This project funded by the EU was awarded to Kollvik Recycling SL in a public contest and involves a substantial improvement for these types of recycling centres (Clean Points) as well as a great saving for the waste management company of the country.
We estimate that just this installation will avoid the emission of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere of almost 3.000 tCO2e every year.
Should we extrapolate this initiative all the recycling centres existing in our country, giving service to almost 500,000 people, this Mediterranean archipelago would stop emitting more than 50,000 tCO2e per year.
