By initiating biowaste recycling, we contribute to reducing pollution and the greenhouse effect

As part of the “Circular Communities in Serbia” initiative, the Crown Plaza and Radisson Collection hotels, along with Sava Center catering, have found a solution for organic waste. In collaboration with the company Esorton, they have begun processing it into electrical and thermal energy.

These three facilities within the Delta Real Estate group have collected 5.8 tons of organic waste in one month and redirected it for recycling. In doing so, we achieved a savings of 4 tons of CO2, which would otherwise take 190 trees a year to absorb. This ensures a positive environmental impact and reduces the greenhouse effect, contributing to the fight against climate change.

The kitchen staff at these three facilities underwent training in proper collection and separation of food waste to maximize the utilization of organic waste and enable more efficient production of electrical and thermal energy.

Estimates show that approximately 2.95 million tons of municipal waste are generated annually, of which 40% is organic waste, including food waste, which ends up in landfills. Recycling this organic waste reduces the amount of waste in landfills and the emission of methane, a gas that directly contributes to pollution.

Processing food waste into electrical and thermal energy represents a multifunctional solution that brings numerous benefits to the environment, economy, and society. Implementing this technology contributes to sustainable development, reduces the negative impact of waste, and aids in the transition to green energy, making our communities healthier and more resilient to climate change.

With this initiative, we have once again demonstrated that our company is committed to environmental preservation and continuously improving ecological practices.
