Closing The Loop on The Global E-Waste Challenge

Register Before 9th November & Save €300

The Very Latest Technologies, Advanced Recycling Systems, Strategies & Sustainable Materials Solutions To Reduce & Manage The Climate Impact of Present, Future & Disruptive E-Waste

Following on from the resounding success of – and unanimous positive reception to – the launch event in November 2019, E-Waste World Conference & Expo will return in 2020 with another superb, must-attend two-day international conference and exhibition dedicated to all areas of WEEE – past, present, future and disruptive. With a similarly holistic outlook to the inaugural showcase, we are staging a truly unique platform to discuss and showcase the latest recycling technologies, materials recovery solutions, green electronics, sustainable materials, non-toxic substitutes, and end-of-life strategies, as well as regulatory and business models to help reduce the environmental impact of all forms of consumer and industrial E-Waste. We will once again focus on those streams on the horizon, including lithium-ion batteries from e-mobility transportation, PV panels, wearables, IoT, 5G and much more. And new to the conference this year will be a dedicated fourth track on ‘E-Reuse’.

For this bigger and better second event, though, we will bring together many more – and crucially different – globally renowned experts from consumer and industrial electronics manufacturers and suppliers, E-Waste recyclers and waste management companies, recycling technology manufacturers, electric vehicle battery makers and their value chain suppliers, critical raw materials experts, precious metal recovery experts, sustainable materials and chemicals suppliers, ITAD, science and academia, policy-makers, NGOs, research institutions and consultants.

Some of the Organizations that Attended in 2019 Include:

“Modern life is unthinkable without IT, yet this technology is responsible for the fastest-growing waste stream globally. New clean technologies are being developed to save our climate, yet there is still insufficient awareness of the massive amounts of e-waste these will generate. To continue to rely on vital technologies without lasting environmental damage, we must move from the focus on e-waste management to a holistic approach encompassing all industries and all stages of the product life-cycle.
