In Belarus, the opportunity to create a new plant for the processing of waste is being investigated in the area of Trostenetsky. The deputy prime minister of Belarus, Anatoly Kalinin, assigned this task during a visit to Trostenetsky where there is currently a complex for crushing reinforced concrete and burning medical waste. He noted that the percentage of secondary material resources which ends up in the ground remains unacceptably high. In Minsk, about 1 million tons of waste is thrown away annually, but the Ekores Municipal Tip has only two sorting lines with a capacity of 30 thousand tons each. The construction of the 400,000-ton waste recycling plant, to be finished in a year, will allow the extraction of secondary material resources to increase by 25%.
New plants for waste processing will be created near Minsk
