Advanced recycling technologies & greener electronics solutions to create a closed-loop circular economy for consumer & industrial electronics. Online & On-Demand: The Latest Recycling Technologies, Strategies & Sustainable Materials Solutions To Reduce & Manage The Climate Impact of Present, Future & Disruptive E-Waste. For this one-off second event, 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. “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.
