Zivinice Regional Solid Waste Project


Bosnia and Herzegovina

Project number:


Business sector:

Municipal and environmental infrastructure

Notice type:


ESIA disclosed:

05 Jul 2018



Approval date:

14 Oct 2019

Project description

Construction and operation of a regional, EU-compliant, solid waste landfill and a recycling yard that will serve three municipalities in Tuzla Canton; Zivinice, Banovci and Kladanj (the “Project”) with total population of 95,000. The Project would be financed by an EBRD loan of up to EUR 6 million and co-financed with an investment grant of up to EUR 2 million. The EBRD sovereign loan will be provided (via a legislated cascade of sub-loans) to the newly established regional solid waste company “Eko-Sep”.

The objective is to prevent further pollution of local water and soil, and reduce emissions of greenhouse gases.

The Project carries transition impact potential largely in terms of its environmental benefits and by entering into PSC between the municipalities and the Company, eliminating the cross-subsidy tariff system and improving operational efficiency of the Company. The Green quality stems from its environmental impact (i.e. the establishment of EU-compliant, efficiently operated regional solid waste landfill with recycling yard).

There is a Project Summary Document available for this project.
