Abstract:

Many different environmental impacts arise from electronics, and the handling of electronic waste (E-waste) is rising quickly to the top of the agenda. E-waste is a significant issue for Europe: improving its management is an explicit goal of the Green Deal objectives and the Circular Economy Action Plan. However, due to the requirement to involve the whole value chain, from raw material suppliers to consumers, the complex material background and supply chain, as well as the multitude of competing interests, achieving circularity in the electronics industry is challenging.

This project main goal is to reduce E-waste in Europe by managing existing E-waste, developing new tools to extend electronic devices lifetime and increasing recyclability of E-waste. Finally, the EECONE project will focus on deployment of new best practices at European level and on the development of a new strong ecosystem in this domain.
