ArcelorMittal Kryvyi Rih intends to reconstruct one of its tailings storage facilities – “United. The fourth card”. Unified Register of Environmental Impact Assessment informs about it.
The planned works on the reconstruction of the “Fourth card” tailings storage facility will be done in order to ensure the storage of waste rock tailings of the iron&steel complex due to the construction of dams.

ArcelorMittal currently operates three tailings repositories, two of which are “Myrolyubivka” and “United. The fourth card”. It is planned to invest about $50 million during 2020-2024.
