Earlier, the head of the Duma Committee on ecology and environmental protection Vladimir burmatov has told RIA Novosti that the Committee had prepared a bill on the processing of expired food products into animal feed and fertilizer. The draft law was sent to relevant ministries for official opinions. The bill text is available to RIA Novosti.
"In our opinion, the implementation of the provisions of the draft Federal law will not only reduce the volume exported to the landfill of food waste, but will also provide significant support to farmers and economic agents involved in processing, including fertilizer. Also formed new industry, which will increase jobs," — said in response to the Ministry of trade and industry (text is available to RIA Novosti).
The bill proposes to establish the possibility of finding in circulation low-quality and dangerous foodstuff, materials and products in respect of which there is a possibility of recycling (processing), including through the placement of fertilizer and animal feed. It is also proposed to grant the right but not the obligation, organizations-"the recyclers" to bear the expenses on examination, storage, transportation, disposal or destruction of poor-quality products. This avoids circulation of substandard and dangerous food products in order to use them for food.
