"Alpine" Gomel

All pictures taken from the site gomelnews.onliner.by.
These mountains have become the hallmark of Gomel, they can be seen far away from the road , the mountains towering over the forest.

But this is no ordinary mountain. They are located in the Gomel Chemical Plant. This is a waste. Millions of tons of waste.

People say that this waste is hazardous to health. But the mountains have existed for many years and I know of no cases of mass poisoning.

These mountains are made from phosphogypsum. It does not dry and is always in creamy. Phosphogypsum is very similar to toothpaste in consistency and appearance.

People are used to the mountains, one photographer had a photo shoot in the style of "nude": naked girl lying on the phosphogypsum. It looks very nice, but I would not sleep on this material ) )

If an uninitiated person first sees the mountain of phosphogypsum, it always surprised. They look impressive.

Dispose of waste is very expensive and, therefore, they tower over the forest on protyadenii forty years. I think that the mountains will remain in the future. And my children will be amazed and look at the mountains of Gomel.
