A Christof Industries delegation visited the Republic of Dagestan in the south-west of Russia at the start of December as part of the preparations for the joint development of a technology park. Discussions with high-level political and business representatives focussed on progress to date and the next steps in the planning of this large-scale project. Regional authorities will be making massive investments in waste recovery in the coming years. Each of Dagestan’s five sub-regions will establish an industry park, at the centre of which there will be a waste reprocessing plant. Waste from the whole region will be sorted, recycled and recovered at the reprocessing plant.
RDF (refuse derived fuel) will be converted to steam, heat and electricity in a waste incineration plant. In this way, the companies that set up operations in each park should be able to draw all of their power from alternative energy.
The Republic of Dagestan has chosen Christof Industries as its partner for the development of these industry parks because of our extensive experience in the waste-to-energy sector and our in-house technology provider Oschatz. This project is being financed and supported by a fund that Vladimir Putin set up under a national program for environmental protection.
