A total of 31 centers have just been integrated into VALORCAR NETWORK for End of Life Vehicles (ELV) management and Battery and Accumulator Waste (RBA) collection, plus 26 exclusively for Battery and Accumulator Waste (RBA) collection, as a result of the selection contest launched by VALORCAR on May 3rd.
In the scope of this tender 75 applications were received, which were evaluated in order to guarantee that they have all the legally required licenses. In addition, all candidate facilities were surveyed to determine whether they comply with the minimum operating requirements (facilities and equipment) recently defined by the Portuguese Environment Agency. All the evaluation process was conducted by VALORCAR and audited by an independent entity.
VALORCAR NETWORK has thus been constituted by 310 ATFs, spread throughout all continental districts (292) and the autonomous regions of the Azores (11) and Madeira (7).
