The treatment and disposal of solid waste and wastewater, and their management at communal level, is a major problem for the eligible area. While there are controlled landfills for solid waste from big cities, there are also a number of uncontrolled dumpsites for solid waste from the villages.

The basic objective of the “Sustainable management and treatment of Bio-wastes by using Bio-fuels production methods-SumBio” project is the
sustainable management and treatment of Bio-wastes by using Bio-fuels production methods through the implementation of a Waste Treatment Pilot Unit (WTPU)
which will be the core output of the project, set in the municipality of Ohrid under the maintenance of Communal Service Enterprise Ohrid (CSE) with zero environmental impact. The project will be supported by two universities regarding the needed research to be implemented (National Technical University of Athens and University of Information Science and Technology "St.Paul the Apostle"). Municipality of Lagadas acting as lead beneficiary being a local public authority, in the cross-border eligible area is supported by Central Union of Municipalities in Greece (KEDE), representing all Greek municipalities and trying to bring good practices in the project but especially capitalize the project as a best practice.

By assisting beneficiaries to use a new and environmental friendly energy source as well as bio-waste management, the project aim to change the attitude of present and future generations. The beneficiaries would be able to reduce their environmental risky final products, operating with the gained energy and may become self-sustaining. Further advantages could be given by enlarging the size of the syngas-plants in regions and use the bio-waste not only for decreasing the amount of garbage dump but  for further use of syngas in order to generate energy for electrical purposes.
