1.1 million Euro Norwegian Grants for SIGUREC development in terms of WEEE and glass

The Norwegian Government, through the Norwegian Grants, has co-funded with 1.1 million Euro the SIGUREC project to collect recyclable waste implemented by GreenWEEE International, whose total value amounts to 2.6 million Euro, according to a press release issued in mid-June to The Diplomat – Bucharest

2016-08-20 02:37:59 - From the Print Edition

Part of the largest recycler in Romania, Green Group, the company is one of the most modern recycling factories for waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) in Europe and the only one in Romania that holds the WEEELABEX certification for treatment standards on three recycling streams.
"Our goal is to improve the waste management system by implementing a modern infrastructure, because as the economy grows, more waste will be generated and their management services must be as efficient and transparent as possible," said Marius Costache, executive director at GreenWEEE International. "We help waste generators and at the same time we support the recycling factories in Romania, which have the capacity but do not have enough raw material."
The funding project is administered by Innovation Norway, the most important instrument of the Norwegian Government for the development of Norwegian industry and businesses. During the project, 32 trucks for collecting recyclable waste (WEEE and glass), 430 abroll containers for storage and transport of WEEE, two Wolla front loaders (for glass) and 900 containers for selective collection of glass (from metal and plastic) have been purchased. The project will be implemented in Romania with the intention to improve the SIGUREC collection infrastructure and to develop the pick-up infrastructure for glass waste and WEEE from various categories of generators: HORECA locations, industrial customers, retailers, companies, office buildings and from the public. In addition, to manage the project, at least 70 new jobs will be generated. SIGUREC, developed by Green Group, is the first modern and automatic infrastructure for selective waste collection in Romania in order to encourage collection directly from the individual consumers and ensure that all separate collected fractions go straight to the recycling plants. It started to unfold in 2012 and now has reached 161 fixed and mobile collection points in 36 counties in Romania.
