Installation of MBT plant in WMC Biljane Donje nearing completion


Installation of the equipment comprising the mechanical-biological waste treatment plant at WMC Biljane Donje should be completed soon. The site, where the works are in full swing, was visited by the deputy director of the Fund, Mirko Budiša, together with the director of the company Eko d.o.o. Dino Perović. Once the installation is complete, an eight-week trial operation will start as part of the six-month trial run of the entire waste management centre. This is the fourth waste management centre to be built in Croatia, and with its 88,000 t/year capacity, it will meet the needs of Zadar and part of Lika-Senj County. For the project worth in total almost EUR 90 million, around EUR 49 million were granted for the EU funds under the Operational Programme Competitiveness and Cohesion, while 13.7% of eligible costs of investment is co-financed by the Environmental Protection and Energy Efficiency Fund.
"The Centre, together with the already built transfer stations in Biograd na moru, Pag and Gračac, represents a quality alternative to the existing landfills because the treatment of mixed municipal waste will be carried out to the highest European standards," said deputy Budiša during his visit to the WMC.
