After four years of expectation from Ukraine allowed to take out unsuitable pesticides


To Ukraine the way for ecologically safe utilization of unsuitable and counterfeited pesticides in EU countries opened, this decision agrochemical business waited for nearly 4 years.

is said About it in the statement European Business of Association.

on November 21 the Government approved corresponding changes in the Resolution KMU No. 1120.

In Ukraine since the former USSR collected more than 8.5 thousand tons unsuitable for use and the pesticides forbidden to application.

"By 2013 the mechanism of the Basel convention in Ukraine partially worked and business could take out unsuitable waste abroad for utilization. However, it was suspended. For today there was a situation when we in general have no enterprises which could carry out safe utilization of this category of waste. And they were accumulated, and even it is worse - thoughtlessly buried", - Victor Pogorely, the coordinator of Agrochemical committee of EBA told.

It noted that similar utilization - very difficult and investment expensive technology. The corresponding ovens for processing cost tens of millions of hryvnias.

Even in EU countries exists some plants which can utilize such type of hazardous waste. Therefore, actually, unique way out is use of the mechanism of the Basel convention on control of cross-border transportation of hazardous waste and their removal.

So, according to the Convention, in case of absence or insufficiency of capacities within the country, the relevant government agencies (in our case of the Ministry of Natural Resources) to agree to cross-border transportation of unsuitable pesticides for their appropriate utilization to the country which has appropriate technologies.
