In Yakutia, solid domestic waste will be recycled into heat and electricity

Garbage for the benefit of

A technopark for the thermal processing of solid waste will be built in Yakutsk. The project, which will be implemented by the city authorities and RT-Invest, involves the construction of a thermal waste treatment plant and the organization of the corresponding infrastructure.

The mayor of Yakutsk, Aisen Nikolaev, signed a framework agreement with RT-Invest (formed in 2012 with the participation of the State Corporation Rostec) on the creation of a concession for the construction of an industrial heat treatment park in the capital of the country. The agreement provides for the construction of a specialized modern technology park, which sets a new technological and environmental standard for the treatment and disposal of solid waste.

First Deputy Permanent Representative of the Republic Yuri Zabolev and other heads of the Yakutia representative office took part in the signing ceremony of the Agreement. Y. Zabolev, who as mayor of the city was engaged in this issue, noted that for all residents of Yakutsk the construction of the plant will significantly improve the quality and standard of living.

Signatures under the corresponding document were put by three parties - the head of the urban district of Yakutsk Aisen Nikolaev, the general director of LLC RT-Invest Andrey Shipelov and the managing partner of Black Swan Capital Partners Limited Kirill Bychkov, representing the interests of the shareholders of the company YakutskSokoseti.

The Mayor of Yakutsk noted that the signing of the agreement is a historic moment, preceded by two-year work. “The problem of waste disposal for Yakutsk is extremely acute and serious, not only due to the fact that our population is growing, but also due to the fact that the city itself is in extreme climatic conditions. Of course, given the harm the problem of household waste causes both the ecology of the city and the health of people, this issue must be resolved. I am grateful to our partners who have been promoting this project for the past two years. There were a number of meetings with various investors, including international ones. And I am very glad that today we are signing an agreement with our Russian company, which uses the latest technologies and surpasses foreign enterprises in its capabilities, the State Corporation Rostec, "Nikolayev noted.

The main objective of the project is to create a sustainable and environmentally friendly waste management system that involves the fullest possible recycling of waste to heat, electricity, compost and recycled materials.

The general director of RT-Invest A.Shipelov noted that the company is proud of the fact that Yakutsk is one of the first regions that it chooses as a platform for the implementation of such a complex environmental project that has great socio-economic importance for the entity. The organization mainly invests in fast-growing companies in the sectors of advanced industrial technologies, waste management, information systems and transport telematics, and the production of building materials.

"Yakutsk is indeed a particularly sensitive ecological zone, so all our efforts should be directed towards saving the city from household waste in the most environmentally friendly way, minimizing all negative consequences. We are already working in Kazan, Nizhny Novgorod, Volgograd to collect, transport and waste sorting, and in Yakutsk, together with our partners, we are ready to implement one of our strategic projects - thermal waste processing to generate electricity and heat, ”he said.

A.Shipelov especially stressed that "good legislation was developed in the republic, which allows investors to work very actively".

Creating a technology park involves launching a sorting line to extract useful fractions from waste and their further processing into recyclables, as well as building a thermal processing plant that produces electricity and heat energy connected to a local heat and power line. In addition, a new landfill will be built for the safe disposal of solid waste.

When the project is implemented (next year it is planned to start active construction), the city will receive the most modern complex for processing solid waste. This will minimize environmental damage and get a useful product - heat instead of waste.

"The task is complex, but realizable," A.Nikolaev summed up.

Within the framework of the agreement, the terms of the RT-Invest deal on acquiring the share of the company YakutskSeketi were also registered, together with which it is planned to develop further cooperation in this direction.
