Cleaning of Sava lake

 2 June 2012, Belgrade  – Na Adi Ciganliji je danas održano peto za redom podvodno čišćenje Savskog jezera,

U samoj akciji podvodnog čišćenja Savskog jezera učestvovalo je 100 ronilaca iz MUP-a Srbije, SOPAS-a i Specijalnih brigada Vojske Srbije. Petu godinu za redom, Komisija za sport i životnu sredinu Predsedništva Olimpijskog komiteta Srbije organizovala je podvodno čišćenje Savskog jezera.

Osnovna ideja ove akcije je da se podigne svest društva o potrebi zaštite životne sredine, a kako je to jedna od olimpijskih vrednosti, Olimpijski komitet Srbije je i ove godine organizovao akciju u cilju edukacije stanovništva, posebno onih najmlađih.

 

U samoj akciji podvodnog čišćenja Savskog jezera učestovalo je 80 ronilaca iz MUP-a Srbije, SOPAS-a i Specijalnih brigada Vojske Srbije. Pre početka akcije, prisutnima su se obratili predsednik OKS Vlade Divac, Vensan Dežer, šef delegacije EU u Srbiji i Zoran Gajić, direktor JP „Ada Ciganlija“.

Predsednik OKS Vlade Divac izjavio je: „Obzirom na to da je očuvanje životne sredine jedna od osnovnih olimpijskih vrednosti, OKS sa zadovoljstvom svake godine učestvuje u ovoj akciji. Želimo da ukažemo na to, koliko je važno da čuvamo sredinu u kojoj živimo, i da je ostavimo što lepšu za buduće generacije. Posebno mi je drago što ove godine učestvuju i ovi najmlađi, jer bi trebalo od malih nogu da nauče koje su to prave životne vrednosti.”

„Hvala svima što ste došli u ovako velikom broju, posebno roniocima koji su stigli iz svih delova Srbije. Mnogo nam znači što podržavate ovu akciju i nadam se da ćemo ove godine izvaditi manje smeća nego prethodne,“ rekla je Božana Ostojić, Predsednica Komisije za sport i životnu sredinu OKS, idejni tvorac ove akcije.

Pre nego što se i sam priključio roniocima u podvodnom čišćenju jezera Vensan Dežer, šef Delegacije evropske komisije u Srbiji izrazio je zadovoljstvo što je današnja akcija postala tradicionalna i dodao da se čišćenje održava u sklopu evropske zelene nedelje čiji je slogan „Svaka kap je bitna“: „Velika mi je čast što sam već treću godinu na Adi sa Olimpijskim komitetom i roniocima. Ove nedelje obležavamo Evropsku zelenu nedelju, nedelju zaštite životne sredine, pod sloganom „Svaka kap je bitna“. To nas podseća da smo ovde u Srbiji blagosloveni čistom vodom. Moramo da pokažemo da tu vodu zaslužujemo i da svako od nas uradi nešto da očuva vodu za buduće generacije.“
“Ada Ciganlija je u potpunosti ispunila zahteve Međunarodnih institucija kada je u pitanju zaštita životne sredine, dobijanjem Plave zastavice za kvalitet plaže. Podvodno čišćenje Savskog jezera je akcija koja se tradicionalno održava već petu godinu za redom i u velikoj meri pomaže održavanju kvaliteta vode koji smo kroz redovne akcije i uz pomoć mehanizacije koju posedujemo podigli na najviši nivo.“ izjavio je direktor JP „Ada Ciganlija“, Zoran Gajić.
Deca su imala priliku da učestvuju na EU i EKO poligonu gde su se kroz radionice upoznali sa Olimpijskim vrednostima, među kojima je i zaštita životne sredine, kao i evropskim vrednostima.
Kao dobitnik prestižnog međunarodnog priznanja, „Plava zastava“, za kvalitet vode, Ada Ciganlija je idealno mesto za održavanje ovakve manifestacije.
Obeležje „Plava zastava” dobijaju plaže i marine koje ispunjavaju stroge kriterijume i gde se poštuju međunarodni standardi, a odnose se na kvalitet vode koji mora da bude u skladu sa direktivama Evropske unije.

