Eco Center
"Bocac Lake"

Each year, the networks in the Lake Eco Centre Bocac collect, sort and process approximately 10 000 m3 of various floating waste.

Waste composition:

  • 60% of the value of timber low-fat – 6 000 m3
  • 35% of various types of plastic packaging – 3 500 m3
  • 5% other miscellaneous waste – 500 m3.

On the platform plovećoj initial sorting is done, then the temporary landfill waste further sorted by species.

Wood low calorie value

After removal from the water, the wood is cut and sorted.
Volume cut and sorted wood is about 3 000 m3. Of this amount 1/3, or 1 000 m3 of wood makes the big timber (logs, thick branches) low calorie value which is used for heating. The remaining 2/3, and 2 000 m3 makes rotten wood, thin branches and roots. The big problem is the system of roots of trees, which is adhered to the rocks as processing wood makes this almost impossible.

In the future, we plan to provide a timber mill.

Plastic packaging

  • 55% of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) – 1 925 m3
  • 45% Polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) – 1 575 m3

From this year, we started pressing and baling PET. Part of pressed bales are transported in Spruce PET Enterprise Ltd. Doboj, which deals with the recycling.

Pressing the volume decreases by approximately 8 times.
1 925 m3: 8 = approx 240 m3
Volume one bale:
90 x 60 x 70 cm3 = 0378 m3
Annually make 635 bales pressed waste.

One ball is on average 50 kg heavy, which means that the temporary landfill in Lake Eco Centre Bocac year end around 31 750 kg of PET waste.

We are currently in negotiations for the purchase of PE and PP waste.
1 575 m3: 8 = approx 197 m3
Annually we can make the ball 521 PE and PP, and 26 050 kg of waste PE and PP.

Various waste

Various waste such as glass bottles, aluminum cans, tires, insulating material (polystyrene, polyurethane foam …), refrigerators, freezers, etc.. After pressing down on the volume of about 100 m3, and then transported to the utility Park, Modriča.
Dead animals are buried in the space provided.
