Reuse first – Resource efficient electronics

Waste electrical and electronic equipment is the fastest growing waste stream in Europe. Increased reuse could reduce waste, resource use and environmental impacts. Through literature studies, site visits, surveys and interviews with stakeholders, the project will create improved conditions for increased collection rates and increased reuse of these products and their components. Measures to improve the current system and provide for new solutions that complement the current system will be identified, tested and evaluated. The project involves various actors, such as recycling centers, re-use business, shops, producers and consumers, through interviews, questionnaires, as well as generation, testing and evaluation of measures. The solutions that will be presented and evaluated will be formulated with starting point in a number of different actors' needs, including users. Preconditions for further development and implementation will be described.
