The project provided the information necessary for competent authorities and administrations in Albania in order to plan and implement a coherent system for the disposal of used mineral oils, taking into account the experiences made in EU countries in the past 20 years, the particular situation in Albania, the development perspectives of this sector for the next 10 years as well as economical and ecological aspects.
Different official authorities and/or National Focal Points of the RAC/CP and national and international companies and institutions directly involved in all areas concerning used oils were consulted in order to incorporate the information provided and thus obtain a better understanding of the situation in Albania.
The project generated information about:
• technical possibilities for treatment of used mineral oils and made it available for competent authorities
• evaluated experience in EU countries
• and drafted a Decision on the regulations and Procedures on the Disposal of Used Oils.
