1.4 billion UAH invested in waste recycling

1.4 billion UAH invested in waste recycling

The National project "Clean City" for construction of first Ukrainian ecological complexes for municipal solid waste (MSW) processing selected investors for construction of waste treatment plants in Kyiv, Ternopol, Khmelnitsky, Chernovtsy, and Kirovograd, the Information-Analytical Bulletin of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine informs.

The main criteria for review of potential investors’ proposals included the shortest possible schedule for construction and commissioning of waste-treatment complexes, which would ensure the recycling of at least 50% of waste as secondary and energy resources to be reused in manufacturing process.

The total amount of investments in recycling and construction of the first 5 MSW complexes will amount to 1.432 billion UAH. Estimated payback period is 7 years.

The "Clean City" project includes construction of waste-processing complex in Kyiv (300,000 tons MSW annually, investments – about 488 million UAH), Ternopol (100,000 tons MSW annually, over 241 million UAH), Chernovtsy (100,000 tons MSW annually, over 223 million UAH), Khmelnitsky (100,000 tons MSW annually, over 234 million UAH), and Kirovograd (100,000 tons MSW annually, investments – 246 million UAH).

Government analysts say the launch of 5 modern complexes for MSW processing will ensure the return of valuable resource components to Ukrainian industry and economy, contributing to solution of environmental contamination issue. In fact, today in Ukraine, only 4% of the total waste is recycled for reuse. And implementation of "Clean City" program in pilot cities envisions the increase of waste recycling process to European level, i.e., 50% and more.
