PCB-pro­ject com­ple­ted

Good Christ­mas news: The pro­ject to remo­ve local PCB sources from Spits­be­ren is now com­ple­ted with the final deli­very of rele­vant items from the Rus­si­an sett­le­ment Bar­ents­burg to Lon­gye­ar­by­en for dest­ruc­tion in Fin­land.

Over three years, a total of 4.762 items, most­ly older electri­cal com­pon­ents, con­tai­ning the long-lived, dan­ge­rous envi­ron­men­tal toxin PCB, have been remo­ved from sett­le­ments in Spits­ber­gen. 3.750 of the­se come from the Rus­si­an sett­le­ments Bar­ents­burg and Pyra­mi­den.
