WEEE recycling solutions

At Enva, we provide the perfect solution to all of your WEEE plastic recycling needs. Our efficient and environmentally friendly process ensures that all plastics found in electrical materials are carefully separated before being transformed into reusable granules.

Under the regulations stipulated by the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive, targets have been set to reduce the millions of tonnes of plastic wasted globally each year that come from sources such as household appliances, computer equipment, toys and much more. This is a true upgrading process: we take a waste product and transform it into a valuable raw material that has a variety of further uses, from injection moulding to regrinds for the plastics industry. Not only does this ensure that as little WEEE waste as possible ends up in landfill, it also provides cost-effective, high quality end product plastics for resale and distribution.
