Second Green Festival – Green Pavilion
Sep 20, 2017
This year, 23 local companies exhibited their Kosovo-made products at the Green Pavillion – a solid increase in number from the 16 that exhibited the previous year. It seems that Kosovars have learned a lot in one year. “Last year people picked up wood biomass pellets and asked what they were. This year they’re asking about the price for a ton,” said Ismete Thaqi from Thesari, one of the biomass pellet companies that exhibited at the festival.
The exhibiting companies were thrilled at the turnout of around 2000 visitors at the festival, while visitors were delighted with the variety of businesses showcasing their products. The visitors were surprised to find that Kosovo is producing, for example, mosaic tiles from recycled glass, plastic insulation sheets from recycled waste, LED light bulbs, and solar photovoltaic panels, among other products. Many were there to find a good deal. In fact, 45 new sales contracts were made to the amount of €1.3million during the three-day event. Among them was a notable contract worth €300K for a 400kw solar energy project. Additionally, a few export sales were made in Albania, whilst negotiations were initiated for exports to Egypt and Switzerland.
