Minister Vesić: Vranje is an example of good practice

As part of the “Clean Serbia” project, a total of 141 kilometers of sewage will be built on the territory of Vranje, said the Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure, Goran Vesić, and stated that the wastewater treatment plant in Vranje is an example of what all such facilities in Serbia will look like.

In Vranje, Vesić visited the sewage works in the village of Donje Trebešinje and the wastewater treatment plant in the Ćukovac settlement, and on that occasion said that Vranje is one of the few cities in Serbia with a fully operational wastewater treatment plant.

“Not only is it in operation, but here there is a fully rounded system that ends with the production of electricity and the complete processing of waste water that goes to South Morava in its pure form. The electricity they produce from biogas covers 50 percent of their electricity consumption that way, and now we will help them install solar panels so that they can be completely self-sustaining,” said Vesić.

He stated that this facility is an example of what all wastewater treatment facilities in Serbia will look like.

Vesić said that complete sewerage, 141 kilometers of sewerage, will be completed in Vranje in two years at the latest, and that in the meantime the Vranjska Banja will also begin, and that when it is completed, Vranje will be a city where all waste water will be completely processed and returned to nature in its pure form.

He pointed out that Vranje is an example of how the state and city can work together and how all municipalities and cities in Serbia will look like in the next ten years because, he added, they will all have to process wastewater in the same way.
