Specialized Business Systems AD is a leading Bulgarian ICT system integrator, well known on the Bulgarian and European market.

Started as a youth initiative of VMEI Sofia graduates in 1990, today SBS AD is a public joint-stock company traded on the Sofia Stock Exchange with investors such as Stolichna Municipal Bank, pension and investment funds.

We are proud to be a supplier and integrator to the public administration in Bulgaria, including the Ministry of Environment and Water, the Executive Agency for Environment and Water and many others.

One of the directions in which we work is increasing the quality of life and protecting the environment for future generations. We implement this through our subsidiary Ekoplast Bulgaria. Part of the initiative includes encouraging consumers to collect and recycle single-use packaging. This helps to limit the amount of waste, preserve a clean environment and contributes to a circular economy.

With RVM technology, we envision a world where all individuals, families and organizations contribute to the collection and reuse of recyclable packaging. To achieve this, society needs a system that allows citizens to conveniently deposit empty packaging.

RVM /reverse vending machine/ – packaging buyback machines allow citizens to deposit recyclable aluminum cans, plastic bottles and cups (PET) into the machine, in exchange for coupons (in paper or electronic version). These coupons can be exchanged for material prizes or rights to use municipal services – public transport, parking, theater tickets, taxis and others. With the cooperation of the business, coupons can be used as a means of payment or discounts at supermarkets, pharmacies, bookstores and other related businesses, based on the quantity and type of materials deposited.
