Russia to Give Britain Lesson on Environmental Protection

British television company the BBC has begun filming a documentary on Lake Baikal and the influence man exerts on it. A large part of the film will be devoted to the Baikal Cellulose Paper Plant, and scientific, political and economic aspects of ecology will also be dealt with.

According to Continental Management, the company which owns a controlling stake in the Baikal plant, 'filming at the plant concerns the modernisation of the plant's purification equipment and closed-circuit water-supply, which will put an end to the factory's influence on Baikal'. The company's press office added that 'the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development has allocated USD 24.5 million for this particular project'.

The film has been commissioned by the British Open University for teaching students in British higher education institutions, and will also form part of the BBC's world popular science archive.

One of Continental Management's strategic investors is Base Element, whose supervisory board is chaired by Oleg Deripaska. Continental Management controls the so-called Container Holding, which specializes in corrugated containers and various types of cardboard packaging. The concern's main business is the Omsk cardboard factory AVA+2, but it also includes the Siberian, Baikal and Selenginsk Cellulose Plants.
