Propellant component processing factory has been put into operation in Azerbaijan

The opening ceremony of the factory, which will process mixed acid known also as melange (a component of propellant), took place about a week ago in Alyaty  settlement,  80 km to the south of Baku. Mr Abid Sharifov, the vice-premier of Azerbaijan, participated in the ceremony.

The relocatable factory on  the mixed acid  processing  has remained on   Azerbaijan territory since Soviet times, ITAR-TASS informs. The processing  is carried out within the framework of the conversion  programme in cooperation with NATO experts, Mr Sharifov said. 

For one year, as he added, it is necessary to process 1500 tons of the mixed acid. After finishing work in Alyaty, the factory will be relocated to the city of Mingachevir, which is 240 km to the west of Baku. The total project cost  makes EUR 2 million.

According to the head of the project, Professor of  Brandenburg Technical University Wolfgang Spier, storable life of the product in Azerbaijan has expired, and its further storage is unsafe, because it is extremely harmful in terms of environment and people.

According to military experts, the material will be processed into fertilizers for futher use in agricultural enterprises of the country.
