By April next year, the industrial zone in the northern Serbian town of Bač should have an operational electricity-generating facility running on agricultural biogas, Radio Bačka reported on its website. The power plant is being constructed by local company Slovan-progres DOO from Selenča, and its workers were erecting trench silos. Investors are enterprises from Slovakia, registered in the municipality of Sremska Kamenica as Agro-Energy DOO and Enesco Group DOO.

Dragan Stašević, head of local authority in Bač, told journalists the EUR 8 million worth power plant is already making contracts for biomass supply. He added this is the biggest local investment in ten years, portal reported. Parts of financing came from European Union’s funds and bank loans. The facility will have three units of 650 kW each, fired by up to 40,000 tons of waste from sorghum, maize, sugar beet and manure from surrounding farms, said Bojan Milić, investors’ representative.

The first phase of the construction should be completed in September. Stašević and Juraj Bocka from Slovan said 15 to 20 people will be employed and the electricity will be supplied to the grid. Hot water and fertilizer from production will be used locally.
