Russia, as many other countries, has already taken measures against e-waste. Ecopolis Corporation founded in 2017 is the only high-tech plant complex for the environmentally friendly processing of e-waste in Russia. The company manages three plants for the advanced processing of electronic and electrical waste with a recycling efficiency reaching 95% of the incoming volume of electronics:
- the Ecotechprom plant that recycles electrical and electronic waste with a capacity of over 75 t of e-waste a year.
- the Ecoplast plant that processes plastics and produces recycled plastic pellets ABS, PS, PP with a first stage design capacity of up to 25,000 t a year.
- the Aurus plant that processes printed circuit boards and non-ferrous metals with a production capacity of 12,000 t a year.
The combined capacity of the plant complex allows to completely solve the problem of the environmentally friendly recycling of used electronics and household appliances in Moscow, and subsequently, in the Moscow region.
The Moscow government, together with the company management, plans to form the necessary legislative framework to increase the share of processed and recycled products.
