Ambassador: Dredging to Make Danube Navigable All Year (Bulgaria)
Prista Oil, Bulgaria’s largest automobile and industrial lubricant-maker, will build the first waste lubricant recycling plant in Ukraine in the spring of 2013.
The news was announced Tuesday by Mikola Baltaji, Ukrainian Ambassador to Bulgaria, during a meeting with Stefko Burdzhiev, District Governor of the Danube city of Ruse, where Prista Oil is headquartered.
The Ukrainian diplomat went to Ruse on a working visit and he met with Burdzhev, and his two deputies, Vesko Marinov, and Andrian Raykov.
According to reports of Darik radio, the Ukrainian government has approved the construction of the waste lubricant recycling plant and the facility is expected to bring economic and environmental benefits for the country.
During the talks, the Ukrainian Ambassador expressed the country’s interest in improving navigation on the Danube, adding that a company based in Izmail could secure the river dredging and the deepening of the waterways.
This step could help make the Danube navigable all year long.
