Nynas given green light to clean-up two areas at Nynäshamn refinery

Decision in Land and Environment Court today.

The Land and Environment Court in the Nacka District has today decided in two cases that clean-up will take place of contaminants found within Nynas AB's oil refinery in Nynäshamn. The Court considers that it is not environmentally justified to remove oil pollution which is located about 40 meters deep in the sea Mysingen outside the refinery.

“We are pleased to have been given the green light to start the clean-up, something we have awaited for a long time. We now need to read and evaluate the decisions in more detail and also wait for them to become final in three weeks’ time,” says Maria Fröberg, HSE Manager in Nynäshamn.

The decisions in the Land and Environment Court apply to three contaminated areas within Nynas AB’s areas at the Nynäshamn refinery.
