From 1895 until 2005, the Rio de Janeiro Gasometer area, where Flamengo wants its football stadium to be built, functioned as a gas storage and distribution center. Because of this, the soil on the land was contaminated, especially in cases of pipe leaks during the period of most intense activity. The document released by Rio City Hall this Tuesday (07/09) shows that the degree and type of contamination at the site are still unknown.

At the beginning of it all, in 1895, gas was produced from the burning of mineral coal. In 1911, being considered the largest in the world in this type of production, the Rio Gasometer operated to supply 180 thousand cubic meters of gas per day.


Some academic works observed this issue of soil contamination in the region of Gasometer. Among them is that of Mariana Velasco Gomes de Almeida, who wrote her master's thesis “Contamination of port areas — a case study in the port of Rio de Janeiro”, in the Postgraduate Program in Urban and Environmental Engineering at PUC-Rio . In the text, presented in 2015, Mariana highlighted that the first geoenvironmental studies were carried out in the area in 1997.


Five years later, in 2002, new studies were carried out that detected chemicals such as benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene in the field and xylenes; Hydrocarbons; lead, copper, nickel, arsenic, mercury and cyanide. All above the acceptable quantity.

“It is not known for sure how this waste was disposed of on the land, that is, if it was placed in a specific place or if it was just left in direct contact with the soil at the site. “, emphasizes Mariana Velasco in her research.


In 2011, the State Environmental Institute (Inea) diagnosed the space as a Contaminated Area under Investigation (ACI). The following year, the land passed to the Porto Region Urban Development Company (CDURP). Subsequently, in 2013, another decontamination plan was presented. But it was not implemented. In Inea's processes, it does not appear that the area is suitable for changing land use and occupation.

Without De La Cruz and Varela suspended, Uruguay, eliminated by Colombia, faced Canada in the third place match and drew 2-2. On penalties, deu Celeste, 4 to 3. Viña, investigated by Conmebol for incidents in the stands after the defeat to the Colombians, was again in the starting lineup. Arrascaeta entered the second half in place of Ugarte.

The match was electrifying in the USA. After just six minutes, Bentancur opened the scoring for Uruguay. However, still in the initial stage, Koné equalized and David turned to Canada. However, at the end of the match, 46 minutes into the second half, Luis Suárez left everything the same: 2 to 2.


Overall in the competition, Nicolás de la Cruz played five matches. In other words, he just didn't duel against Canada for the second yellow card. The midfielder was one of Celeste Olímpica's best players in the tournament and provided two assists in the Copa América. Varela remained on the bench throughout the group stage, but came on in the second half against Brazil and Colombia. Against the Colombians, he was sent off.


Uruguayan number 10, Arrascaeta provided an assist in the competition, scored in penalty shootouts against Brazil and Canada and also entered the field against Bolivia, Panama and Colombia. A starter like De La Cruz, left-back Matías Viña played every game and scored a goal and provided an assist.

Flamengo's presidential election will take place in December, but behind the scenes at the club are already busy. The leadership of Rodolfo Landim's management lost members who will support other groups in the election and new goodbyes could come soon. The current president's group, on the other hand, still estimates it has strength.

Landim announced support for Rodrigo Dunshee in the election. Dunshee is the club's Deputy General and Legal Officer, and accompanied the current president for both terms. The board has seen five vice presidents leave their positions in recent weeks. The farewells were to join Luiz Eduardo Baptista's group, Bap, or Maurício Gomes de Mattos.


There were three farewells to support Bap. Rodrigo Tostes, from Finance, and Marcelo Conti, deputy from the Presidency's Office, left last week, while Paulo Cesar Pereira, deputy from Secretariat, spoke with Landim last Friday night (12). The president indicated that he will take on the role of Finance Vice and nominated Diogo Lemes for the vacancy left by Conti.


The other two departures were for the group of Maurício Gomes de Mattos

One of them was Maurício himself, who was deputy of Embassies and Consulates, and left the board to launch his own candidacy. Adalberto Ribeiro, then vice-president of External Relations, left his position to support Maurício.


The departures did not take the board by surprise, according to people interviewed by UOL. The moves were already expected and other goodbyes are expected. It is understood that there was a union of different aspects around Landim's candidacy, but this alliance no longer appears necessary in the current situation.

The scenario points to the first major rupture since Landim took office , in January 2019. In the corridors, however, there is a positive evaluation. The reading is that, even with exits and formations of alliances that will become rivals in the election, the majority of political groups still support Dunshee — this design brings confidence to the group in the situation in another election. Landim could become a candidate for president of the Deliberative.

The groups that were already opposing the administration are still debating the options

There is a view that many movements could happen behind the scenes, and the scenario is studied before deciding which direction to take. They evaluate their own candidacy or support for a ticket, and calculate that they can take around 500 votes with them.

Ticket registration will take place between September 10th and 30th. The election will take place in the first ten days of December. The identification of plates will no longer be by color, but by number.

CHECK OUT SOME BENEFITS THAT THE FLAMENGO STADIUM FOR THE CITY OF RIO DE JANEIRO

Legal and urban issues in the construction of the new Mais Querido stadium

In Carlos Vainer's text published on Juca Kfouri's Blog, the author discusses the legal and urban issues involved in the construction of Flamengo's new stadium. Vainer refers to the questions raised by Sônia Rabello, a jurist, in Diário do Rio. At the beginning of the text, Rabello is unable to clarify precisely who owns the land. It is not the Caixa Econômica Federal (CEF), but rather a Real Estate Investment Fund, supervised by the Securities and Exchange Commission (CVM), whose shareholder is the FGTS, managed by the CEF.

It is surprising that the ownership of the land is not explained at the beginning of the text. The obligations of an Investment Fund, created to operate in a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) in an urban operating area, are important information to conceptually discuss the topic in question. The lack of this clarity compromises the discussion about the legitimacy and procedures involved in the construction of the stadium.



Rabello mentions the Constitution, citing Decree-Law 3365, which defines public utility for various works, including the creation of stadiums. According to the Constitution, stadiums can be considered to be of public utility, especially when included in urbanization plans aiming for better economic use. This point strengthens the argument in favor of building the stadium, even if there are controversies regarding the ownership of the land and the role of the Investment Fund.



The text also discusses the number of stadiums in Rio de Janeiro. Currently, the city has three stadiums, and with Flamengo's new stadium, there would be four. In comparison, São Paulo has its own stadiums for each Serie A club, in addition to other relevant stadiums in the metropolitan region. This analysis suggests that the addition of a new stadium in Rio de Janeiro could be beneficial, considering demand and the need for better conditions for games.


A comparison International highlights the situation in Buenos Aires, which has 24 stadiums within Greater Buenos Aires, a region comparable in size to Rio de Janeiro. London also serves as an example, with 11 major clubs and stadiums for other sports such as rugby. These cities demonstrate that a greater number of stadiums can be viable and beneficial, as long as they are well planned and distributed.


The discussion about the location of the new stadium is crucial. The proximity between Maracanã and Flamengo's future stadium is seen by some as problematic. However, real estate expansion in Rio de Janeiro is limited, and the availability of public transport is a determining factor. Locating the stadium in central areas with good access to transport can democratize fan access and facilitate logistics on game days.


Finally, Vainer mentions activation of the stadium on days without games, an important point for the sustainability of the project. The new stadium area was unoccupied for 20 years, contaminated and abandoned. The lack of interest from the local real estate market reinforces the need for a project that brings revitalization and continuous use to the space. These urban and planning issues need to be deeply analyzed to ensure the success and acceptance of Flamengo's new stadium.
