System innovation


The aim of the CEWASTE project, funded by Horizon 2020, is to make the current models for recovering Critical Raw Materials (CRMs) from specific types of waste, including WEEE, more sustainable.

The program strategy provides for the introduction of a voluntary certification scheme for the collection, transport and treatment of waste containing a significant amount of CRMs.

The task of our experts is to analyse the current obstacles associated to CRMs recycling and study possible solutions for improving the efficiency and duration of the certification scheme. Among our tasks there is also that of sharing the results obtained with key players operating in the WEEE sector.
