The Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs of Turkmenistan intends to implement a number of projects in the field of recycling of raw materials. This issue, important from the point of view of ecology and rational consumption, was considered at a meeting of the government of Turkmenistan via video link on June 14.
Turkmen businessmen have already set up small production facilities for recycling used plastics, paper, polyethylene, rubber, wood, and the production of products from them. In the future, it is planned to implement projects for the construction of enterprises for sorting and recycling garbage and municipal solid waste near Ashgabat and in the regional centers of the country.
Together this network of enterprises will allow to recycle about 500 thousand tons of garbage a year, which will significantly improve the environment. The implementation of these projects is planned for two years, with the use of private investments and loan funds.
