The Port of Koper in Slovenia has been awarded this year’s ESPO Award in recognition of its work in creating a sustainable future for the port and its surroundings.

Koper was presented with the Award at a ceremony in Brussels on Tuesday night.

The theme of this year’s ESPO Award was Innovative Environmental Projects. Koper won the 2014 Award for its project, No Waste, Just Resources!, which aims to reduce the amount of waste through encouraging its reuse or reprocessing into environment-friendly materials, and includes such innovations as the use of paper mill sludge as an anti-dusting agent, the introduction of a heating system that uses recycled wood, the operation of the waste separation centre and composting plant and the reuse of marine silt as a construction material.
