Under this agreement, SUEZ and ITOCHU’s 50/50 joint-venture will raise over €300m financing to build a 340,000 tons p.a. waste-to-energy facility with installed power production capacity of 25 MW and heat production capacity of 56 MW.

In addition, a dedicated facility will process 200,000 tons of construction and demolition waste per year. Finally, a new waste disposal designed in accordance with European standards will dispose of residual waste pending the development of the recycling policy currently rolled out by City authorities.

Once the new facilities are available, the municipal landfill of Belgrade will be closed. The joint-venture will undertake the remediation and long-term aftercare of the 60 ha landfill – one of the 50 largest in the world.

Following completion of construction managed by CNIM and Energoprojekt and planned in 2021, the facilities will be operated by SUEZ for a 25-year term.

The tender was organized by the City of Belgrade with the support of International Finance Corporation, the private finance institution of the World Bank Group.

Following the creation of SUEZ’s new Business Unit “Water Technologies & Solutions,” the Group announces at WEFTEC (Water Environment Federation's Annual Technical Exhibition and Conference) in Chicago, new contracts across various industries (Oil&Gas, Power) and launches new product lines. These new contracts and innovations confirm the dynamism of the industrial water market estimated at c.€95Bn worldwide.

SUEZ will bring leading-edge technologies to large industrial players like BP and LG&E KU to help them improve their environmental performance, meet their business and flow needs and comply with regulations.
