What were the conditions spelled out in the Memorandum, and who was the initiator of signing?
The us proposed very favorable conditions for us. In a nutshell, the conditions are as follows: you plant, and you give us trash. The Americans are willing to recycle our garbage, the city’s task is to collect. The important point for us was that the plant not be an additional burden for the city budget. All costs for the processing of waste Americans take. They made the initiators of the Memorandum.
How much will cost the construction of the plant?
The cost of the plant estimated at $20 million If all goes well, he should start working in 2020. Much will depend on the political situation in the country. Investors are primarily interested in a stable political situation. So much money goes to the Western Ukraine because it is farther from the combat zone. In the center of the country investors are still not in a hurry.
What will be the capacity of the new plant?
The plant has a capacity of 100 thousand tons per year. The Boryspil will load only 1/3 of the capacity. However, it we expect that this will take the garbage from neighboring areas — baryshevsky and Berezansky, as well as from the city of Kiev.
But in Kiev, already operates a waste recycling plant “Energy” and it is not fully loaded.
Yes. This is due to the fact that the processing of 1 cubic meter of garbage there is 80 UAH, and the burial — 20 UAH. So while there are tariffs for disposal, companies will take the garbage to the dumps. But it is now clear that they are already overwhelmed and completely exhausted their resource.
After opening the dump in the city of Boryspil airport will be closed?
Yes, the garbage that is there now will also partially redesigned at the factory. Gasification technology allows it.
And what is the essence of this technology?
Solid waste is incinerated at a temperature of 800-1200 degrees, then the energy is converted into electricity that will be sold to the grid at the green tariff, as the energy from the sun and wind (in the EU oppose the introduction of green tariff for electricity derived from the burning of household waste — Ed.).
In addition, this technology also recycles construction debris — doors, Windows, glass, old cars.
