Battery sorting workshop: WEEE Centre
In June, WorldLoop partnered with Stibat and Bebat* to facilitate training on battery sorting at the WEEE Centre Kenya. The workshop, conducted in accordance with the highest international standards, was undertaken in two parts which combined both theoretical and practical knowledge on battery sorting and storage.
Our colleague Marnick Vanlee attended the workshop at the WEEE Centre, where he and several WEEE Centre employees were taught the correct procedures for classifying the various batteries that are brought there, sorting them and storing them in a safe manner so that they can be transported to Europe for recycling.
*Both Bebat (BE) and Stibat or Stichting Batterijen (NL) offer new lives to used batteries by collecting, sorting and recycling them.
