E-transformer – solar multimedia vehicle prepared by ZEOS under the Life+ project Slovenia WEEE Campaign “ODLO?UJ!” is going on a summer tour around Slovenia.
With the mission of raising awareness of environmental issues related to the production and use of electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE), proper handling of WEEE and its treatment and recovery (including reuse and recycling) E-transformer will visit the largest Mercator shopping malls throughout Slovenia in July and August.
On Friday the 13th July, ZEOS presented it’s latest addition to the Life+ Slovenia WEEE campaign - E-transformer. A multimedia mobile caravan equipped with solar panels is actually a folding truck, equipped with the latest multimedia and lighting equipment, fully powered by its own solar power plant installed on the roof of the trailer. The latter was enabled and set up by Slovenian solar company Gorenje Solar. The mobile caravan, which will tour around Slovenia in the coming school year, intends to visit 200 Slovenian schools with the mission of raising awareness about the importance of proper management of WEEE.
