Construction waste recycling machine granted to the MUSTSociety
Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ ‘Improving resource-efficiency and cleaner production in the Mongolian construction sector through materials recovery’ project handed over EUR 20 thousand equipment for construction waste recycling to the School of Engineering and Architecture of the Mongolian University of Science and Technology.
The industry expert noted that introducing the smart technology that recycles solid waste, rock, metal and organic materials is essential for maintaining ecological balance.
“Our project is giving importance to the environmental protection, focusing on the construction waste recycling. With the laboratory repair and necessary equipment, it is now possible to recycle environmentally nonharmful construction waste,” said the project manager N.Uuriintsolmon.
The project implemented by Caritas Czech Republic with the support of European Union and czech Development Agency is aimed at encouraging SMEs in construction sector to introduce resource-efficient, sustainable and clean production.
Ulaanbaatar produces 350-400 thousand tons of waste annually, about 100 thousand tons or 12-15 percent of which is construction waste. Renovation of the laboratory and new machinery improves conditions for research and experiments on construction waste, thereby increasing Mongolia's recycling system.
