Promoter – Financial Intermediary
The project concerns the financing of research, development and innovation in greenhouse-gas-reducing technologies for waste treatment, as well as investments in collection equipment.
The project aims to improve the operation and functioning of waste treatment, by developing and optimizing waste-treatment processing technology, in order to achieve greater efficiency and recovery of as many by-products as possible. The procurement of more efficient, quieter and less polluting waste collection vehicles will also increase productivity and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Proposed EIB finance (Approximate amount)
EUR 80 million
Total cost (Approximate amount)
EUR 186 million
The research, development and innovation (RDI) activities will be performed within existing facilities. It is unlikely that the project will fall under Annex I or II of Directive 2011/92/EC. Nevertheless, the environmental objectives of the RDI programme and, if needed, the CO2 footprint, as well as the possible impact on protected flora and fauna (Habitats 92/43/EEC and Birds 2009/147/EC Directives) will be assessed during the appraisal.
The promoter has been assessed by the EIB as being a private company not operating in the utilities sector and not having a status of a contracting entity, thus not subject to EU rules on public procurement. However, if after the project appraisal, the EIB were to conclude that the promoter is after all subject to EU public procurement legislation (i.e. Directive 2004/17/EC), then the Bank would require the promoter to ensure that contracts for the implementation of the project have been/will be tendered in accordance with the relevant applicable EU procurement legislation (Directive 2004/17/EC and Directive 92/13/EEC), with publication of tender notices in the EU Official Journal, as and where required.
