The Step Inititiative - Always stay informed

The project aims at developing integrated solutions for pre-processing of electronic equipment, closing the loop of post-consumer high-grade plastics, whilst recovering critical raw materials including antimony and graphite.

CloseWEEE focuses on secondary raw materials and aims at improving the separation and recovery of the following target materials:

  • Advanced recovery of valuable plastic streams (PC-ABS and ABS) which do not have a scheduled recycling system yet
  • Resource-efficient and innovative recovery of additives, critical minerals and metals from WEEE streams
  • Improve the flow of information to recyclers through a Recycler Information Center in order to make recycling procedures quicker and safer
