with awfull smell and toxic emissions.
      Does it mean that Baikal pulp-and paper is going to stop functioning? No, because it cannot stop until everybody working there is provided with new jobs. There are no work places in the area of tourism and recreation while pulp-and-paper plant is functioning. A vicious circle, instead of certain decision.
      You can see Baikal Lake having bought a Baikal tour, or during Trans-Siberian Railroad trip, the tickets for which can be booked on our site. For details, click here.
