Designing Electrical and Electronics Equipment for the Circular Economy

Breakout Session 5 : Innovative Solutions II

Thursday, June 29th - 11:00am to 12:30pm

How the recycling of plastics from shredded waste electrical and electronics equipment (WEEE) fits within the Circular Economy is important. How existing EU legislation may influence activities of multinationals needs consideration. Beyond plastics and in an acceleration of circular economy, Dell and SABIC teamed together to produce new Dell products using recycled carbon fiber. The LCA results show that reclaimed carbon fiber has approximately a 67% lower carbon footprint than that of virgin carbon fiber.
