Ukraine to launch eco-project in Kyiv region to recycle waste from infrastructure destroyed by russia

A pilot project to dispose of and recycle construction waste, large volumes of which can be dangerous for the environment, will be launched on the territory of the Kyiv region liberated from russian troops.

The chair of the Servant of the People party, People's Deputy Olena Shuliak, reported on Telegram.

"More than 2 million tons of construction waste accumulated due to the destruction in the Bucha Territorial Community of Kyiv region only. The size of the damage can be critical for the environment, so it is necessary to solve this problem using the world's advanced technologies. Such technologies are available at the Israeli company GreenMix, which has been focusing its activities in this field since 1989," she said.

The parliamentarian said that thanks to the pilot project in the Kyiv region, it will be possible to attract technologies and equipment to dismantle damaged or destroyed multi-story buildings.

Also, according to her, they will carry out environmental disposal and processing of construction waste "with a high economic and logistical effect."

"Actually, we will be able to produce new construction materials from this raw material that we can use to restore destroyed cities," she added.

At the same time, Shuliak informed that this project could become the basis for changing the philosophy of construction waste processing in Ukraine, which is already beginning to take shape at the pilot project in the de-occupied Kyiv region.

Repair works on 236 social infrastructure objects damaged due to the russian federation's full-scale invasion have been completed in the Kyiv region.
During the inspection of the condition of the buildings in the Kyiv region, the expert commission determined that more than 5,400 objects are subject to dismantling.
