In the national meeting attended by political decision makers and the protagonists of the WEEE supply chain, as well as representatives of the environmentalist world, the opportunities for developing the electrical and electronic waste management system will be presented and analyzed.

Among the leading companies in Italy, Remedia TSR, is the company of the Remedia Group, specialized in managing all the operations necessary for proper disposal: transport, treatment, recovery and environmentally compatible disposal of WEEE Professional Waste.
