The authorities of the Irkutsk region intend to change Rosgeology to another contractor to eliminate the waste of the Baikal Pulp and Paper Mill (BPPM). There are many complaints about the federal structure.

The Governor of the Irkutsk Region Sergey Levchenko told about the possible change of the contractor at the meeting of the regional Legislative Assembly. According to TASSThe BPPM, which closed in the autumn of 2013, accumulated almost 50 million tons of solid and liquid waste, including toxic waste, over the 6,5 years of operation. Rosgeology should have disposed of them under the contract concluded in 2017, but it did not fulfill its obligations.

According to the press service of the regional government, the regional authorities sent three complaint letters to Rosgeology JSC. The first in October, 2018, was written because the structure did not provide a feasibility study and technology for waste disposal for approval by the customer.

Under the contract, the works need to be completed before 30 in October of 2018, however, the deadline had to be extended to 30 in June of 2019. Since the situation has not changed at all, in March of this year a new complaint appeared, and in June - the third one. In response, Rosgeologiya proposes to correct the documentation, however, regional authorities fear that this will lead to an increase in the period of execution of the contract from 2021 to the end of 2023.
