CLOSEWEEE project with EU fundings: CloseWEEE will develop integrated solutions for pre-processing of electronic equipment, closing the loop of post-consumer high-grade plastics, whilst recovering critical raw materials including antimony and graphite.
CloseWEEE focuses on secondary raw materials and aims at improving the separation and recovery of the following target materials:
Advanced recovery of valuable plastic streams (PC-ABS and ABS) which do not have an scheduled recycling system yet
Resource-efficient and innovative recovery of additives, critical minerals and metals from WEEE streams
Improve the flow of information to recyclers through a Recycler Information Center in order to make recycling procedures quicker and safer

Switzerland: IMMARK - a pioneer and market leader in the disposal and recycling of electronic scrap. Based on the principles of a recycling economy, working out effective technical solutions in the separating technique sector and are generating valuable raw materials. achieved recycling rate of 95 per cent, we are by far above the legal requirements of the WEEE Directive (European Union Directive on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment).

Austria: Saubermacher - Austrian pioneer and market leader; very innovative in recycling technologies as well as in digital business solutions to create transparency in waste streams over the hole logistic process.

Bandyopadhyay, Amitava. (2008). A regulatory approach for e-waste management: A cross-national review of current practice and policy with an assessment and policy recommendation for the Indian perspective.

International Journal of Environment and Waste Management. 2. . 10.1504/IJEWM.2008.016998.  (download)

This paper attempts to make an assessment and policy recommendation for the Indian perspective through a cross-national review of current practice and policy. It also addresses in a transition economy with some reference to policies and practices in other transition economies. It has been shown that existing Hazardous Waste Rules could overturn the necessity of a separate national legislation dealing with e-waste alone after it is being configured to accommodate e-waste for its management in India. The regulatory approach proposed could serve as a model or at least a starting point for other transition countries that may not be so far along as India with respect to management of e-waste. Reference to this paper should be made as follows: Bandyopadhyay, A. (2008) 'A regulatory approach for e-waste management: a cross-national review of current practice and policy with an assessment and policy recommendation for the Indian perspective', Int. J. Environment and Waste Management, Vol. 2, Nos. 1/2, pp.139–186. Biographical notes: Amitava Bandyopadhyay is an Environmental Engineer of the West Bengal Pollution Control Board that implements various Environmental Rules and Regulations. He did his BTech from the Calcutta University, MTech and PhD in Chemical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur. Initially, he worked in a trans-national organisation in carrying out EIA and Hazop Studies, Risk Analysis, conceptual designing of ETP and Air Pollution Control systems. Besides his active background in teching, his major research areas include waste minimisation, advanced separation methods and emission control. Incidentally, he has gained experiences in almost all fields of Environmental Science and Engineering.
