Project Description

The project aims to repair and upgrade of the sludge treatment line of Brno's main wastewater treatment plant in the Czech Republic, including new sludge digesters and drying facilities in order to increase biogas production, reduce the volume and enhance the quality of the disposed of sludge.

The project will address several outstanding issues, improve the sludge treatment process to comply with recent legal developments in the field of sanitary sludge disposal, with special regard to sludge drying and the improvement of the energy balance of the sludge treatment.

In line with the bank document, successful completion of the project will contribute towards Climate Action by enhancing the produced biogas volumes, as well as ensuring that the sludge is treated to higher standards by drying, allowing for more versatile and safer disposal options.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF EIB

The EIB Complaints Mechanism is designed to facilitate and handle complaints against the EIB by individuals, organizations or corporations affected by EIB activities. When exercising the right to lodge a complaint against the EIB, any member of the public has access to a two-tier procedure, one internal - the Complaints Mechanism Office - and one external - the European Ombudsman. A complaint can be lodged via a written communication addressed to the Secretary-General of the EIB, via email to the dedicated email address complaints@eib.org, by completing the online complaint form available at the following address: http://www.eib.org/complaints/form, via fax or delivered directly to the EIB Complaints Mechanism Division, any EIB local representation office or any EIB staff. For further details, check: http://www.eib.org/attachments/strategies/complaints_mechanism_policy_en.pdf

When dissatisfied with a complaint to the EIB Complaints Mechanism, citizens can then turn towards the European Ombudsman. A memorandum of Understanding has been signed between the EIB and the European Ombudsman establishes that citizens (even outside of the EU if the Ombudsman finds their complaint justified) can turn towards the Ombudsman on issues related to 'maladministration' by the EIB. Note that before going to the Ombudsman, an attempt must be made to resolve the case by contacting the EIB. In addition, the complaint must be made within two years of the date when the facts on which your complaint is based became known to you. You can write to the Ombudsman in any of the languages of the European Union. Additional details, including filing requirements and complaint forms, are available at: http://www.ombudsman.europa.eu/atyourservice/interactiveguide.faces
