WWF visited the MBT on September 20, 2018 as part of the program “Just Transition in Eastern and Southern Europe” with the participation of four WWF offices of Germany, Bulgaria, Poland and Greece. Representatives came from coal / lignite-dependent regions, regional government officials, trade union representatives from the mining industry and the energy industry and researchers.
The visit left the best of the impressions to the foreign delegations, as the program coordinator, Mr. Stavros Mavrogenis told us. "We had the opportunity to witness the process of mechanical waste treatment in an integrated way and with the discussion that followed a large extent the participants' questions were answered. We believe that the activity that you maintain in a successful way is in the spirit of a just transition that we support away from the lignite monoculture model. This was the main conclusion of foreign missions that departed for their homeland with the best of impressions. "
