Baden-Württemberg is committed to the EU Strategy for the Danube Region and, in this context, offers the transfer of knowledge in the form of mutual visits and discussions with experts. This also includes for support, planning and implementing pilot projects in acceding and new EU countries. As part of this commitment, the State of Baden-Württemberg has initiated a project in collaboration with the University of Stuttgart, ISWA (Institute for Sanitary Engineering, Water Quality and Solid Waste) and the Serbian government in the Serbian municipalities of Stara Pazova and Indjijia.
The "analysis of wastewater, biomass and energy management" project will involve a preliminary study undertaken by Jovana Husemann from ISWA which will show how wastewater can be discharged in the future in Serbia. The background to the project is the insufficient wastewater technology currently in use. The aim of the project is to improve this situation by linking up wastewater, waste, land and energy management more effectively to create an added value for the Danube Region.
The project is highly promising and will function as a model which hopefully will inspire other states in the Danube Region to follow this approach and to work more closely together. The project is supported by the Baden-Württemberg's State Ministry using funds earmarked for the Strategy for the Danube Region and by the Ministry of the Environment, Climate Protection and the Energy Sector.
