Its business model is based on obtaining raw materials from waste applying innovative technologies such as granulators to recover copper and plastic from the cables. "In addition, we have already completed the design of two prototypes with Tecnoparque that will allow us to recycle of other electronic elements," says Jackeline Redondo, head of the company. This company looks at the future with optimism: "With the entry into force of new Post-consumption resolutions and the other regulations enacted by the Ministry of the Environment, the market and potential customers of the company will expand."

Gesecol expects to increase its unconventional waste management capacity by more than 15% in the short term, reducing the exposure to pollution of more water or land resources while generating, at the same time, new jobs. "We are one of the very few companies in the environmental sector with a trade mark and, being from the environmental services sector, our social function is quite high".
