Ruse Municipality is the first to submit a project proposal under the direct grant procedure No BG16FFPR002-5. 001 "For Cleaner Air!" under Priority 5 "Air" of the Environment Programme 2021-2027. The value of the project proposal is 36 966 315 BGN.
Its aim is to replace old solid fuel stoves and boilers with other types of high efficiency heating devices - air conditioners, heat pumps and pellets. Dismantled heating devices will be handed over for subsequent treatment. The revenues from their transmission will be invested in the implementation of green measures included in the Municipal Air Quality Programme of the municipality of Ruse.
The objective of the procedure is to contribute to the improvement of ambient air quality (AQ) by reducing the excessive levels of fine particulate matter (PM10) in the territory of municipalities with impaired air quality for this indicator in the period 2017-2021.
