Abstract

The Russian Federation is on the verge of crucial changes in the system of governmental regulation for the protection of the environment. A new system of setting the norms for an acceptable impact upon the environment that provides for the rejection of individual permissions for each enterprise and the introduction of norms and plans for the gradual reduction of pollution to the levels corresponding to the best available technologies (BAT), the establishment of the advanced industry of waste disposal and the extended application of renewable energy sources are the main directions of this reforming. The objective of this paper is to develop an algorithm for ecological-economical substantiation for the BAT application of enterprises within the power industry. The obtained results have enabled the formulation of recommendations on the assessment of expenditures for the substantiation of appropriateness of a concrete BAT application, whilst taking into account its ecological/economical effectiveness. This will enhance the validity of managerial solutions concerning the adoption of these technologies at power industry enterprises. This will lead not only to the stable decrease of an adverse impact volume but also to the increase of Russian enterprises’ competitive capacity. Keywords: power industry, algorithm, best available technologies, cost, environmental impact alternatives.
