Spanish empties collector Bioservice has announced that it has been selected to participate in the Momentum Project Spain 2014, allowing it to access the programme’s training plan, strategic support and possible funding to scale its projects.

Out of 193 companies that inquired about the programme, only 10 companies were selected, which has been organised by ESADE, BBVA and PWC. It will offer Bioservice training with ESADE teachers to prepare its Strategic Plan 2014-2018 to increase the company’s social impact, employ more disabled people and collect more empty cartridges.

As one of the first steps of its Strategic Plan, the company has finalised its move to a new 1,625 square-metre warehouse which will allow it to increase its collection and diversify to other services of waste collection, as well as to specialise in niche products. The new warehouse is equipped with a room for inkjet sorting and inspection as well as a laser inspection site, with every cartridge undergoing an inspection process “to guarantee the quality” of each empty.

Bioservice was founded in 2009 with five workers, but now employs 14 people, 13 of whom are disabled. It exports to countries in Europe, Asia, and North America.
