13 Central Wastewater Treatment Plant The CUPOVZ Project: one of the largest and most challenging environmental undertakings in Europe, which will resolve the problems of pollution and threats to the water table, and safeguard existing and potential water pumping sites in the City of Zagreb and the area along the course of the Sava River downstream from Zagreb.
Financing model – BOT model The concession granted to ZOV d.o.o. (in December 2000) encompasses: planning and construction of the Plant and infrastructure facilities, Project financing and management of the Plant until 2028, when it will be turned over to the City of management The Project consists of: 1. The central plant building for the mechanical and biological treatment of sludge – 1.2 mil. ERU (equivalent resident unit); in the final construction phase 1.5 mil. ERU 2. Management building, plant and servicing premises 3. Main wastewater input pipeline from New Zagreb to the Plant over a length of 10 km and the Mičevac pump station 4. Closure and additional construction of the Main Drainage Canal over a length of 5.5 km 5. Domovinski Bridge (transit/installation structure) 6. Construction of Čulinečka road from Slavonska avenue to Radnička road (3 km) The mechanical portion of the treatment plant has been operational since March 2004, while the final (fourth) phase of biological sludge treatment and processing has been operational since September 2007. Approximately 98% of investments have been implemented – completion depends on remaining property rights issues The search for a technical solution to the thermal treatment of waste sludge is under way There is an obligation to chemically treat wastewater The estimated investment value is €304 mil.
15 The third phase of wastewater treatment Project The Croatian Government issued the Decision on Designation of Sensitive Areas (as published in Croatia’s official journal, Narodne novine, no. 81/10) on which basis the Danube River’s entire drainage basin was proclaimed a sensitive area. The revised Water Utility Directive Implementation Plan of November 2010 adopted by the Croatian Government stipulates a transition period for the fulfilment of the commitments specified by the Community Wastewater Treatment Directive, which requires the collection of wastewater for facilities in the Black Sea drainage basin – a sensitive zone for installations above 150,000 ERU – with more advanced treatment by the deadline of 31 December 2018. The third phase of wastewater treatment entails, in addition to the second treatment phase, removal of phosphorus by 80% and/or nitrogen by 70-80 %. The national water management company Hrvatske vode has granted a water management license for the release of wastewater from the public sewage system in the City of Zagreb with treatment at the Central Treatment Plant (CUPOVZ), whereby Zagrebačke otpadne vode is obliged to undertake activities for the construction of the third treatment phase at the Plant, to be completed by 31 December 2016, for the purpose of protecting water management interests in compliance with the Program of Water Pollution Prevention Measures with target deadlines. The Project is nominated for funding from the EU's Structural Funds The value of this investment has been estimated at € 40 million.
16 Jakuševec Landfill Rehabilitation Programme On 18 November 1998, a Loan Agreement was concluded between the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and ZGOS, a City-owned company, to facilitate the rehabilitation of the Prudinec / Jakuševec Landfill. Investment value: €56 million The Prudinec waste disposal site rehabilitation project at Jakuševec is complete. All works broken down into packets have been assumed by the Investor. Currently, within the framework of the Jakuševec/Prudinec landfill, besides the waste disposal site there are: Construction waste recycling installation (350,000 t/yr.), Scrap metal yard (over 3,000 t/yr.), Discarded tyre yard (over 1,000 t/yr.).
17 The proposal of Zagreb Holding d.o.o., ZGOS Branch, is for the existing deadline (31 December 2012) for waste disposal at the Prudinec Landfill in Jakuševec in the City of Zagreb Physical Plan be substituted with a deadline of 31 December 2018. The previous deadline was set under the assumption that a thermal waste treatment plant would be built. However, thus far waste disposal is the only long-term waste treatment measure. The quantity of waste collected within the limits of the City of Zagreb is showing a continual growth trend. The capacity of the Prudinec Landfill and its technical potential ensure the conditions for waste disposal at the newly organized operational surfaces at the site up to 31 December 2018. Depending on implementation of comprehensive waste management measures, this deadline may also be extended.
18 Solid Waste Incineration Plant - SWIP The purpose of constructing the SWIP is to treat municipal waste by incineration, including the recycling of energy and sludge from the Central Waste Water Treatment Plant. The City of Zagreb Physical Plan (SGGZ 02/06) specified Žitnjak-East as the construction site for the SWIP, right next to the CWWTP. The relevant Ministry issued a ruling whereby the intended WIP Project was assessed as environment-friendly, subject to the application of environmental protection measures and the environment status monitoring programme. The documentation required to secure a location permit has been drafted. Efforts are being made to align the existing documents with new legislative requirements, in particular, with the new Physical Planning and Construction Act (Narodne novine, no. 76/07). The Project is nominated for funding from the EU's Structural Funds The City of Zagreb and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) are planing cooperation on this project The total investment value is estimated at €170 million.
19 The Zagreb Waste Treatment and Management Model The Strategic Environmental Impact Study on the Draft City of Zagreb Waste Management Plan to 2015 has been assessed.

The City of Zagreb Waste Management Plan to 2015 will be adopted by the Zagreb City Assembly as a separate waste management planning document.
