The preliminary study of the selected environmental effects around the paper industry
AbstractThis study focused on the evaluation of impacts of the cellulose and paper production in the company Mondi SCP on the deposition and distribution of inorganic pollutants (especially metals) in snowfall within the city and vicinity of Ružomberok given that the pulp and paper industry is responsible for releasing of different organic (solvents, alcohols, or chelating agents) or inorganic compounds (NO2, SO2, CO2, chlorites, or metals) into water sources or air. Considering the fact that snow is an active media that transfers particulates and gases between the atmosphere and the landscape, snow can represent a suitable indicator of different particles and compounds deposition and accumulation over winter and spring. Snow chemistry therefore reflects changes in the chemistry of the atmosphere.
