  • Agorà Ariminum – Circular Economy Area D1 pav.
  • Italian
  • organized by Ecomondo STC & ERION (Multi-compliance non-profit System for the management of different types of waste)

The current global and European context is pushing the electrical and electronic equipment sector towards adopting strategies based on the circular economy. The goal is to increase the amount of materials derived from waste, thus encouraging greater waste collection by both consumers and professional entities, such as offices and industries. Through the presentation of virtuous practices to optimize waste management, innovative solutions along the product value chain of high-tech products will be discussed, as well as the opportunities offered by regulatory developments, such as the packaging regulations, battery regulations, the CRM Act and the upcoming revision of the WEEE Directive. Initiatives involving three supply chains related to advanced technology products will be explored: electrical and electronic equipment (EEE), batteries and accumulators, and electronic product packaging.
