About approval of the Technical regulation "Requirements to Issues to the Environment by Aluminium Production by Electrolysis Method"

According to the Ecological code of the Republic of Kazakhstan of January 9, 2007 and the Law of the Republic of Kazakhstan of November 9, 2004 "About technical regulation" the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan DECIDES:

1. Approve the enclosed Technical regulation "Requirements to Issues to the Environment by Aluminium Production by Electrolysis Method".

2. This resolution becomes effective after twelve months after the first official publication.


Prime Minister

Republic of Kazakhstan K. Masimov

Approved by the order of the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan of September 10, 2010, No. 925

Technical regulation "Requirements to Issues to the Environment by Aluminium Production by Electrolysis Method"

1. Scope

1. This Technical regulation "Requirements to Issues to the Environment by Aluminium Production by Electrolysis Method" (further - the Technical regulation) establishes technical specific standard rates of issues to the environment for the processes applied by electrolysis aluminum production from the melted alumina (further - processes), irrespective of type of the used raw materials (enriched, nonenriched), taking into account the best available technologies (further - NDT) which list is provided in tables 1-2 of appendix 1 to this Technical regulation.

2. In aluminum production processes by method of electrolysis issues from processes of raw material feed and materials, electrolytic obtaining, flood and warehousing of commodity aluminum, agglomeration of electrodes, anode effects, cleanings of the furnaces and their preparation for warming up or long idle time performed in the main divisions belong to dangerous factors (risks): workshop of electrolysis (далееЦЭ), foundry department (FD) and workshop of production of electrodes (далееЦПЭ).

2. Terms and determinations

3. In this Technical regulation the following terms and determinations are used:

1) electrolytic receipt of aluminum - process of electrochemical decomposition of kriolitoglinozemny fusion (under the influence of electric current, at temperature about 950 °C) with the category of cations of aluminum on the cathode (liquid aluminum) and recovery of metal aluminum, and oxygen ions - on the carbonaceous anode with formation of the mix CO2 and CO;

2) anode effect - sharp increase in tension on the electrolyzer owing to decrease in content of aluminum oxide (Al2O 3) in the melted electrolyte and increases in resistance on border "the anode - electrolyte", leading to big allocation of heat and temperature increase of electrolyte, decrease in exit on current, increase in expense of the electric power and fluoric salts;

3) aeration lamp - the glazed superstructures over openings in coverings intended for ensuring all-exchange ventilation and lighting with natural light of factory buildings of the metallurgical and chemical industry more than 18 m wide, with allocations of heat, dust, smoke and gases;

4) aluminum - the metal aluminum of technical quality (aluminum raw, primary aluminum) emitted on the cathode as a result of electrolysis process and extracted from the electrolyzer;

5) the best available technologies (BAT) - the used and planned industry technologies, the machinery and equipment providing the organizational and managerial measures directed to decrease in level of negative impact of economic activity on the environment to providing target indicators of quality of the environment;

6) the service equipment - the devices, aggregates used for collection, storage, transportation, materials, preparation of fuel, pyleulavlivaniye, gas purification installation; automatic equipment, blocking, devices and control units and protection, chimneys;

7) kriolitoglinozemny fusion - aluminum oxide (Al2O 3) dissolved in mix of the melted cryolite (Na3AlF 6) and aluminum fluoride (AlF 3);

8) agglomeration furnaces (the tubular rotating furnaces, furnaces of the boiling layer) - the metallurgical aggregate for roasting of materials due to heat energy from combustion of fuel;

9) the burned anodes - cores of the big sizes from the carbonaceous raw materials which are previously burned at temperature about 1100 °C (mix of coke and peak binding) on which electric current moves to electrolysis bathtubs with alumina; not burned anodes are called "green";

10) the capital equipment - electrolyzers, electric furnaces of resistance (mixers), foundry machines conveyor-based, installations for production of "green" anodes, furnaces for roasting of anodes;
