Wabio commences construction of €20m biogas plant in Serbia
The 2.4 MW biogas plant will be built near the border between Nova Crnja in Serbia and Romania. Wabio's intention is to utilise the fields as energy sources, and convert waste biomass into biogas.
According to the investor's announcement, the bioenergy system could provide 50 million kilowatt hours of electricity, which would be enough to supply 15,000 households or supply 7,500 cars with fuel for a period of one year.
The value of the investment in Nova Crnja is €20 million, with Wabio reportedly planning similar investments in other parts of Serbia.
German ambassador to Serbia Anke Konrad said: "Looking to the future, Serbia will have to change the way energy is produced and consumed, and move away from fossil sources, such as coal, and move closer to renewable energy sources. This will help not only in preserving the environment, but also in creating energy independence in Serbia."
