The company at a glance

ECORESET, a company with a clear environmental and ecological profile, is engaged in the industrial recovery of raw materials from production returns and composite streams, aiming to maximise the diversion of materials from landfill.

By investing continuously in modern technical equipment and the quality training of its staff, ECORESET has developed into a modern Urban Mine with 7 main production lines.

Implementing the best available practices, the company recovers secondary raw materials (metals, plastics, inerts) and diverts from landfill materials suitable for energy utilisation by the industry, achieving an optimum use of 96% on average of all the materials it handles.

Transforming waste into resources

Where others only see waste, we see recoverable resources and raw materials, the value of which can be reintroduced into the production chain.

The main material streams we are handling today are end of life cables and electrical/electronic equipment, as well as shredder residues of composite materials.

By applying innovative processes, we are extracting resources from all these, which we contribute into production, thus supporting the transition to a Circular Economy.

Addressing pollution and its effects on public health

At ECORESET, we focus on addressing the real risks of environmental pollution from hazardous toxic components and contaminants, which have extremely harmful effects on public health.

We are constantly developing and improving the ways and processes we use to completely depollute the materials we process and to manage every hazardous component up to its final disposal, in order to eliminate all possible risks to public health and protect life, in the entire ecosystem that surrounds us.
