Experiences: Slovenia

Continuing with our experience stories….now we go to a positive story on how projects can be created to improve the living and preservation of nature.

Got some experiences? We are open for sharing 🙂



Project winner of the Campaign
„EU project, my project“ 


Plant for drying waste mud at the central cleaning plant in Novo Mesto was project winner 2017 of the Government Office for Development and European Cohesion Policy campaign „EU project, my project“.

The total value of the project was over 17.5 million EUR:

  • The EU contributed over 8 million 300 thousand euros.
  • The Republic of Slovenia contributed almost 1.5 million euros.
  • The Municipality of Novo Mesto contributed almost 7 million 765 thousand euros.


This EU project was an absolute winner in the region of south-eastern Slovenia as well as on the level of  entire Slovenia. It has received the most votes  among all registered projects –12.500 votes.


The successful project „Plant for drying waste mud“ from the previous  European cohesion policy was developed by the Municipality of Novo Mesto with a comprehensive approach to the  renovation of communal infrastructure in the Municipality Novo Mesto, where in the past there were many missed opportunities regarding EU funds.

The new waste-water treatment plant has successfully solved Novo Mesto’s  long-standing problem of environmental pollution including the stoppage of the discharge of mud into the Krka river.

Thanks to the project, today our environment is much cleaner while the green Krka river is noticeably improving and eventually will be back to its original beautiful state.
