Introduction

The EnviTox project is aiming at developing feasible recommendations and tools to ensure good quality environment in the area around the Krasny Bor toxic waste landfill. The project will provide up-to-date information on the state of the environment in the area around the Krasny Bor toxic waste landfill and will suggest feasible measures for its improvement. Based on the vulnerability and risk analysis, feasible risk management methods for improving the status of the environment are given. Implementation of these measures will lead to improvement of the environmental status in the region.

The EnviTox project is coordinated by the State Geological Unitary Company «Mineral» (SC Mineral). The partners are the Institute of Limnology, Russian Academy of Sciences (IL RAS), the Precambrian Geology and Geochronology, Russian Academy of Sciences (IPGG RAS), the Geological Survey of Finland (GTK) and the South-Eastern Finland University of Applied Sciences (Xamk). The project is conducted during 1.3.2019-28.2.2022.
