The international company Miyamoto International will help build a modern waste management system in Kyiv region, in particular, a waste processing complex.
The company will also help organize the processing of destruction waste, i.e. buildings destroyed by the occupiers, the head of the Kyiv Regional State Administration, Ruslan Kravchenko, reported on Facebook.
He said this after a meeting with Dr. Hideki "Kit" Miyamoto, CEO of Miyamoto International.
Kravchenko explained that the company has expertise in humanitarian recovery after natural disasters, military conflicts and disasters, and also has official representative offices in 27 countries around the world. The company's partners are the World Bank, USAID and most UN agencies.
"Kyiv region is really interested in the proper organization of the algorithm for identification, collection and disposal of demolition waste. This is an important stage of recovery, which is now actively taking place in the region," he said.
Kravchenko emphasized that a huge amount of such waste is generated during the dismantling of buildings destroyed by the occupiers. Therefore, their processing according to modern global technologies and the possibility of reuse are necessary in order to:
- preserve natural resources;
- reduce environmental pollution;
- to develop the economy of the region.
He added that the meeting also discussed Miyamoto International's proposal to build a waste processing plant. The company is already implementing this project with funds from international donors.
Kravchenko noted that this is another step on the way to the systematic and comprehensive restoration of Kyiv region.
Earlier, EcoPolitic wrote, that two modern waste processing plants will be built in Kyiv Region for a cluster solution to the waste problems of three communities for $117 million.
As EcoPolitic previously reported, the Cabinet of Ministers in September 2022 approved the "Procedure for handling waste from the destruction of buildings and structures" resulting from hostilities, acts of terrorism, sabotage or liquidation of their consequences.
