Much work has been undertaken to date on the most effective way to dispose of waste over the lifetime of the project. This work has included identifying the volume of waste to be generated by the construction and operations of the Phase 2 project, integration with Phase 1 waste disposal, and appropriate hazardous waste disposal.
The majority of waste will be generated during the construction of Phase 2. This waste is largely non-hazardous construction rubble as well as domestic waste from the workforce. In comparison to the total amount of waste generated on the island, the waste will form only a small percentage.
To monitor and track waste we have introduced a waste tracking system. This system looks at generation, classification, transport, storage, treatment and disposal. The underlying principle of the uniform tracking and records system will be “care and custody”. The system will be comparable with international best practice and confirm to Russian legislative requirements.
A co-operative approach with the Sakhalin Administration will be taken to upgrade existing landfills for non-hazardous waste. The basis of the upgrade is intended to improve the current environmental performance of these facilities so that local administrators have a substantial base from which to expand capacity and service future waste disposal needs of the broader community.
