Serbian Biogas Association
The Serbian Biogas Association (SBA) is a non-profit and non-governmental association, founded in March 2012 to rally the companies planning to build the first biogas facilities in Serbia.
The main motive for the move was to achieve the goals aiming to develop and encourage the production and utilization of biogas as a renewable energy source.
Today, the Serbian Biogas Association is a representative association with over 50 members, mainly owners of biogas plants, but also other institutions and companies related to this technology directly or indirectly.
In partnership with domestic and international institutions, the SBA is intensively engaged in the further training of its members in the utilization of renewables and operation of biogas plants.
The Serbian Biogas Association is an active partner of German Biogas Association, Fachverband Biogas e.V. and a member of the European Biogas Association (EBA).
Promote the production and use of renewable energies.
The Serbian Biogas Association actively urges both efforts to boost the production and use of biogas for energy production and to ensure the most efficient energy consumption possible.
It provides intensive support to potential investors in realizing their interests. Thus, the SBA’s mission is to provide guidance for the legislative process in the field of energy policy adapted to the actual conditions in Serbia as well as to facilitate technology transfer by fostering contacts to European association and education of parties interested in investing in biogas industry.
The primary vision is to strengthen and stabilize the biogas sector in Serbia, by supporting and empowering its members.
Even though the strengthening of the Serbian biogas sector is an extremely lengthy process, requiring a lot of effort, dedication, and well-planned activities, the SBA has made to date significant headway in this direction, at the same time making ambitious plans for the future.
The SBA has a clear vision, thinking far ahead while being active at this very point in time.
In order to make its vision come true, the SBA works to empower its members, primarily by providing relevant information and knowledge they need in their work.
SBA’s efforts to strengthen the Serbian biogas sector would not be possible without collaboration and support of the ministries concerned, the public authorities within the energy sector, and institutions in charge of environmental protection.
