Bulgaria – Major bulb and lamp recycling systems supplier Balcan Engineering of the UK has completed its first installation in Bulgaria. Balcan has developed a system for e-scrap firm Eltechresource JSC that processes up to 1500 linear tubes per hour alongside the processing of other types of lamp and bulb.
The MP4000 bulb and lamp recycling plant incorporates the latest technology to recycle all parts of lamps. It features dual loading areas for both linear fluorescent lighting as well as whole and crushed lamps.
