E-Waste Challenges & Opportunities
As the world’s appetite for electronics continues to increase, so does the growing international crisis of managing and dealing with discarded consumer, commercial and industrial electronics. With more than 50 millions tonnes of E-Waste produced in 2018, only 20% of which is currently recycled, it’s no wonder that numerous experts have called for global action to help tackle the world’s fastest growing waste stream.
By bringing together policy-makers, environmental experts, manufacturers, waste management companies recyclers, and research organisations, we will explore the E-Waste challenges & opportunities to help create a unified global effort on tackling the issue. With more than US$62.5 billion in materials and precious metals piling up in global E-Waste, we will also be discussing the commercial opportunities, technologies and strategies to harvest and recover raw materials and move towards a circular economy, in doing so ensuring E-Waste is seen a valuable resource rather than ‘waste’.
