  • Project name: 
    • “Construction of a waste processing plant in Kovel”
  • Branch
    •  Housing and communal services, ecologic
  • Location
    • The selected land plot with a total area of 4.9 ha is located within the city of Kovel in the southwestern part of the reserve lands of the Kovel City Council, intended for industrial and storage facilities according to the city master plan.

  • Detailed description of the project:
    • 1) to carry out processing of unsorted garbage in the amount of not less than 80% of the received;
    • 2) ensure the processing of waste without the use of the incineration process;
    • 3) create new jobs;
    • 4) to produce alternative types of energy from organic waste ("green" energy, biogas);
    • 5) produce high quality fertilizers for agricultural needs;
    • 6) reduce air, air, soil and water pollution
    • Stage 1 − construction of a solid waste processing plant;
    • Stage 2 − creation of a center for processing of construction waste;
    • Stage 3 − organization of processing of wood and waste of plant origin;
    • Stage 4 − reclamation of the existing landfill and gas collection from old landfills;
    • Stage 5 − transformation of the complex into an ecological park recreation area.
    • The basis for the development of the investment proposal is the overload of the existing landfill in the tract Lubliniec 2.5 times. Currently, the procedure for renewal of the permit for the acceptance of solid waste by the landfill (which expired on July 1, 2013) is underway.
