She will be present at this campaign ECOTIC Caravan, the mobile museum of waste electrical and electronic equipment. The foray into the world of electrical waste recycling through this interactive tool makes those who visit it understand the importance of separate collection, through the lens of recyclable but also dangerous materials that can be recovered from equipment. A virtual tour of the ECOTIC Caravan is available here.
"ECOTIC is and has been over time a strategic partner of the Faculty of Environmental Science and Engineering at Babeș-Bolyai University. We carried out many actions together in the field of selective collection of WEEE and a large part of their success was due to the professionalism and involvement of ECOTIC in transmitting the message of these campaigns to society. This topic is of utmost importance to UBB, contributing to the UBB Goes Green strategy (http://green.ubbcluj.ro/en/) and to the directions of education, research, and the relationship with the socio-economic environment of UBB in the sphere of the circular economy."
