Installation of rotational molding machine, purchased within pilot initiative of the Centre of Environmental Solutions, delivered to the company Beltechagroplast

At the end of October the delivery of rotational molding machine, that costs more than 40 000 USD and was produced in Russia, was completed on the Belarusian enterprise "Beltechagroplast" (village New Zabolotye Uzda district, Minsk region).

 

 

 

 

The new rotational molding machine produces reservoirs that form the basis of local treatment facilities (LTF). Also the local treatment facility include specially equipped leach field.

Pilot Initiative "Development of system of design and construction of local treatment facilities in Belarus", was launched in December 2015. It provides for creating the conditions for installing safe local treatment facilities for small residential complexes (up to 50 people).

So far, local treatment facilities made of fiberglass. Waste fiberglass that inevitably arise during the manufacturing process, were not reused. With the transition to the rotational molding technology the raw material for the production of LTFs has changed. VOCs are now made from plastic. Waste plastic that inevitably arise during the production process, can be melted again and used for manufacturing during the next production cycle.

 

 

 

 

The environmental effect from the transition to the technology of rotational molding is in the reduction of unprocessed waste fiberglass by 30 tons per year, reducing the air pollution (smell of fiberglass).

The economic effect from the modernization of production using the funds of the European Union is in the keeping the same price of production of septic tanks and sewage treatment plants, with increasing its strength and quality.

The social effect from the modernization is in the establishment of three additional workplaces at the plant and additional jobs at partner companies, ensuring the installation of septic tanks and leach fields construction.

Currently first test reservoir (tank) was produced. It is under testing of strength.

Site, where the first LTF with new tank wiil be designed and built, is under consideration.
