Arctic Yearbook 2014 541 1 1 For emissions / discharges within acceptable standards and for waste of production and consumption within the limits 0 0 For wastes to be temporary accumulated and actually used (recycled) in own production in accordance with the technological regulations or transferred for use within the prescribed period 5 25 For emissions/discharges of pollutants within the temporarily permissible emissions/discharges for the period of realization of the environment protection plan or the program to improve the eco-efficiency 5 25 For wastes placed above the established limits 25 100 For emissions / discharges of pollutants exceeding temporarily permissible emissions / discharges Table 2: The change of the coefficients to the rates of payment for negative impact on the environment Within the framework of the reform, it is expected to reduce the list of regulated pollutants, and define a list of substances banned for emissions or discharges by March 31, 2016; and at the same time increase the base rates for negative impact on the environment. It is supposed to keep the system of temporary permissible emissions/discharges for a seven-year period provided that the reduction plans of negative impact on the environment or the BAT implementation programs (eco-efficiency programs) will be carried out. In the case of failure to comply with reduction of emissions, discharges within 6 months after the due date specified in the plan or the program, the calculated payment shall be recalculated applying the coefficient 100. So the fees for emissions/discharges of pollutants could increase up to 5 times compared with the present period.1 The Forms and Conditions of State Support for BAT Implementation State support for BAT implementation in the form of tax incentives; benefits in respect of payments for negative impact on the environment; and state capital investments is provided for in the reforms. These incentives will be given to enterprises if they realize such measures as: 1) Implementation of BAT; 2) Design, construction, reconstruction of: • recycling and wastewater free water supply systems; • centralized water disposal systems, sewer systems, local structures and equipment for wastewater treatment, including drainage water, for treatment of liquid waste and sewage sludge; • constructions and installations for the capture and utilization of emitted pollutants, heat treatment and cleaning of gases before their emission in the atmosphere, for the beneficial use of associated petroleum gas; 3) Installation of: • equipment to improve fuel combustion modes; Regulation of Environmental Protection for Environmentally Hazardous Facilities in the Russian Arctic
