Romania’s Environment Ministry prepares EUR 3 billion projects from European cohesion funds in the 2021-2027 EU long-term budget.

Future investments target mainly waste management, air quality and biodiversity.

Romania has proposed to the EU a comprehensive investment program for the future financial exercise: separate collection infrastructure, intelligent systems for implementing the ” pay-as-you-throw” principle, upgrading the waste sorting infrastructure, investing in anaerobic biodiesel for LNG and alternative fueling systems.

“Our goal must be the implementation of the circular economy, the reintroduction of waste into the economic flow, and the reduction of deposited quantity towards zero. It is a measure that also helps protect the environment and provides a stimulus in the economy, especially regarding the production of alternative fuels, “state secretary Iulian Stana said.

With regard to improving air quality, investments have been proposed for the switching of wood and coal-fired apartment boilers to gas boilers.

Another area on the agenda of the Romanian experts’ meeting with the representatives of the European Commission was biodiversity. Investments were proposed for the protected areas of the Natura 2000 Network, the green infrastructure at the urban level and the Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve.
