The aim of the Municipality of Zabalj is to have its total energy consumption from renewable sources by 2030, said the head of the municipality, Uros Radanovic.

As he said for eKapija, there’s already an interest from investors in the construction of facilities that would produce green energy in this small municipality in southeast Backa, which has no industrial polluters – around 25,000 residents, mostly agriculturists, primarily produce fruit.

– An Austrian company is interested in building a biomass reactor. They are currently preparing the feasibility study for that project. The reactor would use corn waste as the raw material, which the Austrian company would buy off from agriculturists to make methane and then turn that methane into electricity – Radanovic reveals.

Another company, from Norway, which, according to our interviewee, already has a branch in Serbia, wants to build a solar power plant in Zabalj.

– The solar power plant would be located on a larger area and the investors are currently negotiating with the Ministry of Agriculture, considering that the facility would be built on Class 7 free state land – Radanovic says.

As part of the green agenda, he emphasizes, there is already a plan to build a water factory and a waster water treatment facility in the municipality and efforts toward it are ongoing.

Our interviewee says that the municipality also plans additional investments. One of them is the construction of a mini facility for the recycling of glass, which is soon to start being made by a Hungarian company, and two business zones are also to be expanded, at the request of the investors.
