In Vinnytsia, the court ordered an enterprise specializing in the storage of agricultural products to pay over 815,000 hryvnias for air pollution in the Tulchyn district.
In 2021, the company used grain drying equipment without a permit to emit pollutants into the air, reports the State Environmental Inspection in the Vinnytsia region.
It is noted that during the operation of the equipment, the following were released into the air:
