U.S. Ambassador John Tefft signs a $350,000 grant agreement Monday, March 26 in Kyiv with Mr. Sergii Shevchenko, Director of SVIT-M, a Ukrainian private municipal waste recycling company, press office of US embassy in Ukraine reports.

The grant from the U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) is supporting increased recycling and clean energy development in Sumy, Ukraine, by partially funding a feasibility study on a project to recycle municipal waste from Sumy, and convert most of the remaining waste into refuse-derived fuel.

As Ukraine works to reduce the amount of waste that is landfilled and lessen the environmental impact of its energy production, the country is pursuing ways to increase recycling and usage of renewable fuels. 

While the city of Sumy participates in Ukraine’s waste-reduction efforts, it has awarded a contract to SVIT-M to recycle the city’s municipal waste.  SVIT-M will also convert much of the remaining waste into a renewable fuel that can be sold to feed boilers.
