SA. ENG S.r.l.



SA.Eng manufactures plants for WEEE and refrigerators recycling. WEEE waste come from technology products i.e. home appliance (washing machines, vacuums, etc.), computers and other electric tools. 

In today's consumer-driven economy, there is a steadily increasing amount of WEEE and this leads to an increasing risk of it being discarded in the environment or in landfills. The consequence is an enormous level of soil, air and water pollution, with strong repercussions on human health.

WEEE can be divided into 5 categories: 

  • W1: WEEE i.e.  Air conditioning and refrigerators
  • W2: screens and monitors
  • W3: lamps 
  • W4: large electronic waste
  • W5: small devices 
  • W6: telecommunications equipment

According to the WEEE Disposal Report, almost 7% more e-waste was managed in the last 2 years. There is an increase in WEEE production, but at the same time, the amount of materials that make up electronic waste that can be recycled is also growing. This is an improvement in terms of material recovery of WEEE and refrigerators

Not only WEEE: Refrigerators are important too, since they contain gases dangerous for the environment. The treatment of refrigerators mainly needs a delicate plant that not only allows the metal and plastic parts to be recovered, but also the proper disposal of the gases contained in the refrigerant circuits.

How to dispose of WEEE?

  1. Process of securing and collecting hazardous components
  2. Disassembling the various parts of WEEE
  3. Material recovery processing 

The collection and disposal of WEEE and refrigerators must be carried out entirely by companies specialised in WEEE recycle and disposal, such as SA.Eng. 

How to recover refrigerators? 
Refrigerators recovery has its own characteristics and the disposal plant proposed by SA.Eng represents an absolute technological record, both for the automation of the different treatment steps and for the high quality raw materials obtained at the end of the recycle process. The solution offered by SA Eng allows, starting from the whole refrigerator, to select and separate each material such as iron, plastic, aluminium, copper, polyurethane, and glass, completing the process with the suction and treatment of gases.

It was established at European level that e-waste must not be thrown in the bin but should be delivered to in the designated ecological areas without being mixed with other non-electronic waste. That is because WEEE are made of non-biodegradable substances and materials and, therefore, harmful for humans and environment.  
SA.Eng deals with the disposal of WEEE and refrigerators in total safety, providing assistance to the companies that need it. SA.Eng is the best solution for companies that need to dispose of WEEE and refrigerators. The plants for the recovery of WEEE and refrigerators are manufactured and installed in compliance with current norms in complete safety. SA.Eng takes into account the customers’ needs (spaces, etc.) by studying ad hoc plants for WEEE and refrigerators.
