Industry Focused Tracks

E-Waste World Conference & Expo will cover a number of highly targeted topics with a holistic approach to reducing the environmental impact of E-Waste. All 4  conference tracks will run in parallel for 2 days with attendees having the option to move freely between the different sessions.

E-Waste Recycling & CRM Recovery

Bringing together the world’s leading processors, recycling and recovery technology manufacturers, trade associations, research organizations, electronics producers and other industry stakeholders, this stream will showcase the innovative ways in which we are treating WEEE as a US$57 billion resource rather than harmful, toxic waste

  • Advanced and future technologies to dismantle, sort and separate materials, molecules and chemical elements in e-waste
  • Materials and methods for the remediation, recycling and treatment of plastic waste collected from WEEE
  • Global legislation and recycling channels for e-waste and extended producer responsibility
  • Economically viable business models to kick-start and promote a sustainable e-waste recycling sector
  • The future of e-waste in the circular economy
  • E-waste, regulatory consensus and control
  • Environmentally sound disposal and recycling of e-waste
  • Innovative frameworks for sustainable e-waste management

25+ Speakers, 2-Day Conference Track

Circular Electronics

This popular stream uniting the world’s leading electronics producers, research institutions, innovative entrepreneurs and technology developers will focus on how the technology sector can channel its expertise into reinventing the way that electronic devices are made and used in society

  • Innovations to make electronics easier and safer to disassemble at end-of-life
  • Increasing the use of recycled and recyclable materials and opportunities for bio-based alternatives
  • Product detox: concepts and real-world examples to reduce and eliminate the use of toxic chemicals such as arsenic, beryllium, cadmium, lead and mercury contained within electronic products
  • Rethinking planned obsolescence: lifetime, environmental impacts and circularity potentials
  • Taking responsibility for the supply chain footprint and end-of-life chain: refurbishment, take-back systems and recycling
  • Regulatory measures for electronics and ICT under the Ecodesign Directive: unravelling the regulatory barriers to circularity
  • Reducing raw material consumption by extending lifespans and sourcing re-usable materials

25+ Speakers, 2-Day Conference Track

Electric Vehicle Battery Recycling

Electric vehicle manufacturers, battery manufacturers, battery recyclers, research organizations and NGOs will come together to discuss the latest challenges for battery recycling and end-of-life solutions

  • Reduce, recycling or redesign?
  • Policy: The Batteries Directive, EPR, rules for second-life and ecodesign
  • Economic and environmental drivers for recycling EV batteries: trends, technological developments and the battery value chain
  • Security of supply
  • Sustainable batteries for a circular and climate neutral economy
  • Overcoming the technical and economic challenges of collecting, processing and recycling large batteries
  • Reducing reliance on mineral extraction
  • Realizing the vision of a circular economy in EV and battery production
  • Current and future options for recycling lithium-ion batteries: pyrometallurgy, hydrometallurgy and direct recycling
  • Increasing transparency of the battery market and the traceability of large batteries throughout their life-cycle

25+ Speakers, 2-Day Conference Track

Electronics Re-use, Remanufacturing, Refurbishment & ITAD

This fourth track at E-Waste World Conference & Expo will explore how ‘Re-use’ can contribute to keeping products, components and materials in the loop as part of a sustainable, effective re-use framework to prevent electronic waste. It will also explore the Innovative business models and strategies with the potential to contribute to a more resource-efficient circular economy for electronics

  • Expanding the circular economy beyond recycling: making a greater environmental impact by extending the useful life of electronics
  • Responsible re-use in a circular economy
  • Re-use in corporate programs
  • Value recovery in ITAD
  • The systematic and cultural barriers to electronics re-use encouraging sustainable consumer choices and promoting a culture of re-use
  • Re-use opportunities: a second life for old electronics
  • Right-to-repair: improving reparability, extending lifespan of products and tackling planned obsolescence
  • Data privacy and erasure
  • Environmental compliance
  • The EU’s Ecodesign Framework and how it impacts electronics producers and designers
  • Re-use’s relationship with existing WEEE recycling
