Promoter – Financial IntermediaryGREENFIBER INTERNATIONAL SA
The project comprises investments to increase the promoter's capacity for: i) collection of recyclable materials; ii) production of polyester staple fibre (PSF) from polyethylene terephthalate (PET) flakes; and iii) recycling of waste electric and electronic equipment (WEEE) in Romania in support of the transition to a circular economy and attainment of national recycling targets.
The objectives of the project are to enable the promoter to meet increasing demand for PSF and for WEEE treatment, and to increase their own supply of feedstock to the group's recycling operations through expanding the recyclable material collection system.
