Recycling park in Seixal gently recycles high-pollutant refrigerating devices
Higher EU WEEE targets since 2019: Exemplary rates of electrical and electronic waste recycling in Portugal
As waste electrical and electronic equipment contains recyclable, valuable metals on the one hand and pollutants on the other, all WEEE treatment plants must comply with the standards EN50625-2-3 and CCL/TS 50625 of the European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization (CENELEC) from the end of May 2020. This ensures that valuable substances can be reused and that pollutants can be disposed of properly without posing a threat to the environment.
Erdwich Zerkleinerungs-Systeme GmbH recently erected a recycling plant for refrigerating devices at the Ambigroup Recycling Park in Seixal, 20 km south of Lisbon, which meets the current standards and can process and separate up to 60 appliances per hour.
