The problem of household and industrial waste recycling is acute, but it seems that plasma technology can be the right panacea to all the problems in the nearest future. Simdean, the innovator of industrial waste disposal, plasma waste disposal and a well-established industry researcher, continues to acquaint you with the news, advances and major events of plasma waste technology. Today’s article focuses on one of the most prospective regions as for plasma technology usage – Russia.
The state of affairs
Russia annually produces about 3.8 billion tonnes of waste. On average, 10% – 15% of garbage is recycled. Municipal solid waste is processed by only 3% – 4%, industrial – by 35%. Basically garbage dumped in landfills – there are over 11,000 of such areas in the country. They store about 82 billion tons of waste. That’s a significant figure.
Currently, this technology is being promoted and developed by a team of associates of specialized research Institute of Instrumentation (SNIIP) under the direction of Valery Gnedenko. Apart from doctors recognized by the Russian community the team includes experts from a number of international scientific organizations. Their main is to promote technologies for plasma processing waste using domestic equipment both inside Russia and around the world, including Europe, the USA and Japan. The results are impressive so far, 11 new facilities were launched since 2014, altogether allowing to process 10 million tons of waste monthly.
