Context and Objetive
Recovery of Critical Raw Materials (CRM) via recycling or re-use is highlighted in the European Commission Circular Economy Action Plan. The collection target of WEEE (Waste of Electrical and Electronic Equipment) is set at 45% of the amount of products put in the market in 2016 and will rise to 65% in 2019. Waste management stakeholders sometimes lack knowledge on current waste management and new development options in order to get a flow of CRM-containing materials back in the loop. WM-CRM project is integrally focused on the waste management with the aim to get as much CRM-containing materials or products back for recycling and re-use. Its objective is to set a MOOC and 2-day course for more intensive training on the problems of CRM’s and mismanagement of discarded CRM’s.
Targets: Governmental bodies, NGOs, WM companies, producers, students
