Integrating the Supply Chain for the Recovery of Critical Raw Materials from WEEE

A European conference around CRM recovery.

 

This conference aims to assess the barriers to improved recovery and recycling of critical raw materials CRMs throughout the whole supply chain from the logistics of collection to advanced recovery techniques. The conference will be of interest to those responsible for the commissioning and delivery of recycling and waste collections, sustainability managers and experts in multiple industry sectors, and researchers offering advanced recovery options for end of life products.

The presentations and panel discussions will provide a key opportunity to discuss the importance of integrating the whole life cycle of reuse and recovery to achieve long term sustainable solutions to the issue of recovery of critical materials from end-of-life products.


The CRM Recovery project team are organising the event. It is EU LIFE funded and attendance to the conference is free.

The event will also have space for a limited number of free exhibition stands. If you are interested in exhibiting, please contact criticalrawmaterialrecovery@wrap.org.uk
