During his meeting in the contracted Waste Lubricating Oils regeneration unit facilities in Aspropyrgos, the Attica Regional Governor G.

During the guided unit tour, the Attica Regional Governor G. Patoulis, watched the functions of a pioneering and innovating management system which regenerates Waste Lubricating Oils and gives them back for re-use, with great benefits for the environment and the economy. The Attica Regional Governor was accompanied from the Attica Regional Civil Protection Vice-Governor and President of EDSNA. V. Kokkalis and the West Attica Regional Vice-Governor L. Kosmopoulos.
ENDIALE SA has developed a panhellenic co-operations network with Lubricating Oils companies, for the collection, transportation, storage and regeneration of Waste Lubricating Oils, which is the epitome of the new model of Circular Economy.
The right Waste Lubricating Oils management, through the collection, the regeneration and the re-use, crucially contributes to the environment protection, to the public health preservation and the raw material and energy saving, as the Waste Lubricating Oils are dangerous and toxic material.
According to the recently announced results of the 2019, ENDIALE SA exceeded again the annual collection goal (70% of the produced Waste Lubricating Oils) in a 102% rate (25.100 tons instead of the 24.600 tons goal), as well as the regeneration goal (80% of the collection quantity) in a 127% rate (25.100 tons instead of the 19.700 tons goal)

After the meeting completion, the Attica Regional Governor G. Patoulis stated the following:
“In our today meeting in the ENDIALE SA facilities, here, in Aspropyrgos, we had the joy and the chance to be informed and watch closely the very interesting process of the recycling and re-use of the Waste Lubricating Oils. It is an innovating and pioneering method with great development benefits, which is a model of the right Waste Lubricating Oils management, aiming to the protection of the environment.
It is my deep belief that the possibilities of making business in Attica have a great range and might contribute crucially in the financial boost of local communities.
As Attica Regional Government, in the frame of the strategic planning that we apply, aiming to boost the recycling in Attica so as to move to more modern ways of solid wastes treatment, we will support in practice every business and enterprise which is in this direction and has a development orientation.
As we found out during our today meeting, the process of recycling is becoming in the right way, as it is certified by the international recognition and the distinction of the particular unit.
I believe that this exemplary management is a prerequisite, which might become a strong incentive for many companies in order to claim more excellence in that field, and all together win the challenges of the right and effective wastes treatment.
Reaching to the conclusion, I would like to congratulate those who contribute in the right treatment of solid wastes, sending a message of hope that all together, we can form a better future for our children and lead Attica in development. We will be by their side and contribute in practice in that effort.”
