IES Biogas opens Serbia branch, inaugurates Pepo Energy plant
The opening of its new branch marks an important step in IES Biogas’ internationalisation plan. The company is pursuing several ambitious projects in Serbia; it has already built four plants and from next spring, a further development of the pipeline is expected with the construction of five new facilities.
IES Biogas’ plants in Serbia are located in various regions and process livestock waste, agricultural by-products and second-harvest crops, providing an opportunity for farms to self-feed and produce clean energy while reducing CO2 emissions.
Zorana Mihajlović, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Mines and Energy, officially inaugurated Pepo Energy, the 1,200 kW plant built by IES Biogas in Novo Milosevo, in January. The plant uses agricultural biomass, mostly pumpkin pulp and wheat residues. Other ministry and local authority representatives also attended the opening ceremony.
“Over the last years, we have been constantly expanding our horizons and positioning as leading industry players in various markets such as Italy, France, the Balkans, South America and Asia, building plants in 12 different countries around the world,” said Marco Mazzero, CEO of IES Biogas.
“The opening of this new branch in Serbia marks a further step in our international development path and will allow us to actively contribute to the energy transition in the country and to promote sustainable agriculture to the benefit of local communities.”
