    The project focuses on overcoming barriers to meeting EU recycling targets and achieving full implementation of the Waste Management and Waste Prevention Programme of the Republic of Slovenia.
    The project introduces an integrated set of complementary technical, digital, environmental, social and circular solutions to unlock the full potential of the programme, maximise material self-sufficiency and achieve increased circular returns in the waste and resource sector.

  • With regard to public transport, particularly information on multimodality and the issuing of smart cards, significant harmonisation will be required for the wide range of standards and technical specifications. Deploying a set of harmonised European public data standards (Transmodel, NeTEx and SIRI), will enable union-wide multimodal travel information services.



    As part of the project, the beneficiaries will provide several solutions for clean transport based on alternative fuels and a number of sustainable transport services. It will involve the establishment of a network of compressed natural gas filling stations, a network of EV high-power chargers and city and regional bus connections.
