GreenWEEE to open a new plant in Campia Turzii

The Romanian company GreenWEEE International continues its growth strategy, thus doubling its production capacity to 100,000 tons per year.

2017-06-20 15:30:09 - From the Print Edition

Founded in Buzau in 2009 and part of the integrated recycling park Green Group, the company will invest 3.5 million Euro in the second factory in Campia Turzii for treating waste electrical and electronic equipment. At the same time, following an investment of five million Euro, the plant based in Buzau will benefit in the first half of 2018 from an upgrading and increasing of production capacity and will purchase the first recycling equipment for LCD screens in Romania.

According to the timeline, the new plant is aimed to begin in June 2017 and will employ the most advanced technologies and processes for refrigerators, washing machines, IT&C equipment and other electrical and electronic equipment, with an annual production capacity of 25,000 tons. The plant will have permanent activity, and in the next three years will create about 80 jobs.

"In a continuously growing market of electronics, the current investment was a necessary step to increase the production capacity in direct proportion to the quantities put on the market and for the acquisition of new processing lines," said Marius Costache, Executive Director, GreenWEEE. "At the same time, by modernizing older installations, consisting of the separation of the processing lines and their automation, we are increasing the productivity and the energy efficiency of equipment utilized, with a positive impact on the environment."

The plant receives for recycling refrigeration and air conditioning equipment, small appliances, electric tools, telecommunication equipment, and batteries. The WEEE is collected from the local market, by the authorized economic operators to take over the responsibility of the manufacturer, or through contracts with major manufacturers and electronic retailers.

To support the current collection system and encourage the collection directly from the population, ensuring that all waste goes directly to the recycling factories, the company invested in its own infrastructure for waste collection, the project called SIGUREC. Today, in Romania there are 161 vending SIGUREC stations, fixed and mobile, where all types of electronic equipment can be recycled.
