State owned Chile copper company shut down after decades of pollution

Eight years ago, the Chilean government declared that the three municipalities surrounding the bay — Quintero, Puchuncaví, and Concón, located 160 kilometers northwest of the Chilean capital — were saturated with fine particulate matter, inhalation of which is associated with discomfort and respiratory ailments. During a formal ceremony held on Wednesday in Puchuncaví, images of flames from the smelter’s furnace were shown gradually diminishing until they were fully extinguished, marking the closure of the copper smelter 59 years after its founding. A Codelco refinery will continue to operate at the site.https://www.foxnews.com/world/chile-shuts-down-state-owned-copper-smelter-decades-pollution

            This is a great step that Chile has made towards the closure of the company to safe the planet, the rest of companies that are emitting gases and pollute the environment should follow.

              Well done Chile. The next phase is to support restoration projects to remove the pollution you accumulated.

                  Climate love should go to the government not Codelco, they could have taken the decision to shut down long time ago
