Ragn-Sells Narva linnavolikogule avalduse algatada detailplaneering põlevkivituha väärindamise tehase rajamiseks aastal 2028 Balti Elektrijaama territooriumile.
At present, energy in Estonia is still mainly produced from oil shale because the alternatives do not yet generate the required volumes. The production of oil shale energy generates up to 1 million tonnes of ash waste every year and by valorising this, we can contribute significantly to the reduction of the environmental footprint of our energy generation as a solution which is necessary today. A cleaner living environment in Ida-Viru County and throughout Estonia.
The oil shale industry has left its mark on the natural environment of Ida-Viru County over the last decades. Ragn-Sells does not promise that the ash hills will disappear overnight, but the solution to be developed by the company would considerably reduce the emergence of ash hills.
Construction manager Kady Pärnaku has joined the project of Ragn-Sells OSA, under whose leadership a demo plant for valorisation of oil shale ash will be built next to Narva.
Alar Saluste, head of Ragn-Sells' oil shale ash valorization project, called on to follow an example of Estonia at the UN climate conference COP27 in Egypt.
The European Regional Development Fund allocated 225,375.50 euros to Ragn-Sells to continue research.
