Introduction

Rapid technological changes and price reduction of new technologies in televisions and monitors have lead to a massive renovation of these appliances and the consequent withdrawal of old technological equipment based on the Cathode Ray Tube. (CRT)

In 2010 alone, Spanish households will remove more than 1 million television sets, according to the Spanish Federation of Recovery and Recycling (FER). The main causes are the transition to digital television, which has spurred sales of flat screen TVs with DTT incorporated, as well as the promotion of distribution chains.

The Provincial Council of Valencia, along with project partners, aware of the environmental issues, due to the accumulation of these residues at clean points and the lack of alternatives for recycling, has proposed the Eco-vitrum project.
