The tender for Belgrade’s Vinča landfill shall be launched by July, said Goran Vesić, the city manager. The project for the facility, which handles around 1,500 tons of waste a day, began as early as in 2007, and it was restarted last year in collaboration with the World Bank, he added, and Tanjug agency reported. By the end of the year, the company that will manage the landfill shall be selected, Vesić announced.

The endeavor, assisted by the International Finance Cooperation, involves the construction, operation, and maintenance of a municipal waste treatment facility. The plan foresees the construction of mechanical biological treatment (MBT) plant with refuse-derived fuel (RDF) production, coupled with an RDF-fired CHP plant.

This will be the first major public-private partnership in Serbia, worth between EUR 250 and 300 million, Vesić said at an event marking 25 years since the founding of the city’s Environment Secretariat.

A recent investment conference was attended by representatives of 52 companies, he said.
