"Norway’s biggest environmental problem is here in the border area. The factory in Nikel cause serious problems across the border,” 
Mayor Rune Rafaelsen, Kirkenes, Norway quoted from this article

Jurek's photo is from 1997. I can only imagine its effects on the health status of the workers. Apparently still no major improvements.
