12 May. FINMARKET.RU – By the end of 2021, about 1.1 billion rubles from the federal budget can be allocated to modernize waste processing equipment in Russia. This is stated in the financial and economic justification for subsidies of the Russian environmental operator (REO), which the company prepared on behalf of Deputy Prime Minister Victoria Abramchenko, writes Izvestia. Last year, she asked the REO and the Ministry of Natural Resources to prepare a project to support the renewal of waste infrastructure. The justification says that the amount of more than 1 billion rubles will be needed to reimburse garbage companies up to 25% of the leasing of equipment for sorting or recycling waste (for example, bag breakers, shredders, presses, screens, granulators).
