Belarus/Russia to build waste recycling facility

Belarus and Russia are to build a facility to process Class 1 industrial waste, including pesticides, reports the newswire, Belarus Telegraph Agency. Talks are under way on the construction site and the list of hazardous chemical substances to be processed there. Another facility to process pesticides will be constructed in the Chechersk district in Gomel Oblast province. A “major” pesticide burial site in Slonim district has almost been eliminated with the removal of 809 tonnes of waste after the World Bank provided Belarus with a $5 million grant to decontaminate the area. Belarus plans to eliminate the burial site completely and is in negotiations with the World Bank for a further $1 million for the purpose. Last year, the EU and the UN FAO agreed to help 12 countries across eastern Europe, the Caucasus and central Asia, including Belarus, to clear up huge stocks of obsolete pesticides (Agrow No 638, p 13). Some €7 million ($9.1 million at the current rate) were earmarked for the work.
