The Serbian state-owned power company (EPS) said on Friday that it has plans to invest some 650 million Euro into improving air quality.

The EPS said that it would install smoke filters and introduce other secondary measures to lower toxic emissions in its thermal power plants to meet European Union standards.

The EPS is planning to invest more than one billion Euro over the next few years in a number of project to improve air, water and ground quality. The power company has renewed and upgraded its facilities since 2001, including efforts to protect the environment and maintain power supplies as well as increasing energy efficiency.

The power company has completed the reconstruction of electro-filters to lower the emissions of PM particles resulting in a reduction of 2.5 times in 2018 compared to 2011.

The EPS is going to invest 217 million Euro into a system to filter sulfur emissions at the four blocks of its TENT A plant which, the company claims, is one of the most important regional investments in terms of finances and positive environmental effects.

The investments will bring reductions of up to 95 percent of toxic emissions by 2025 compared to the 2008-12 period.
