Sofia. With the RDF plant we will meet the requirements of the European Commission to reduce landfilled waste to less than 10% by 2030, Sofia Mayor Yordanka Fandakova said at today’s meeting of the Sofia Municipal Council, Focus News Agency reports. Fandakova pointed out that landfilling is the most serious problem when talking about municipal waste and minimising it has been and remains the main purpose of Sofia Municipality in its taking care of people’s health. “Currently, Sofia disposes of 16% of its waste in landfill thanks to the Phases One and Two of the Waste Management System. With the Phase 3 that we are talking about today, we will be landfilling below 10% to meet the European Commission’s 2030 targets. This is an important environmental goal in achieving high quality of life in the city,” she said.
“The technology that has been chosen for Sofia has been applied throughout Europe and is continually being refined. It meets the requirements of the European Commission for best proven technology,” said the mayor of Sofia and explained that with the launch of the new plant part of the old power plants of the TPP - Sofia will no longer work at full capacity, thus reducing emissions of fine particulate matter by 9.5%, carbon dioxide emissions by 7% and nitrogen oxides by 2%. Detailed information about the installation is published on Sofia Municipality’s website.

Sofia. The RDF plant in Sofia will reduce fine particulate matter, nitrogen and carbon oxides, said Deputy Mayor of Sofia responsible for the green system, environment and land use Yoana Hristova, presenting the report of Mayor Yordanka Fandakova on a proposal for long-term municipal loan related to the implementation of a project for construction of combined heat and power (CHP) plant in Sofia that will use refuse derived fuel (RDF),” Focus News Agency reports.
The loan that the municipality will receive from the EIB for the financing of the installation will be provided to Sofia’s district heating network. It is expected that the plant will benefit the environmental as it will reduce emissions of carbon oxides, nitrogen oxides and fine particulate matter. The level of fine particulate matter will decrease by 9.6%, which is 6.2 tonnes per year, the nitrogen oxides will decrease by 46.7 tonnes and the carbon oxides by 87.2 tonnes per year. Hristova explained that the plant will combust 180,000 tonnes of fuel produced from wastes, generating electricity for 25,000 – 30,000 households and heating for 30,000 – 40,000 households. Deputy Mayor also said that the plant will enable the capital’s district heating company to keep the price of energy through all seasons, reducing its costs.
