Andrey Gotfrid, Director of the United Regional Center for Industrial Waste Processing, presented the project to the experts. As a result of consideration by a majority of votes, the Expert Council decided to support the submitted business plan. The applicant is recommended to pay special attention to compliance with environmental standards and requirements when implementing the project.
The decision of the Expert Council was commented by Viktor Sobolev, General Director of the SEZ IPT “Avangard”:
“Our management company considers this project not only as an investment project, but also as an infrastructure project for the special economic zone as a whole. At the stage of preparing the project for the planning of the territory of the zone, the construction of treatment facilities for industrial waste was taken into account, now we get an effective solution for solid waste. The project will also be implemented in the interests of other residents of the special zone who will implement production projects. Waste processing actually at the place of their origin (among other things, and on the territories of adjacent enterprises – Omsk oil refinery, Omsk rubber) will reduce the environmental risks of negative impact on nature. We will pay special attention to environmental issues during the implementation of this project, especially since today it is impossible in principle to launch a new enterprise without observing environmental standards and requirements. “
Based on the decision of the Expert Council, an agreement on the implementation of industrial and production activities stipulated by the legislation will be concluded with the applicant, after which the applicant will officially become the first resident of the special economic zone of industrial and production type “Avangard” created in our region
