The decrease of materials prices on the markets led to modify the structure of prices for producers since operations shall continue no matter materials prices decline and minimum collection targets. 

All in all, 2016 has been a very challenging year for Ecologic, considering B2C & B2B WEEE collection perfomance, B2B renewals governmental approvals and professionnal kitchen waste furniture governmental approval. 

Ecologic, dedicated to WEEE in France is approved to manage professional kitchen furniture equipment. It has been developped for the purpose of its clients represented by the SYNEG (professional organisation that brings together and represents French manufacturers and the French subsidiaries of worldwide manufacturers working in all the areas of professional catering).

In 2016, Ecologic has reinforced its quality and environmental quality management and control in order to further maintain the level of quality of its operations, audits and services.
