Global standard for sewage sludge treatment

Moscow signed the first concession agreement in the field of housing and communal services. The Greentech company will build two plants on the territory of the Mosvodokanal treatment facilities. They will deal with the processing of sewage sludge in accordance with world environmental standards. No budgetary costs will be required, but at the same time the finished objects will become the property of Moscow.
The issue of waste-free treatment of sewage sludge has been discussed in the capital for many years. In August 2020, a bidding process for the right to conclude a concession agreement on the creation of a processing plant was announced. Based on the results of the competitive procedures, the concession agreement was concluded with Greentech LLC. The city will allocate sites for factories on the territory of the Mosvodokanal treatment facilities. The first 3.5 years the investor will build factories, and then 17 years – operate the production. Under the terms of the agreement, after putting the facilities into operation Greentech will undertake heat treatment (drying) and subsequent disposal of the sludge.

THE TERM FOR WHICH THE CONCESSION AGREEMENT WAS SIGNED
The resulting product will be supplied to cement plants for use as solid biofuel. It is assumed that each year both enterprises will produce up to 250 thousand tons of such fuel in the form of dried sludge.

THE TOTAL VOLUME OF PRIVATE INVESTMENTS WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK OF CONCESSIONS, TAKING INTO ACCOUNT A NEW PROJECT FOR THE CREATION OF PLANTS FOR THE PROCESSING OF SLUDGE
— FOR INFORMATION —
The concession makes it possible to equally take into account the interests of both business and the city: as a result, the capital receives a functioning facility, and the investor receives income from its operation during the entire term of the agreement.

Previously, Moscow used this mechanism of public-private partnership only in healthcare and for the development of transport infrastructure. Then the practice spread to other areas – those that are traditionally funded from the budget. Now the city is already implementing five large concession projects: in health care, road construction, off-street transport, housing and communal services, as well as in the social sphere.
TODAY, DRYING IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE AND ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY WAY TO UTILIZE SLUDGE, WHICH ALLOWS YOU TO GET DEMANDED PRODUCTS INSTEAD OF WASTE
