With more than 1 million tons of WEEE financed and managed since the beginning of its activities in 2005, and more than 850 affiliated producers, as well as distributors, installers and waste managers, ECOTIC has established itself as one of the main WEEE management systems in Spain and within Europe.
Despite the enormous importance of proper recycling of air conditioners and other refrigerant equipment, due to their potential for heating and contributing to climate change, the recovery levels of this equipment are far from the optimal desirable levels.
The wide range of responsibilities and regulatory complexity of managing this equipment is the main difficulty faced by installers and distributors, who often find themselves in situations of doubt or uncertainty in order to ensure proper management.
For this reason, ECOTIC promotes the Ecoinstaladores (Ecoinstallers) program, an initiative aimed at installers and distributors of these devices, with the objective to provide them with a global solution for proper waste management.
Through Ecoinstallers they have free advice services, and numerous advantages such as free collection of waste in their own facilities, the completing of the necessary documentation, an economic compensation for the costs of reverse logistics and storage of WEEE, or obtaining a badge in recognition of good professional practices.
With the normalization of activities after the difficulties caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, throughout 2022 the Ecoinstallers program will intensify its activities. Among the main lines of action, the numerous training activities planned with the main associations of installers in Spain, the launch of new information materials, or the presence in the main fairs and congresses of air conditioning and refrigeration sector stand out.
