INDUSTRY SOLUTIONS FOR THE WORLD’S FASTEST-GROWING WASTE STREAM

About the Event

E-WASTE World Conference & Expo is a two-day international conference and exhibition dedicated to discussing the latest recycling technology, 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.

The event will bring together more than 80 globally renowned experts from consumer and industrial electronics manufacturers and suppliers, E-Waste recyclers and waste management companies, recycling technology manufacturers, materials recovery experts, sustainable material and chemical suppliers, science and academia, policy-makers, NGOs, research institutions and consultants.

The Growing Problem of E-Waste

  • Every year we generate 50 million tonnes of E-Waste, only 20% of which is ‘officially’ recycled. This is set to double to 120 million tonnes annually by 2050.
  • E-Waste represents just 2% of solid waste but 70% of the hazardous waste that ends up in landfill – deadly toxins such as arsenic, cadmium, lead, mercury, chromium, polybrominated flame retardants, barium and lithium, to name a few.
  • Containing high-value and scarce materials such as gold, platinum, cobalt and rare earths, the economic value of electronic waste produced each year is €55 billion.
  • In 2018, there were 3 million electric vehicles on the roads – that could be 125 million by 2030, meaning more than 11 million tonnes of lithium-ion batteries entering the waste stream.
  • There could be 60 million tonnes of photovoltaic panels lying in landfills by 2050. Yet 96% of the materials in a PV panel can be recycled, which is a potential material influx that could produce 2 billion new panels worth US$15 billion.
