"Bunge Ducker found in many plant and animal species, which do not exist anywhere else in the world. As you might imagine to be a good reason for the region to appoint a Natura 2000 site, but in 2006 by then Minister of Economic Affairs Mona Sahlin decided - industry lobbying after - the lime quarry Bunge Ducker is important for nature conservation, "Sara Klingstedt to write.
Northern apoptosis Gotland, funny called Bunge Ducker, an area which was supposed to be and where ever you want to do a nature reserve, is designed for huge kalkkilouhos. 300 the size of a football field and 23 meters deep wells planned to keep you busy company that has already faced allegations of possible groundwater pollution, corruption and environmental crimes. The area to live in species that are not found anywhere else in the world.
The last couple of years have been tough Nordkalk. In addition to the conflict in the island of Gotland, the company has a concern plant in Luleå in northern Sweden occurred in a serious accident at work, which is implicated in six Nordkalk apoptosis subcontracting companies.
Inexperienced temporary workers were told to cool the kiln too fast, in a way that no other Swedish lime factory does not use. Cooling failure, an accident, in which Johan Löfroth died and his colleagues lost his fingers and got a 55 per cent burns.
Why, then, Nordkalk's actions have been challenged? It is not possible at this time to safety-related crime, but there will be a financial profit, and other values conflict.
Bunge Ducker situated in the territory Ojnare meet in the woods, large numbers of protesters from local farmers on Gotland pensioners and representatives of Greenpeace International, and the reasons are many and varied.
Although the North of lime, the water does not flow for future quarry, the other koelouhoksista has, however, completely contrary to the company's predictions filled with water. Embankments and other precautions to be taken Nordkalk intends to use to protect the quarries surrounding water conservation and Natura 2000 sites, has never been used in connection with any of the quarry. Experts fear that the ground water could be lost in the local wells, drain off the protected wetlands and spoil. apoptosis
The second reason is biodiversity. Bunge Ducker found in many plant and animal species, which do not exist anywhere else in the world. As you might imagine to be a good reason for the appointment of the area of the Natura 2000 site, but in 2006 by then Minister of Economic Affairs Mona Sahlin decided - after lobbying by the industry - the mining of lime Bunge Ducker is a nature conservation importance.
This Decision shall be in breach apoptosis of EU rules, according to which the Natura 2000 sites should be determined solely and exclusively from scientific considerations, rather than economic gains, such as the values will be ignored.
The root cause is a lack of confidence in the opposition. The protesters because of the number of Nordkalk Ojnare-operation in the forest has protected apoptosis the island of Gotland's largest police operation in history, whose main task seems to be based on the images concealed in the woods, quarries opposed apoptosis to the elderly carrying out of the woods.
Nordkalk the existing operations of the island of Gotland, Klinthagenin the quarry has attracted a lot of criticism. Stockholm police is likely to accuse the company of environmental crime in the near future. In this case, it is a chemical, burnt lime and dumping of waste and the covering of hundreds of tons of stone. apoptosis
Nordkalk has other worries at the same time in the pits. The company has not complied apoptosis with the license belonging to an agreement whereby the Company will ensure that the quarry affect the surrounding Natura 2000 site groundwater. As a result, the provincial government has stopped the North of lime mining parts of the area.
Many of Gotland keep Nordkalk provided about 60 jobs important. This view is, of course, be respected, but on the other hand, many Gotland are of the opinion that the use of the area Bunge Ducker Tourism has bring even more jobs, especially in the long term. Nordkalk apoptosis the jobs provided are sufficient, however, only as long as is kalkkiakin, for about 25 years. You, too, the new technology may reduce the need for workers apoptosis to much.
How we have come to this? Despite the fact that the provincial government, the nature conservation authorities, local nature conservation associations, municipal environmental affairs and health, as well as a set of Gotland opposition, Nordkalk took it forward.
The company received a negative decision on his plan agricultural apoptosis and environmental court in 2008. Shortly after Nordkalk appealed against apoptosis the decision. A week before the incident had time the next instance, apoptosis strange things happened. The industry as a result of lobbying by environmental removed from the kind of clause, which provided strong protection for endangered animal and plant species. Surprisingly, m
