Ecopolis Corporation has become a laureate of the EcwaTech & WasteTech Awards EWA in the nomination For Contribution to the Development of the Industry, said Alexander Prokhorov, head of the Moscow City Investment and Industrial Policy Department.

The award ceremony was held within the framework of the largest Russian international exhibition on waste management, environmental technologies, ecology and renewable energy WasteTech 2020.

The Moscow corporation Ecopolis was established in 2017, it is the only high-tech complex of plants in Russia for the ecological processing of electronic and electrical waste.
“The company's technological solutions, which have already proven their effectiveness in practice, have received international recognition. This is the only recycling complex in our country that provides a full cycle of recycling electronic waste. The corporation has three factories, two of them are located in Moscow. They form a single production chain that allows up to 95% of recyclable raw materials to be returned to the economy as secondary materials, ”said Alexander Prokhorov.
The EcwaTech & WasteTech Awards EWA was presented for the first time. Its main goal is to identify and promote professional practices in the areas of plumbing, waste management and the environmental sector in Russia and the CIS. Ecopolis became the best among companies and individuals who presented the most revolutionary equipment, technologies and programs in the field of water supply and sewerage, waste management and ecology.
“The corporation has existed for three years, but during this time they have managed to fine-tune the entire chain of electronic waste disposal. The company is also actively working on the creation of infrastructure for the collection of old electronics from the public and industrial enterprises. Since the beginning of the year, the enterprise has reached the rate of recycling about 2 thousand tons of electronic waste per month”, - said General Director of the SEZ Technopolis Moscow Gennady Dyogtev.
One of the corporation's plants is Ekoplast - localized on the territory of the SEZ Technopolis Moscow, where up to 25 thousand tons of mixed body plastics can be processed per year, which are again used in the production of packaging films, pipes, containers, technical equipment parts and household items.
“The Russian processing industry is just beginning to emerge. And absolutely everyone is interested in its development - the state, business, and the population. This is especially true for the segment of recycling waste electronic and electrical equipment. After all, e-waste is a source of valuable recyclable resources. It is the processing of electronics into secondary raw materials that can become a driver for the development of a circular economy in our country. Therefore, we consider it very important to popularize the correct attitude to used equipment, that is, its ecological recycling with the return to production of the maximum amount of materials,” said Maxim Lobanov, General Director of the Ecopolis Corporation.
