Kosovo to tackle air pollution

During his visit to Kosovo, the EU High Representative Josep Borrell launched an EU-funded project aimed at tackling air pollution by improving the environmental performance of the "Kosovo B" power plant.

"Air pollution is one of the most acute environmental problems affecting the Western Balkans, including Kosovo. With this investment, the EU is providing a concrete contribution to improve the environment in Kosovo and the region, as well as to improve the health and well-being of people. The European Green Deal is a deal for all of us in Europe, Kosovo included. With this project, we want to take the first step in this direction. We hope and expect that our determination will be matched by that of Kosovo's policymakers,” Borrell is quoted in a press release issued by the European Commission.

The project, worth €76.4 million, will be provided for filters on the Kosovo B power plant, through the Commission's Instrument for Pre-Accession (IPA).
