Last November, Extreme Eco Solutions was in Brussels as a guest of Mrs. Bartolini, member of the cabinet of Euro Commissioner Canete (Climate action and Energy). The purpose of this enjoyable meeting was to see if our concept can contribute to reaching the European goals regarding CO2 reduction.
We can expect a second invitation, this time to a meeting with mr Mueller. He is a member of the cabinet of Euro Commissioner Vella (Environment, Maritime affairs and Fisherey Policy).

On behalf of ourselves and our partner Middenduin, we would like to sincerely thank everyone who, by contributing, have shown their faith in what we want to achieve!

As of September 2014, Extreme Eco Solutions has become part of the taskforce “More and Better Recycling” within the plastics industry, an initiative of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment. Other participants in this group are major market players active in the areas of expertise, manufacturing, raw materials production, and recycling.
Extreme Eco Solutions provides input based on real-life experiences gained within the composite branch, waste disposal and composites recycling in particular.

The overall goal of the taskforce is to assess existing recycling solutions as well as their future possibilities, in order to achieve higher efficiency by converting more processed waste into raw material. Over the long term these activities will require a thorough revision of established practices and erase current economic and technical boundaries. They will also demand more active participation of end-users and cooperation of all stakeholders.
