16,350,000 EUR


Implementation period
2013. Oct - 2017. Jan
Expected results

Upgraded environmental infrastructure through investments in waste management, and improvement in air quality. Precisely, reconstructed electrostatic precipitators at TPP Nikola Tesla A unit A3 and at TPP Morava and reduced dust emissions to 30 mg/Nm3 and 50 mg/Nm3 respectively.



Target Groups

TPP Nikola Tesla, citizents of Obrenovac 

Summary of the project

The focus in the environmental and climate sectors in Serbia has recently been mainly on alignment with the EU acquis. However, capacity to implement and enforce environmental legislation remains to be significantly strengthened. In particular, the enforcement and implementation of the legislation, including the transposed environmental acquis, depends on better monitoring, which should also feed into improved decision-making, environment protection and climate action.

Reducing dust emission from large combustion plants. Improving air quality, especially in urban areas and in the vicinity of major power and industrial plants. To improve environmental standards in air quality and waste management and to improve environmental infrastructure.

Programme/Project objectives

The aim of this measure is the rehabilitation and reconstruction of facilities at thermal power plants (TPPs) in order to reduce harmful emissions of particulates, thus helping to improve air quality and to achieve the key requirements of the EU Large Combustion Plants Directive.
