  • Memo
  • Agorà Ariminum – Circular Economy Area D1 pav.
  • Italian
  • organized by Comitato Tecnico Scientifico di Ecomondo & ERION

The current European scenario of raw materials supply is pushing electronics and hitech industry to develop circular solutions to increasing the volumes of materials recovered from waste and consequently to increase the volumes of waste collected properly from consumers and from professional activities (e.g. offices, industrial sites). Initiatives involving four value chains associated to electronic products will be scrutinized: household and Professional WEEE, batteries/accumulators and packaging of electronics.
First of all, initiatives to quantify the potential volumes and environmental impacts of the proper collection and management of waste will be presented then it will be showcased good initiatives to increase the amount collected and recycled.

14.00-14.15 Introduction by the Chair 

14.15-15.15 Solutions to improve collection of waste associated to electronic products (EEE, batteries and accumulators, packaging)

  • initiative for the collection of small WEEE;
  • initiative for the collection of professional WEEE: the Exceed program;
  • how to improve the collection of packaging waste from electronic products;
  • modeling the future availability of CRM from WEEE and waste batteries.
