Biogas power plant will be built in Secanj municipality in Vojvodina. The municipality of Secanj has scheduled a public presentation of the study of the environmental impact assessment of the future biogas power plant for 31 August.

The investor in the project, local company Bio Pan Gas has filed a request for approval of the study related to the construction of a biogas power plant with installed capacity of 999 kW.

The Serbian biogas sector has made considerable progress in a short period of time, creating favorable business environment for investors. Owing to the efforts of the Serbian Biogas Association (SBA) and the support of the Ministry of Mining and Energy that remains committed to fulfilling the goals concerning the Energy Community, major steps have been made towards the strengthening and stabilization of the biogas sector.

In its activities to date, the SBA has proven to be a proactive partner in the process of developing new legal regulations on renewable energy sources, resulting in the adoption of new feed-in tariffs. In partnership with international institutions and organizations, the SBA plays an active role in the projects and processes which are of interest and support its members. The International Financial Corporation (IFC), backed by the SBA, made a new study analyzing and recommending new incentives for the construction of biogas plants in Serbia.
