Recognitions were awarded to the winners of the prize competition for journalists and students

Today, in the premises of NALED, awards were solemnly presented to journalists and students who won the competition within the projects "Towards better food waste management in the Republic of Serbia" and "Management of glass packaging in the Western Balkans", which are part of the wider DeveloPPP program, initiated by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, and implemented in partnership by NALED, Sekopak, Esotron and Apatin Brewery.

"The concept of circular economy on which both of these projects are based, brings significant savings of energy and raw materials, and this is what we have all been advocating together since 2019, when NALED set environmental protection as one of its reform priorities," stated in his address, the Head of  Environmental Protection Alliance, Slobodan Krstović.

The award in the category of student works was given to the final year student of the Faculty of Technology and Metallurgy of the University of Belgrade, Đorđe Vučković, and the student of the College of Vocational Studies of the Belgrade Polytechnic, Mina Vučković.
