Miyamoto International, a California-based engineering firm specialized in reconstruction after war and natural disaster, has agreed to build a waste management system in Kyiv to process and recycle the waste generated from the demolition of war-damaged buildings, city officials said.

"This is an important phase of the restoration actively taking place in the region now," Ruslan Kravchenko, the head of the Kyiv Regional Military Administration, said in his Facebook account. "During the dismantling of buildings destroyed by occupiers, a huge amount of such waste is generated. We also want to improve their recycling with modern global technologies to create opportunities for their reuse."

Miyamoto, which opened an office in Ukraine last year, is also building a modern waste processing facility with funding from international donors, Kravchenko said, adding that many details of the project, including some financing, still have to be worked out.

The company has worked in reconstruction after wars and social strife in more than 20 countries, including Afghanistan, Syria, Somalia and several Balkan nations, according to its website.
