At this stage, Serbia is actively taking initiatives towards “REUSE, REDUCE and RECYCLE” policy in order to achieve its future plan of effective waste management, and Eco-Spectrum was invited to share their experience in waste management discussions with City of Niš Palilula municipality and Business Association KOMDEL from Belgrade.
On 7th September 2022 a special conference under the name “TREATMENT OF ORGANIC WASTE” was held in town Niš at the Niš University - Faculty of Occupational Safety. The conference was organized under the patronage of City of Niš Palilula municipality, Business Association KOMDEL from Belgrade and Public Utility Company Mediana in Niš. The conference was attended by more than 60 representatives of local municipalities, in addition to other specialists in waste and ecology experts.
Only two private companies have been invited to this conference to present their solution on waste management at the conference; Eco-Spectrum LLC and Composting LLC. Eco-Spectrum proposed a targeted solution based on extensive study of the waste situation in Serbia. The solution also was built on regional economic, social and environmental factors as important pilers to draw a complete image with underlying impacts that are inter-influential with the waste management program. Along side with Composting LLC, Eco-Spectrum presented technically and financially feasible options that have been received on a very positive note from the audience.
Being invited to this scientific conference is an honor to Eco-Spectrum and yet another opportunity to carry our company mission and vision towards a cleaner planet to a new part of the world, and also benefit from the insight and experience of our colleagues in Serbia who are working towards the same goal.
The Republic of Serbia is located in in southeastern Europe, in the central part of the Balkan Peninsula and partly the Pannonian lowland, with a population of around 10 million.
According to studies carried out in 2022, the largest portion of the collected waste from Serbian households is being disposed to landfills without any prior treatment, with only 3-4% of waste being sorted. This also include dumping waste to ecologically unsustainable unsanitary landfills as the number of sanitary landfills is considered to be small when compared to amount of waste generated, which is about 2.2 million tons per year. In terms of hazardous waste, Serbia doesn’t have any landfills for hazardous waste or any treatment plants yet.
