Linking WEEE collection methods to reuse and recovery

The Step Inititiative - Always stay informed

Date: 27 February 2020
Time: 1-2:30 pm CET

During the webinar Mr. Sven Grieger will present the recently finalized LIFE Project “Critical Raw Materials Closed Loop Recovery” (CRM Recovery). Within this project WEEE collection methods were linked to re-use and recovery by conducting and evaluating a series of practical trials in four European countries. This presentation will share experiences and knowledge gained in cooperation with retailers, recyclers, compliance schemes and charities, and will introduce policy and infrastructure recommendations how to optimize WEEE collection and material recovery in future.

Sven Grieger has been developing take-back solutions and recycling technologies for electrical and electronic appliances for more than 20 years. He held managerial positions in different industries such as consultancy, consumer electronics and waste management as well as applied research. Since 2014, he is responsible for WEEE services at EARN and business development at the German research organisation Fraunhofer.