Construction of Waste Water Treatment plant in Leskovac has started

Leskovac, 3rd April – Signing contract ceremony for construction of Central Waste Water Treatment plant is held. Living conditions for inhabitants are going to be significantly improved.

Serbian Prime Minister Mirko Cvetković, Minister of Environment, Mining and Spatial Planning Oliver Dulić, Director of the Serbian European Integration Office Milica Delević, Head of the Delegation of the EU – Ambassador Vincent Degert, the Dutch Ambassador Laurent Stokvis and the Austrian Ambassador Clemens Koja have attended today in Leskovac the contract signing ceremony for construction of the central wastewater treatment plant, which will significantly improve the quality of life in the town and reduce risks to public health.

Director of the Serbian EU Integration Office Milica Delević and the Dutch Ambassador to Serbia Laurent Stokvis signed the Agreement on the grant of the Netherlands in the amount of 7.9 million Euros for extension of sewerage network to more than 20 villages on the territory of Leskovac. Head of the Delegation of the EU to the Republic of Serbia Vincent Degert and the representative of the “Strabag” company Ivica Budiša signed the Contract for construction of the central wastewater plant in Leskovac.

Implementation of this project, along with the previously constructed landfill, will allow Leskovac to create conditions for becoming one of the biggest areas for organic food production in Europe. Leskovac is the only town in Serbia that can praise itself for bringing together so many donors and using funds provided by all bilateral and European funds for international assistance to improve lives of the citizens, said Minister of Environment, Mining and Spatial Planning Oliver Dulić.

Upon signing of the documents, Prime Minister Cvetković stated at the Leskovac Municipal Assembly that the project worth 24 million Euros will improve the quality of life of approximately 80,000 inhabitants of the town.
– Most of the funds for this project are provided by the EU and the Netherlands, and the project proves importance and necessity of cooperation with the European Union. The project is a good example of cooperation, a kind of model that is applicable and will also apply to other places in Serbia – Cvetković said.

The Prime Minister has invited contractors to implement the project on time, and wished the citizens of Leskovac to have a cleaner and healthier environment.

Ambassador Degert said that the implementation of this project will contribute to increasing the capacity of Leskovac in attracting new investments, adding that today’s signing proves that the European integration process is not just about political rapprochement between Belgrade and Brussels, but also about welfare and prosperity of the whole of Serbia.

The wastewater collection and treatment project in Leskovac is supported by the EU grant of 10.4 million Euros, 5 million Euros from the Ministry of Environment, Mining and Spatial Planning and 650,000 Euros provided by the municipality of Leskovac.

New Waste Water Treatment plant opened in Subotica

Subotica, 22nd March – New Waste Water Treatment Plant has been opened. Project worth 18 M Euros is funded by EBRD, European delegation in Serbia and City of Subotica.

Serbian Minister of Environment, Mining and Spatial Planning Mr. Oliver Dulić, has officially opened today a new wastewater treatment plant in Subotica, for the construction of which more than EUR 18 million has been allocated. Half of the funds were provided from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development loan, five million Euros granted by the European Union through the Delegation of the EU, and the City of Subotica secured another three million from its own funds. The governments of Italy and the Netherlands, and PC Vode Vojvodine supported this capital project with smaller amount of funds.

Minister Dulić thanked the European Union and the Europeans for help without which, he said, Serbia could not implement a number of important capital projects. “Serbia is now on a good track to solve all major environmental issues in accordance with European standards, but we do not have enough resources to shape our lives by the standards of the civilized world. We also do not have sufficient internal resources to make the steps that are necessary for our people to live better in the area of environment, but also the entire economy”, said Dulić.

In the opinion of the Prime Minister of Vojvodina, Mr. Bojan Pajtić, construction of the wastewater treatment plant in Subotica is an example of European integration in practice. “This particular example shows the importance of cooperation with the EU, how important European integrations are and how the EU can be our reliable partner in the implementation of projects that are of interest to all citizens of Serbia”, said Pajtić. He added that the new wastewater treatment plant is of great importance for tourism development in Palić, because it will create new opportunities and new investment in the area around the lake. EU Ambassador to Serbia Mr. Vincent Degert reminded those present that currently, in cooperation with the competent ministry, they are constructing similar plants in Leskovac, Šabac and Vrbas, and that this cooperation includes other areas. “So far we have invested about 400 million Euros for various projects in Serbia, and our main goal is to improve the quality of life of citizens in this country. We have a big job ahead of us, but I’m sure that together we will ultimately be successful”, said the Ambassador.

