Norwegian ecologists and representatives of oil and gas companies continue discussions concerning decline in hydrocarbons output according to the Paris Agreements.
Thus a difficult ecological dilemma was formed around the decision of Norwegian government with regard to development of a new brass minefield in the north part of the country. The resolution gives Norwegian mining company Nussir an operating license for copper mining in Kvalsund municipality as well as entitles to dump wastes into the Repparfjord. Such an approach met a sharp critic on the part of local population supporting preservation of the ecology and arctic nature.
According to the statement of Norwegian Minister of Trade, Industry and Fisheres Ò.Isaksen the transition to green economy depends on increasing production of new metals which are planned to be used in high technologies. Besides, the company Nussir ASA notes that industrial wastes in processing will be lowered to bottom instead of being mounted and mixed with water. Such procedure will lower the risk of pollution of the water area of Barents sea.( Collapse )
