Following the approved procedure the Republican national body prepared the project application, conducted meetings and negotiations with companies-partners.
    It is also planned to implement the project on the field up 13 hectares of 50 hectares of the Tashkent city burial dump of domestic waste, located in the Akhangaran district of the Tashkent province.
    Jointly with Japanese corporation ‘Shimizu’, that was invited to cooperate, technical documents on the order of carrying out of works and structure of the Executive Council of the projects of clean development mechanisms were prepared. Then they were approved by the Executive Council.
