Waste management company Snaga’s project to sort mixed municipal waste for recycling at a facility in Maribor was presented at a recently held international conference in the Slovenian city, which gathered mayors of Maribor’s sister cities at the invitation of Maribor Mayor Andrej Fištravec.

Snaga’s fully-automated facility, to sort more than 50% of mixed municipal waste into secondary raw materials using sensors, will launch test operation in late June, in what will make Maribor the region’s circular economy leader, according to a statement sent by Novi Sad-based circular economy consultancy Ekološki Krug.

Maribor already has source separation of municipal waste into wet and dry in place, Ekološki Krug top man Saša Lekić told Balkan Green Energy News.

Urban Soil 4 Food

Another project presented at the conference is Urban Soil 4 Food, with Sloga as one of the key partners.  At Urban Innovation Actions, an EU initiative promoting pilot projects in the field of sustainable urban development, the project to reuse organic waste, including wet municipal waste and garden waste, won a EUR 3 million grant from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF),

The Urban Soil 4 Food project is aimed at producing soil for urban gardens from organic waste and increasing the supply of locally produced food, while helping reduce CO2 emissions.
