Fast Tracks: a requirement for a Circular Economy for WEEE

Chris Slijkhuis EERA Board member

The current way how waste shipments are organized should undergo a serious re-think, as it impedes proper recycling rather than supporting this. The presentation will dig into the procedures for shipping waste across borders, it will share the experience of how a new classification of plastic waste was introduced and how Switzerland and Ghana have proposed to name all E-Waste as hazardous waste. E-Waste is an important raw material for valuable secondary raw materials, of executed properly and therefore compliant E-Waste recyclers need to get easy access to these raw materials.
