Krasnodar, 26 March – Yug Times. High yields of agricultural crops cannot be achieved without the use of materials that may be dangerous for the environment.

Last week, Krasnodar played host to the conference, “Collection and recycling of agricultural polymeric wastes.” The discussion was attended by farmers, governmental supervising and public environmental organisations, agrarian scholars and journalists.

The attendees were welcomed by Ruslan Kokarev, Acting Director of the Association of European Businesses (AEB), and Viktor Grigoriev, executive of the Russian Union of Producers of Chemical Plant Protection Agents (RU PCPPA).

The main issue of the forum was expounded by Aleksandr Yefimkin, Ekopole Company General Director. This company was established in 2016 on the initiative of the AEB and RU PCPPA to organise and manage the process of collection and recycling of containers for agricultural chemical materials.

He noted that currently over forty countries use special disposal patterns for agricultural containers, first of all canisters. In these countries, 70% of the canisters are recycled. Global chemical companies and recycling operators plan that 50% of all canisters manufactured in 2020 will be subject to recycling.

As far as Ekopole is the major national operator of collection and recycling of polymeric agricultural waste, its example may be useful to explain the organisational principles for such activities.

“We sign contracts for waste collection and disposal services with major manufacturers of chemical plant protection agents, which pay us for this work,” Mr. Yefimkin said.

The advantages of such work pattern is a single standard, emphasis on the safety of collection and recycling activities, and transparency of the procedure of collection and recycling. The system is convenient for all players in the market: manufacturers, operators and farmers.

In 2017, Ekopole together with their partners collected 930 tons of plastic; in 2918, the figure was 1,500 tons. The plan for this year is 1,800 tons.
