The industrial waste will be used in the systemic road construction in Ukraine from 2021

07/ 09/ 2020
  The possibility of using industrial waste in the construction of roads is provided by the draft Concept of the State Target Economic Program for the construction of public roads with cement-concrete pavement for 2021-2025. The document was published on August 5 on the website of Ukravtodor. According to the Concept, the share of roads with the cement-concrete pavement will increase to 30%, due to: Developing clear mechanisms for financing the repair and construction of roads from state and local budgets; Making construction of roads more environmentally friendly with the use of industrial waste and other by-products as aggregates in cement-concrete mixtures; Researching new possibilities of road construction based on modern energy- and resource-saving materials and technologies. These measures will improve the countrys transit potential, increase localization, reduce import dependence, tackle industrial waste management issues, create new jobs, and allocate efficiently budget funds for the road sector.

Back in May, the European Business Association addressed the representatives of the Government and the Parliament with proposals for the active use of metallurgical slag and ash-slag materials in construction. After all, in Ukraine, there are more than 160 million tons of slag from metallurgical plants and about 250 million tons of ash-slag materials from thermal power plants accumulated on the dumps of industrial enterprises. Every year these figures increase by 10-11 million tons and 6-7 million tons, respectively. Therefore, the proposed Concept is quite relevant for fostering the economic development of the country in a progressive way. The business community conceptually supports the Ukravtodor initiative. At the same time, the EBA experts urge the respective parties to revise the text of the document and consider the following three proposals: Add industrial by-products / secondary raw materials to the list of materials that can be used in the road construction process. After all, some materials in the future may change their legal status as waste considering the planned waste management reform. Clarify the possibility of financing the Program with the State Road Fund. Give priority to the use of secondary raw materials as aggregates in cement-concrete mixtures and layers of the base of roads. In particular, the priority use of Portland slag cement and alkali-activated slag cement. We hope for the further implementation of business proposals that will bring Ukraine closer to environment-friendly and economically sound infrastructure development!   Be the first to learn about the latest EBA news with our Telegram-channel – EBAUkraine.
