As soon as this year, the construction of a modern waste recycling plant near the Russian city of St. Petersburg, in the village of Levashovo, will be launched.
The investor is the Greek company Helector-Actor, Interfax reports on Tuesday. The construction of a facility worth 306 million euro is scheduled to be completed in three years. The design work is already underway and a land plot of 10 hectares is allocated.
The enterprise will exploit a waste sorting technology that has already been used at a similar plant in Cyprus. Also, the sorted garbage will be heat treated for the purpose of generating electricity. It is worth noting that a factory in the German city of Stavenhagen is operating according to this scheme.
Due to modern technologies, the smell produced by the recycled garbage will not be felt outside the enterprise, which will allow the plant to coexist safely with human settlements nearby.
