Preston-based Recycling.co.uk has recently delivered a series of presentations on the End of Life Vehicle (ELV) directive to delegates from the new EU member states.
The materials reclamation specialist transferred skills and technological know-how to delegates from the European accession countries, with managing director Charles Jackson visiting Lithuania.
The visit included showing examples of best practice and explaining new technologies developed for the company’s recycling division Autobreakers.co.uk.
Over the past six months, Autobreakers has taken charge of approximately 3,000 ELV’s, which equates to approximately 2250 tonnes of metal, glass, plastic and other materials. More than 85% of this has been fully recycled or sold.
The trip to Lithuania was part of an ongoing series of international exchanges currently being organised by Funding Finders. As a result of the seminars, Recycling.co.uk expects to develop firm commercial links with a number of the attending organisations.
