Closing The Loop on The Global E-Waste Challenge


28-29 June 2023, Frankfurt Messe, Germany



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

E-Waste World Conference & Expo is returning to Frankfurt Messe in June 2023 as Europe’s largest international trade fair for the collection, sorting, processing, and reduction of all forms of electrical waste. WEEE and electrical waste is the world’s fastest growing waste stream and as we accelerate towards a world filled with more consumer electronics, the rise of electric vehicles, and the continued trend towards green energy that trend is set to grow. This year’s event will showcase more than 50 exhibitors in the free-to-attend exhibition and more than 85 expert speakers from around the world will take part in the expert conference sessions with over 500 participants expected to take part at this year’s fair.

Main topics discussed include, 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’.

Now in it’s third year this year’s event 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.

What’s on in 2023?

More Than 85 Speakers

Taking a holistic approach to the global WEEE crisis, an international line-up of expert speakers will present current and future technologies to extract maximum value from electronic and photovoltaic waste and end-of-life EV batteries. Plus, specialists in innovative circular materials and electronics products and E-Reuse business models will highlight their vital role in reducing and ultimately eliminating consumer and industrial e-waste

The Only Truly Global WEEE Event This Year

E-Waste World Conference & Expo attracts delegates from almost 60 countries worldwide and following a successful in-person launch in 2019 and an innovative virtual event in the pandemic-hit 2020, 2021 will see both audiences catered for with live and on-demand elements. Garnering rock-solid support from SERI, EERA, WEEE Forum and the Green Electronics Council, this is now the only place for the global WEEE sector to meet this year

50+ Exhibitors

An expanded exhibition floor will boast a wide range of innovative sustainability start-ups alongside the world’s leading WEEE recycling technology providers to help you maximize the efficiency and profitability of your recycling, recovery or ITAD operation. These globally renowned names are working with the biggest brands in electronics to ensure that all CRMs are recovered and re-used as we move toward a fully circular electronics sector where waste becomes a thing of the past

Organizations That Attended 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.
