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.
