Construction of Sofia’s Waste-to-Biofuel Plant to Start in Early 2014

The construction of a waste-to-biofuel plant in Sofia is scheduled to start in the spring, the city mayor, Yordanka Fandakova, said. 
The contractor, Greek tie-up Aktor-Helektor, will start preparing the design of the plat in December as the contract is expected to be signed by the end of November, news portal infrastructure.bg quoted Fandakova as saying.
The construction works have to be completed within 19 months after the contract is signed.
The 213.5 million lev ($147.3 million/109.2 million euro) plant will treat more than three quarters of Sofia’s waste and will produce energy from refuse-derived fuel, which will be used for heating production by the city’s heating utility Toplofikatsiya Sofia, reducing its usage of natural gas by at least 10%. The construction of the plant is part of an EU-funded project for an integrated waste management system in the Bulgarian capital city, whose combined value is 346 million levs.
