Description of the activity that will develop the new partners:
- ECOAUTO CÁDIZ BAHÍA, S.L. is the company where the decontamination is going to be performed doing studies and experience, so where part of the operation of the pilot plant will be made.
- CHATARRAS IRUÑA S.A., is the company responsible of performs fragmentation testing vehicle was previously decontaminated at its facilities in Pamplona. It will perform comparative analyzes with the Cadiz plant and propose previous proposals disassembly..
After studying different locations in Spain, it was decided to locate the Project in Navarra. some of the different evidence were conducted in different facilities of Pamplona (Navarra) and others in the bay of Cadiz (Cadiz).
