EcoEnergy Scandinavia took part in Savik Shuster's TV program ‘Shuster life. Adrenaline’. The topic of the program was ‘Waste Wars: 1:0 in favor of Waste. The representatives from the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources, Ministry of Regional Development, Construction and Housing and Communal Services of Ukraine, National Agency on Energy Efficiency and Energy Saving of Ukraine, representatives of all regions of Ukraine were also invited to the program.
During the program the problems of excessive growth of landfill sites in Ukraine, whose number exceeds 4,500, not counting the unofficial dumps, were discussed.
At the program the problem of overfilled landfills in Malehov village (Lviv region), and of polygons in Donetsk were reviewed. As an alternative to the existing landfills, EcoEnergy Scandinavia had presented its Waste-to-Energy project. The facility will accept waste instead of landfills for processing, solving the problems of overflow and producing electricity and heat.
Mats Lundin, the Director of the EcoEnergy Scandinavia Waste-to-Energy project, answered the questions from Members of Parliament and residents of Proletarskyi District of Donetsk. Mats Lundin said that the proposed technology is new, and meets all the European and Ukrainian standards. He also noted that the company does not intend to rise the tariffs for electricity and heat for the residents. He stressed that the facility will not worsen the current environmental situation of Proletarskyi District and Donetsk city as a whole, but on the contrary, improve it by reducing the amount of waste dumped on the landfills of the city.
