New meters for better quality air in Smederevo

Thanks to the support it received as part of the project “EU for Green Agenda in Serbia”, the company “HBIS Serbia“ improved the management of production processes by introducing a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) system and installing new dust emission meters.


A specialized PLC computer program enables data from eight dust emission meters to be processed in real time and, if they approach the upper limit, it gives a sound and light signal via an alarm in order to respond in time by changing parameters in the production process.


In this way, “HBIS” fulfils the legal obligation to continuously measure dust emissions and manages to reduce dust concentrations in the air, which is of great importance for the health of the local population and the preservation of the environment. Additionally, an overview of average daily dust concentrations from 3 meters is available to the public on the “HBIS” website.


The procurement of the PLC system is one of 16 solutions for accelerating the green transition of the Serbian economy that received financial support for implementation, and arrived as a response to four public calls announced during 2022, within the “EU for Green Agenda in Serbia” project.


We remind you that the new Public Call for proposals for innovative solutions in all five areas of the Green Agenda for the Western Balkans was opened in February this year and will last until the end of 2026.


The project “EU for the Green Agenda in Serbia”, with the technical and financial support of the European Union and the partnership with the Ministry of Environmental Protection, is implemented by UNDP, in cooperation with the Embassy of Sweden and the European Investment Bank (EIB), with additional funding from the Governments of Sweden, Switzerland and Serbia.
