Beo Čista Energija starts producing energy from waste at Vinča landfill in Belgrade

by Cristian Florescu

The Vinča landfill in Serbia’s capital Belgrade has started producing electricity and heat from waste, through a joint venture called Beo Čista Energija. This will help to reduce the amount of waste going to landfills and provide a renewable source of energy for the local area.

The waste incineration process is nearing completion, with plans to finish by June, according to Beo Čista Energija. This final phase of testing is crucial to ensure the facility is up and running smoothly.

The firm said that the plant, once it reaches full capacity, will be able to produce 103 MW of power. This is pending numerous permits being approved.

The waste-to-energy facility is a key part of the public-private partnership (PPP) for the rehabilitation of the Vinča landfill. The new regional sanitary landfill started operation in mid-2021 and the waste-to-energy facility will play a crucial role in managing the waste from the landfill.

The project envisages a facility to process construction waste and another to utilize landfill gas. In return for agreeing to these projects, the operator agreed to rehabilitate and close the existing landfill and build the new one in line with European Union standards.
