Romania currently recycles 3-5% of the ewaste generated. International Development Norway. The Project cntributes to the infrastructure of waste recycling by comissioning a Plastic waste Recycling facility in one of the less developed region of Romania (Suceava County). Facility capacity: 500kg waste/hour. Number of new jobs: 6-10. The Promotor has started developing its own network of collecting and sorting waste from 11 villages adjacent to Suceava City-Romania during a previous Project financed by Innovation Norway (2009-2011).
Summary of project results
The Project promoter has succeed to create a sustainable business that is serving the adjacent rural communities.Through this project, the Promoter managed to put in place an installation for manufacturing new PET bottles, textiles, films and other products out of plastic waste that is collected from rural communities placed in promoter's vicinity. The installation works in batches of PET producing 200 recycled PET per hour, contributing to the doubling of the promoter's fixed capital.
Summary of bilateral results
Smooth collaboration with the Norwegian Partner during this implementation phase of the Project (March-April 2016), its swift reaction and contribution led to rapid & consensual decision making and enabled the progress of the BESURE Project as planned. Our partner was of valuable help in indicating the right technical solutions for a. the wastewater system b. for possible extra equipment to be aquired from Project savings, c. for achieving decent work conditions at the site of the plastic processing line (heating and ventilation).
