The Crimean Titanium plant owned by Titanovye Investitsii Ltd., which was blamed for acidic discharges in Armyansk, has resumed its operation, the Russia-controlled authorities in Crimea have said, according to Interfax-Ukraine.
The plant launched its equipment on 20 October.
As reported earlier, in the early hours of 24 August, an unknown substance was released into the air in Armyansk. The local authorities had kept mum on the matter until 4 September when it admitted that sulfuric anhydride concentration in Armyansk and the neighbouring areas exceeded the maximum rate. It could happen as a result of evaporation from an acid accumulator at the Crimean Titanium plant.
Children had to be evacuated from the affected area. On 8-9 September, the plant suspended operation.