As stated by the Director of Waterworks and Sewage in Subotica, Ms. Snezana Pejčić, in 2004 the local parliament decided to reconstruct and upgrade the existing wastewater treatment plant based on the prepared design, in order to create a unique technological system that will allow mechanical, biological, and chemical water treatment. “In that way, the outlet water quality meets very strict criteria of both domestic legislation, and directives of the European Council for sensitive water recipients, in this case Lake Palić”, she said. Rehabilitation and upgrading of the wastewater treatment plant in Subotica was entrusted to the Dutch company DHV Water, which in 2006 offered the best bid for the job. “The works began a year later, first by construction of the water line, followed by construction of the sludge line, which is particularly interesting because by-products generated in the treatment process are used in gas generators to produce electricity which makes up 40 percent of the energy needed for operation of the plant” said Pejčić. After a technical inspection conducted in 2011, the plant received an operation permit last month. Today the PUC Waterworks and Sewage has held official Academy in the Town Hall of Subotica to mark the company’s 50th anniversary and 130 years of organized water supply in the town. Symbolically, these jubilees are celebrated today, March 22, which is World Water Day.

Green World – Green Serbia

5 June 2012, Belgrade – On the occasion of June 5, World Environment Day, the EU delegation in Serbia and the Ministry of Environment organized a programme entitled Green World – Green Serbia, aimed at raising environmental awareness, which is one of the basic European values, and informing the public of the strategy and projects initiated in this field. The government and the Ministry assess that, with the help of green economy, another 50,000 work positions could be opened in Serbia, Minister of Environment Oliver Dulić said. More from Aleksandra Novaković.

Two years ago, a drive entitled Big Cleaning of Serbia was organized and showed that the joint participation of citizens, economy and NGOs could produce significant results in the field of environment protection, said Dulić. This year’s WED theme is Green Economy: Does It Include You and, truly, green economy represents future not only for Serbia, but for the whole world, emphasized Dulic. Green economy is the topic of this year’s summit in Rio de Janeiro, where all the governments of the world will express the positive aspects of this type of economy in terms of its progress towards sustainable development. Since 2009, the Serbian government has been trying to turn environment protection into an economic branch as well, which is to stimulate local communities to open new work positions. On the basis of green economy, 10,000 new jobs have been opened so far. Last year, Serbia adopted the National Environment Protection Programme and is about to fulfill EU conditions in this sphere. The progress is reflected in the fact that this year the amount of recycled generated waste has dropped, whereas the amount of recycled collected waste has risen. Serbia has also reached positive trends in the opening of recycling centres, tire recycling, building of waste water processing plants throughout its territory, etc. Thanks to green economy, the Roma population as well has been gradually involved in these projects, which helps them resolve their social status and send their children to school, concluded Dulić, calling on all the Serbian citizens to join the Big Cleaning of Serbia drive on June 9, thus giving their contribution to a clean environment.

The EU delegation head in Belgrade, Vincent Degert, said that the EU was helping Serbia in this field through various ecological projects. He emphasized it was necessary to invest some 10 million euros to reach maximum results. The EU has helped Serbia harmonize its laws with EU ones and improve its administrative and educational capacities. Investments have been made in the Obrenovac thermal power plant, the building of a recycling centre in Subotica , the building of a regional landfill in Duboko, etc. Green economy has already been bringing profit and numerous benefits. It is also necessary to deal with the ecological catastrophes that have been striking the Earth for two decades and which can be prevented by means of joint actions only, said Degert.

On this day, the Green Initiative launched a drive entitled What Kind of Monuments Is Our Civilization Leaving Behind? It is estimated that more than 40% waste materials in Serbia end up in illegal dumps, by rivers, town squares, parks or children’s playgrounds, and that some 50 million euros are left on landfills yearly, in the form of recyclable secondary waste. By the way, 40% of waste materials on average is recycled in the EU annually, whereas the percentage in Serbia is up to four times as low.
