Project of 1mln euros to train 630 environmental commissioners, 3,610 business operators in pollution control

A number of 630 commissioners with the National Environmental Guard (GNM) and 3,610 business operators will be professionally trained in the field of pollution control through a project worth one million euros plus, launched on Tuesday by the GNM in a specialist conference.
The project “Increasing the National Environmental Guard’s capacity to apply the EU’s strategy and legislation on hazardous waste and chemicals ” has a total value of 1,053,400 euros and it is funded through EEA Grants under the RO04 Programme – Reduction in Hazardous Substances.
The purpose of the project is to enhance the GNM’s capacity of monitoring hazardous waste in the environment by making and using an app to track them. Also, the specific objective is increasing the GNM’s capacity to integrate in terms of communications and IT support with the institutions responsible for controlling, monitoring and eliminating the major effects of pollution on environmental factors.
“Currently, we are in verification Convention for each waste entering the country. This refers only to the recycling waste, not storage waste. Romania does not import waste to store it, and when it does so it is about temporary storage for a short period of time. Let us not forget that hazardous substances led to disasters because no appropriate measures were taken,” said Florin Diaconu, Commissioner General of the National Environmental Guard, according to Agerpres.
The GNM will implement this project for 12 months, in partnership with the Norwegian software company Computas AS.
