Balkan Green Energy News presents the third episode of the Perspective video feature, introduced to provide experts, decision makers, business community and other stakeholders with an opportunity to share with BGEN audience their insights on the important sustainable energy and environmental topics and developments in the Balkan region, Europe and worldwide.

In the third episode of Perspective video feature Ana Petrović-Vukićević, the president of the Association of Recyclers of Serbia, speaks about the issues the Serbian recyclers face and the expectations of the establishment of the Green Fund.

From the Serbian recyclers’ point of view, the introduction of the Green Fund is the first step in re-establishment of a stable and predictive framework which will provide continuity of subsidies for the recycling industry. With 60 million kilograms of waste processed on an annual basis, recyclers face difficulties in running their business mostly due to delays in subsidies payments. According to Petrović Vukićević, one of the main problems is the poor collection of environmental fees from dishonest polluters and the improper allocation of the funds.

“We will have a problem to show a positive account balance and we will be no longer credited by the banks. The establishment of the Green Fund may be a solution to these problems, and it should not be a budget line anymore. Instead, we want the Fund to be fed by the collected environmental fees on a basis of some kind of formula. At the same time we fight for the collection of fees to be significantly higher,” said Petrović Vukićević.
