Tuesday, February 24, 2015
Belarus' first waste oil recycling plant will open in Krupki District, Minsk Oblast in February 2015, according to Deputy Chairperson of the Krupki District Executive Committee Tatiana Brantsevich.
The new plant will be located at the production base of the former military camp with the total area of almost 14 hectares in the village of Krupsky. It is expected that the modern manufacturing compound will process up to 20,000 tons of waste oils per year. The plant will produce base oils of the first and second groups, vacuum gas oil.
The construction of the plant was launched by DVCH-Management Company in 2013. The project is implemented with the help of the Cyprian investment. About $6 million has been invested in the project so far.
The new plant will establish the collection order and rational use of waste oils as well as prevent a negative impact of waste on the environment. The production will be almost waste-free. The new plant will be unmatched in the post-Soviet space.
Another promising project to be implemented in Krupki District is the granulated peat production at Turshovka Company. “The recent monitoring showed that this company is the country's only one meeting all the requirements of the project. It is early to talk about the construction deadlines. Stakeholders are considering all the details for the final decision,” specialists of the district executive committee said.
