Angarsk Petrochemical Company, an enterprise of Rosneft Oil Company’s refining complex, has become a laureate of the 2nd Russian Contest ‘Reliable Partner in Ecology’. The enterprise has received a diploma for implementing technology for construction waste utilisation resulting in a certified inert material obtained. The technology provided for reducing the construction waste storage space at a landfill, utilising over 60% of the total volume of waste from the facility, and using the final product as a replacement for common mineral reserves like crushed stone, sand, etc. for the in-house needs, including the landscaping. This indicator is planned to be improved further in the future.

The implementation of this technology reduced the environmental impact, and its economic impact exceeds 60 million roubles per year. The introduced method of construction waste utilisation is about processing and then and re-using the waste. Reinforced concrete and brick materials are sorted by the types and then crushed with the special equipment. The obtained production is certified.
