Project Status: FGD Plant at the โ€œNikola Tesla Aโ€ power plant in Obrenovac, Serbia

๐Ÿญ Exciting progress is being made on Phase 1 of the FGD Plant at the โ€œNikola Tesla Aโ€ power plant in Obrenovac, Serbia.

๐Ÿ” Phase 1 involves the processing of limestone, which means grinding and making a lime slurry. The lime slurry is then propelled through a pipeline to Phase 2, which includes absorbers with wet stacks that purify flue gasses. The gypsum suspension, a byproduct of this purification process, embarks on a circular journey back to Phase 1 through the pipeline network, where it is dried and deposited in a gypsum silo.

๐Ÿ“ธ The photos show the entire facility, the tallest being the gypsum silo, and the white building with the sloping roof is the limestone storage building.
Between them, you’ll spot the limestone mills, lime suspension tanks, and the necessary water. There are also the pipe bridges that provide pipelines which connect Phase 1 and Phase 2.

โœ… We are pleased to share that Phase 1 is on track for completion within the next month.

At the core of this endeavor is the transformative impact on the Serbian environment.
Thanks to Mitsubishi Power’s cutting-edge FGD system, we anticipate a remarkable reduction of sulfur dioxide and particle emissions by a factor of 9. This equates to a reduction from approximately 74,000 tons to a mere 7,800 tons per year.

๐ŸŒ Now that’s a sustainable win!๐Ÿ’ช

Stay tuned for updates on Phase 2, next week, as we navigate the last steps of our journey towards a brighter, cleaner future.

FBiH’s Transformative Energy Legislation for a Cleaner Future

Amidst ongoing discussions surrounding energy production methods, the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina (FBiH) has recently taken a monumental step by adopting a transformative Law on Electricity, ushering in European standards, and shaping the future of the energy sector.

This law regulates energy policy and planning, as well as energy activities and permits. It also governs the regulation of construction of power plants, electricity production and distribution, and the supply and trade of electricity.

On top of that, FBiH is moving towards a sustainable future with the Law on Renewable Energy Sources and Efficient Cogeneration. This introduces prosumers and offers a number of benefits to entrepreneurs.

๐Ÿ’šFBiH is taking big strides towards greener energy. These laws boost strategic planning, transparent investments, and a protection system for vulnerable electricity customers.

At Activ we welcome these forward-thinking initiatives as crucial milestones in the journey towards a more environmentally conscious and economically resilient energy future. ๐ŸŒ

Earth Overshoot Day ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿš€๐ŸŒฑ

Today is Earth Overshoot Day, a stark reminder of the urgency to take action and prioritize sustainable practices. ๐Ÿƒโ™ป๏ธ๐Ÿž๏ธ๐Ÿ’š

Let’s take a look at some facts*:

โžก๏ธThe world’s population has increased by 121% since 1970.
โžก๏ธThe average population size of vertebrate species has declined by 68% since 1970.
โžก๏ธ60% of humanityโ€™s Ecological Footprint is carbon.

Sustainable energy solutions are not just an option; they are a necessity. As we confront the challenges of today, we remain committed to pioneering innovative technologies and advocating for responsible energy consumption.

Through our and also partners’ expertise in Air Quality Control Systems (AQCS), Green Technology and Waste-to-Energy Solutions, we have the capability to make a significant contribution towards a more sustainable and eco-friendly world.

Earth Overshoot Day serves as a call-to-action, and at Activ, we are committed to leading by example, today and every other day. ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ“ข

European Parliament Approves New Energy Efficiency Targets for 2030

As part of the European Green Deal, the latest Energy Efficiency Directive has been approved by the Members of European Parliament in the previous week, paving the way for a greener and more sustainable future.

The directive requires member states to reduce their overall energy consumption by at least 11.7% at the EU level by 2030, with member states saving an average 1.5% of energy per year. This is a significant step towards cleaner and more efficient energy. ๐Ÿ”Œ๐Ÿ’ก๐ŸŒฑ

At Activ, we are proud to be an active part of this transformational journey. As a company specializing in energy solutions, we are committed to reducing emissions from power plants and promoting sustainable alternatives. Our expertise covers hydropower, wind and solar energy, as well as hydrogen technologies.

Through our innovative projects, we aim to promote the use of renewable energy, optimize the performance of power plants, and introduce cutting-edge technologies to increase energy efficiency.

We applaud the fact that the EU could become the first geopolitical actor to lead by example. ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŒ

Women business delegation in Ljubljana ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ผ๐Ÿ’ผ

Our Activ team member, Mateja Cmager, had a chance to attend a women business delegation in Ljubljana the previous week, organised by SGZ – Slovenska gospodarska zveza v Celovcu / Slowenischer Wirtschaftsverband Kรคrnten, and meet some truly amazing and successful women in business. She shared with us some insights from the event. ๐Ÿ‘‡

Director of the Center of Business Excellence at Faculty of Economics, University of Ljubljana, mag. Monika Lapanja, and MBA programme manager, Maja Koลพuh (Urh), introduced the attendees to the issue of cultural differences by conducting a BaFa BaFa simulation.

It was eye-opening to see how culture impacts our personal and work environments, reminding us of the importance of reflecting on our own behaviour and attitudes towards others.๐Ÿค

๐ŸŒEmbracing diversity is crucial in our work environment!

Attendees also had the pleasure of hearing from Alesa Mizigoj, the First Lady and driving force behind Medex d.o.o.๐Ÿ Under her exceptional leadership, Medex has become one of Europe’s top manufacturers of food supplements based on bee products and other natural ingredients.๐ŸŒฟ

Feedback from our colleague who attended the event made us think, more than ever, what a major impact on economic development, presence of women in business has.

๐Ÿ‘‰Despite major progress there are still some challenges that women in business face, as many of them have pointed out, such as limited access to finance, the stereotypes and prejudices associated with female business leadership, difficulty in navigating business and family life, lack of mentoring support and mentoring opportunities, โ€ฆ

At Activ, we’re fully committed to supporting women’s entrepreneurship. We’re determined to set new standards and empower the next generation of women in business, which is reflected in the representation of women in various workplaces in Activ.๐Ÿ’ช

Together, let’s create an environment that fosters equal opportunities and amplifies the voices of talented women across all industries.๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ”Š

We look forward to hearing about your project.
