Construction stone remnants can be used as backfill for roads and fill in shell holes with them

In Ukraine, the waste of war, which became the destroyed houses, can be processed and returned to civilian circulation as secondary raw materials.

Experts have proposed 8 ways that will help eliminate waste from the destruction of infrastructure, it is reported Rubryka.

Even before full-scale war, construction waste made up the bulk of waste in landfills. Currently, the share of such waste is increasing significantly due to the destruction of infrastructure by missiles and artillery fire by the Russians.

Kyrylo Kosourov, the chairman of the board of the Association of enterprises in the field of hazardous waste management, a member of public councils under the Ministry of Environment, the Ministry of Economic Development and the State Regulatory Service of Ukraine named the following methods:

  • Monk, as the crushed metal is called, can be returned to circulation after remelting;
  • Construction stone remnants can be used for the production of various types of construction products, in particular as a backfill for roads, and they can also be used to fill up holes from projectile ruptures;
  • Surviving building ruins can be used as building materials;
  • Fallen trees can be recycled into rubble;
  • Crushed stone obtained from recycled concrete is used to fill swamps and pits, as well as to create temporary roads;
  • Asphalt is reused in road construction, but first it is thermally treated at a very high temperature;
  • Fittings are also reused in construction and other industries;
  • Also, such waste can be used in building structures to create low-grade concrete.

Such concrete can be produced by Ukrainian factories and European partners. The Institute of "NDIBK" is the representative of Ukraine in the International Federation of Concrete, and the employees of the institution have already placed a corresponding request for the opportunity to use the experience of European countries in the use of concrete from construction waste.

Earlier, EcoPolitic wrote, that the Head of the Ministry of Environment, Ruslan Strilets, said that Lithuania will help Ukraine in reconstruction of buildings destroyed by the war and other destruction waste.

As EcoPolitic reported before, although final volumes of waste from destruction are currently unknown in Ukraine, experts emphasize that they are colossal.
