Ulaanbaatar, May 29, 2024 /MONTSAME/. A Construction and Demolition Waste Recycling Plant and waste landfill, under construction at Moringiin Davaa Dump Site in Khan-Uul district, Ulaanbaatar, is to be commissioned in the third quarter of 2024.

Ulaanbaatar produces around 1.4 million tons of waste a year, of which 20-30 percent is construction waste. The new landfill facility will have a capacity of 5.5-8.5 million tons of solid waste while the Solid Construction Waste Recycling Plant can recycle 175 thousand tons of solid construction waste annually.  

The Project, which is being implemented to improve the waste management and recycling practices of Ulaanbaatar city, is funded with a soft loan from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and a grant from the European Union. Besides the new landfill facility that meets hygiene requirements, the Plant will have an area for sorting and crushing of solid construction waste, a garage for machinery, and an office building.


Director of the Environmental Pollution and Waste Management Department of the Office of the Mayor of Ulaanbaatar, B. Munkh-Erdene visited the construction site and noted, “ Producing gravel and other useful products by recycling solid construction waste has a great significance. Furthermore, the commissioning of the Plant will reduce the number of dumpsites and CO2 emissions, conserve water and energy, and create stable jobs. Also, waste-to-power plants are planned to be built in Narangiin Enger and Tsagaan Davaa dumpsites.”


The Landfill and Construction and Demolition Waste Recycling Plant has procured 29 types of machinery and equipment so far.
