According to Vladimir Yakushev, Russian and foreign investors form proposals that can be fully realized and will benefit the Tyumen region.
“For example, Fortum company is active, they have a proposal. The company’s waste-processing factories operate in Sweden and Finland and we got acquainted with their technology. At least two more Russian investors are ready to enter the market. In general, business is quite positive about this topic, is ready to invest, it looks economically justified” – the head of the region noted.
Sergei Ivanov stressed that waste treatment is a profitable business all over the world. “Unfortunately, in our country this sphere for a long time was criminalized. Today it becomes transparent. It is very important that the receipts include the cost of waste treatment, people will clearly see how much this service costs while it is necessary to control that drivers take out garbage for processing, not to the nearest forest” – the Presidential Representative said.
We add that in 2014 the Government of the Tyumen region concluded a concession agreement on the creation and operation of a communal infrastructure system for the processing, utilization and disposal of solid domestic waste.
In accordance with this agreement, the concessionaire undertakes by 2018 to build four inter-municipal waste-processing plants located in Tyumen, Tobolsk, Ishim and Yalutorovsk, and two transfer stations located in Tyumen and the Tyumen region.
To implement the concession agreement, the concessionaire has been allocated six land parcels that meet the terms of the agreement, and landfills in Tyumen, Tobolsk, and Yalutorovsk have been provided for use.
