Renewable energy sources – the future of the municipality of Zabalj

The goal of the Municipality of Zabalj is to get the complete energy it consumes from renewable sources by 2030, announced the first man of the municipality, Uros Radanovic. As he said for eKapija, there is already interest from investors in the construction of plants that would produce green energy in this small municipality in the southeast of Backa, which has no industrial pollutants.

– An Austrian company is interested in construction of biomass reactors. They are currently working on a feasibility study for the project. The reactor would use the remains of corn as raw material, which the Austrians would buy from farmers and make methane from it, and electricity from methane – reveals Radanović.

Another company, from Norway, wants to build solar power plant in Zabalj.

– The solar power plant would be located on a larger area and investors are currently negotiating with Ministry of Agriculture considering that the plant would be built on free state land of the 7th class – states the President of the Municipality of Žabalj.

As part of the green agenda, he points out that there is already a plan to build a water factory and wastewater treatment plant in the municipality, and to work on it:

– They have completed the design of wastewater treatment plants for Žabalj and Đurđevo. The value of the construction of the treatment plant is estimated at around 4-5m EUR, and the municipality will apply for this investment with the ministry, and the realization will start when the funds are provided. When it comes to Fr. water factories, we are currently in the procedure for preparing project-technical documentation for its construction, because we have to provide quality drinking water for the population, considering that our water in Vojvodina is full of arsenic. However, the study is still in progress, which lasts for a long time due to the analysis of samples from artesian wells, which are done on a two-week level – Radanović explains.

Additional investments are planned in the municipality. One of them is the construction of a mini plant for glass recycling, which will soon be built by a Hungarian company, and the expansion of two work zones will also be done, at the request of investors.
