Agromars Complex LLC (Kyiv region) plans to build a flotation sludge recycling plant.
“The second project being considered by Agromars Complex is construction of a flotation sludge recycling plant. Flotation sludge appears after purification of water used in slaughtering houses and extra sludge from biological treatment facilities,” the company said on its website. In particular, Agromars is interested in a project of Dutch Mavitec.
The flotation sludge recycling plant and the chicken manure recycling plant will generate electricity using a gasification method. It would be able to generate 1.1 MWh of heat and organic fertilizers.
“We have a plant producing biological additive from animal byproducts. When we build two more plants, we would complete the chain for treating any waste. This would allow solving all environmental issues as it is done in Europe,” Deputy Technical Director Oleksandr Surmach said.
MS Social Project LLC (Kyiv), part of the ICU Group, will invest in construction of the largest unsegregated solid household waste treatment plant in Zhytomyr using a custom technology, ICU reported on Thursday. “The amount of our investments in the construction of the plant will be from EUR 7 million to EUR 10 million… After the implementation of this project in Zhytomyr we are considering the possibility of building this type of plants in other cities of Ukraine,” the company said in a press release, citing the managing partner of ICU Kostiantyn Stetsenko.
According to the document, Tehnix (Croatia), which is the equipment manufacturer and developer of MBT technology (mechanical, biological and thermal treatment of solid municipal waste) was selected a contractor for the implementation of the project. Tehnix has built and commissioned more than 50 similar plants in the EU countries, in the countries where solid household waste, as well as in Ukraine, is not segregated at home.
ICU said that the design capacity of the plant involves the processing of about 82,000 tonnes of solid waste per year. The preliminary construction period of the facility is one year from the moment of obtaining the required permits. It is planned that the plant will operate in two shifts, and the number of workers will be 150 people.
The depth of treatment using this technology will reach 85-95%, and its result will be the receipt of secondary raw materials, alternative refuse-derived fuel (RDF) for cement plants and compost from the organic fraction of solid waste, ICU said.
According to Stetsenko, this innovative technology has proved its effectiveness in many countries, as well as it does not provide for emissions into the environment. It has its own sewage treatment system. He added that the company is also considering this project not only as a business, but also as an important social project.
