The planned capacity of the joint plant for Brovary and Boryspil communities will be 110-120 thousand tons of waste per year, in Fastivska community – 35-100 thousand tons per year. New capacities may appear in two years.

The plants will process organic (food waste) with subsequent production of biomethane, as well as deep sorting of waste with the selection of valuable materials – scrap metal, glass and plastic.

This is a kind of map on which more than 200 potential investment cases are identified. Among them are today's cases of Kyiv region. In general, up to 10 new enterprises are planned to be built in the region," Strilets said.
