Abstract


In Romania, the waste management activity is based on OUG 78/2000, which implements a series of directives of the Council of Europe. The Ministry of the Environment and the National Environmental Protection Agency (NAPP) are responsible for coordinating this activity. Modern production processes and increased needs of industrial companies have undoubtedly led to a considerable demand for the environment. Waste management also aims at saving natural resources by re-using recoverable parts. Waste management includes all waste collection, transportation, treatment, recovery and disposal activities. Responsibility for waste management activities lies with their generators in accordance with the "polluter pays" principle or, as the case may be, with producers in accordance with the "producer responsibility". The management of spent batteries and accumulators is governed by H.G. No.1132 / 2008 (regarding the regime of batteries and accumulators and waste batteries and accumulators) and applies to all types of batteries and accumulators, regardless of form, volume, weight, component materials or their use.
