The combine, built in 1937 during Stalin's reign, emits five times more sulphur dioxide -- the cause of acid rain -- than the whole of Norway just seven kilometres away on the Russian border.<br />
In 2001, Norway gave Norilsk Nickel, the head company, 32 million euros to modernise the facility and cut pollution. The money disappeared, but the factory was not improved.<br />
Sulphur dioxide emitted from the factory kills vegetation, pollutes ground water and causes asthma, especially among children.
