Leading partner ZEOS was created in 2005 in response to European Community requests for organized collection and management of waste electronics. By its design, the non-profit scheme is an extension of the responsibility of manufacturers and distributors of this equipment. In addition to managing waste electrical and electronic equipment, waste portable batteries and accumulators, and waste grave candles, ZEOS has also become involved in the European funding program for environmental projects Life. Through the Life mechanism, ZEOS is upgrading its core business and expanding its activities in the area of informing, raising awareness and influencing social habits. Life Turn to e-circular is the third project for which ZEOS has received European funding and is at the same time the most comprehensive and complex of them, as it brings together and affects the most stakeholders.
