RIA Novosti informs about this with reference to the press service of the department.

“When the mechanism is fully operational, metals, pipes, fertilizers, cement, and electricity can be imported into the EU only on condition that each ton of CO2 emissions generated during their production is paid for,” the press service said.

The report also says that, as expected, "the price of a ton of CO2 will be equal to the average price determined at auctions under the EU emissions trading system."

It is noted that on July 14, the European Commission published a draft transboundary carbon regulation.

The document has been under development for over a year.

According to the Ministry of Economic Development, this mechanism will affect supplies from Russia of iron and steel, aluminum, pipes, electricity and cement for $ 7.6 billion per year.
