News agency TASS informs (in Russian) that experts from the Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Welfare (Rospotrebnadzor) announced the regions with the most polluted air in Russia. The leaders of this anti-rating are Buryatia, Khabarovsk Krai, Irkutsk Region, Krasnoyarsk Krai, Kursk Region and Crimea (in Russian). Such information is presented in the report of supervisory authorities following the results of 2017. The main causes of pollution are the use of coal and transport stresses.
The expert on environmental issues, President of the Crimean Academy of Sciences, Head of the NGO “Ecology and Peace” Victor Tarasenko said in a conversation with a TASS correspondent that the problem with air pollution in the peninsula is associated mostly with an increasing transport load:
“The number of vehicles has increased in Crimea in recent years, the flow of tourists is growing, which will continue to increase, as well as the bus fleet that transport passengers. How can we deal with this? It seems to me that it is necessary to introduce environmentally friendly modes of transport, especially in resort areas; this will reduce air pollution.”
He also pointed out that the Crimean authorities had already been offered to launch a pilot project for the construction of string transport using SkyWay technology:
“In fact, this is a monorail, which is fixed at a certain height on special overpasses with trains called the unicar running along them. They operate with electricity, their passenger capacity is up to 18 people, they develop speed of up to 100 km/h at a distance of 300 km,” said Tarasenko.
It should be noted that despite the difficulties in Crimea related to the resistance of local businesses to the introduction of local transport, this technology has good prospects in the region. It is not reasonable to put at stake the tourist prospects in Crimea because of pollution problems, as the local nature is the most important wealth of the peninsula’s residents. The political situation is not important for SkyWay, the main thing for it is the environment.
