Negotiations are underway with international investors to involve them in the implementation of the project

KSG Agro Holding has announced the creation of a project for a new plant for processing destruction waste. It will specialize in sorting, processing, and utilizing the consequences of destruction in the Kherson region.

This was reported by the company's press service.

"Such a plant is very much needed in the region to free the Kherson region from the waste that resulted from the destruction caused by enemy air attacks," says Sergiy Kasyanov, Chairman of the Board of Directors of KSG Agro.

The planned implementation period is 2.5 years, and the total budget is $8 million. Of this amount, 1.8 million will be spent on the construction of a workshop with a technological line for preparing waste for recycling. Another 5.5 million will be spent on a workshop for the production of finished products (gray and colored paving slabs, pressed blocks).

The first stage of the project involves the construction of a sorting line, as various materials such as bricks, concrete, metal, etc. will be processed. The final product will be crushed stone, which can be used in construction.

"At the second stage, we will receive pressed blocks using the pressing method, for example, such as aerated concrete frames for construction or tiles that can be used during the reconstruction of destroyed objects," explained Kasyanov.

As EcoPolitic previously reported, Ukraine has already generated more than 600 thousand tons of demolition waste, i.e. the debris of buildings and other objects destroyed by shelling.
