The City of Belgrade, Serbia, has received EOIs from 48 companies for the Belgrade municipal waste treatment and disposal PPP project.
The project will be designed to cater for the municipal waste generated in 14 municipalities of Belgrade, for a total of about 600,000t of waste per year. The overarching objective of the city is to bring Belgrade's waste disposal practices into accordance with the effective Republic of Serbia regulation, in line with EU regulation, and within the context of the country's EU accession negotiations.
Specifically the project involves the implementation of new modern waste management system, construction of waste treatment facility, waste recycling line, construction of department for production of energy out of waste and maintenance of Vinca landfill.
The project will be developed on a design, build, finance operation and transfer (DBFOT) basis.
The total project investment is estimated at €250 million (US$278.4 million).
