New environmental permit does not stop pollution of the Great Belt


Sthe waste water from the company RGS Nordic must be diluted around 200 times if it is to be able to comply with environmental requirements for a large number of heavy metals and certain other substances, among them the problematic PFAS compounds. The requirements are set as micrograms per liter. This can be done by laying out a mixing zone in the Storebælt of 350 meters around the company’s outlet, which is 600-700 meters from the coast.

This is the proposal in a draft for a new environmental approval for the company, whose existing environmental approval dates from 2008. RGS Nordic is located in Stigsnæs by Skælskør and cleans waste water from industrial and offshore companies from several countries. There have been local protests against the company’s emissions for several years.
