The Armenian Government is submitting a package of legislative reforms in the mining field. These reforms related to soil waste management and reprocessing. The Government is proposing all soil management companies to have waste management plan. If the measures laid down in the plan are not carried out, the authorities for their performance will be handed to RA Nature Protection Ministry, while the company will provide finances. It’s also planned to recycle soil management wastes. Under the amendments, it’s planned to consider industrial wastes as soil management wastes, which hasn’t been the case so far. If there is anybody who wants to recycle soil management wastes, the latter shall pay royalties.
