On January 17 of this year, the new Regulation of batteries, accumulators and the environmental management of their waste was published in the Boletin Oficial del Estado BOE in Spain, and the Royal Decree amending the 110/2015 of February 20, on waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE).
During the last few years, several updates have been made to this decree regulating the use of batteries, waste electrical and electronic equipment WEEE. In the current decree, several aspects are modified and new regulations are incorporated that propose a revolt to the current decree and seeks to be incorporated into the law of The European Parliament (EU) Directive 2018/849, which aims that the Union countries have more sustainable and competitive systems in order to reduce greenhouse gases. The main objective “to preserve and improve the quality of the environment, as well as to protect human health, ensure the prudent, efficient and rational use of natural resources and promote the principles of the circular economy”. according to the official journal of the European Union.
In the current Decree 27/2021, which is already in force, brings important changes for WEEE, including (LER-RAEE in spanish) EWC- WEEE (Explanation of Waste Categories) for the identification of waste batteries, accumulators and batteries considered hazardous and one of the most relevant aspects is that the regulation refers to electric thermos with polyurethane insulation must be managed in treatment plants with G2 process authorization, It also aims to improve the management of waste batteries, accumulators and other aspects such as collection conditions, storage, transport, WEEE collection fractions and classification according to LER-RAEE codes.
