Kristina Ikić Baniček, mayor of Sisak, signed a contract with Zagreb-based EPI Consulting, which is working in cooperation with foreign partners to construct a series of small biogas power plants in Croatia, starting with the town of just under 50,000 people, 50 kilometers southeast of the capital, national broadcaster HRT reported.

The plant will employ 15 people and provide 0.3 MW of electricity to the Croatian grid and will be built at a cost of EUR 2.5 million. Construction time is expected to be about nine months. The facility will utilize biological waste, leftover food from restaurants and green biomass from the city and the surrounding area. Fifteen-year contracts are currently been drawn up with shopping malls and restaurants to provide the fuel, the report said. EPI representatives said there is technically no incineration and that energy is generated from fermentation, without any impact on the environment.

Croatian electricity company HEP signed a deal in April for the construction of two wood-fueled combined heat and power (CHP) plants in Sisak and Osijek with companies HoSt and Đuro Đaković. The contract for the Sisak facility is worth EUR 18.95 million.
