      Review of MSW recycling technologies in Russia and abroad

      All known technologies of waste recycling and processing have been entered the Russian market by 2010. Foreign experience shows that a rational organization of MSW processing offers a chance to use up to 90% of recycled polymers in the construction industry, for example as concrete aggregates. The incineration of 1,000 kg of MSWs yields energy equivalent to that produced by burning 250 kg of fuel oil. The real savings turn out to be even greater, since waste, unlike fuel oil, requires no expenses for its production.

      When developing a thermal recycling technology, it is important to control atmospheric emissions of nitrogen dioxide and furans. Based on profitability and environmental friendliness, the following municipal solid wastes storage and recycling methods can be cited as promising: preliminary sorting, landfilling, incineration, biothermal composting, low-temperature and high-temperature pyrolysis.

      Estimation of volumes of food-grade PET recycling in Russia

      Polymer recycling is at its initial stage of development in Russia. The use of recycled polymers holds much promise in view of continuous environmental restrictions. The growth of polymer recycling capacities that began in 2005 continued in 2008-2009. At least eight waste selection and recycling facilities are under design or construction at present, with four of them to be commissioned in 2011.

      The current demand for recycled PET exceeds the supply. Delegates of the Russian Congress of Plastic Converters will be informed of the experience in the creation of polymer recycling enterprises and industrial chains in Russia, growth trends and market prospects, basic polymer recycling technologies.
