The Environmental Protection and Energy Efficiency Fund (FZOEU) granted 40% of the funds for the purchase of a hybrid vehicle for the transport of urban waste in Čakovec, town in Croatia’s north. This is the third such truck in Čakom, the local utility company, and it was payed HRK 737,200 (EUR 96,800).  Equipped with automatic identification of load transport and tracking system, it will be used for mixed and biodegradable waste.

The fund’s chief Sven Müller said it supports projects and programmes aimed at environmental protection, sustainable business, and the introduction of green technologies. Čakovec and Čakom are among the leaders in this area, and with this example they showed that, besides the fact they responsibly manage waste, they also care about the reduction of air pollution, he added.

Mayor Stjepan Kovač expressed confidence that the investment will prove to be profitable and that the company will soon renew its fleet with environmentally friendly vehicles.
