Belarus ratifies rocket fuel recycling memorandum with OSCE

MINSK, 14 May (BelTA) - Belarus has ratified the memorandum of understanding between the Belarus government and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) on the joint project for disposing of the stockpiled reserves of liquid rocket fuel components. The text of the document was posted on the National Legal Internet Portal, BelTA has learned.

The memorandum was signed in Minsk on 16 June 2015. Belarus still has over 408.7 tonnes of AK-27i rocket fuel oxidant that was made in 1984 and earlier, nearly 194 tonnes of TG-0.2 rocket fuel that was made in 1989 and earlier, and about 96 tonnes of TM-185 product that was made in 1985 and earlier.

A considerable part of these reserves has passed their expiry date. The reserves are supposed to be disposed of by 3 December 2016. The OSCE is ready to provide assistance in the process: offer services of experts and consultants, including consulting firms or organizations. The OSCE will also provide equipment, machinery, techniques and so on. “The OSCE will provide as much assistance as possible through the search of necessary financial resources for the implementation of the project,” the document reads.
