CEWASTE – Voluntary certification
scheme for waste treatment

Certifying the WEEE treatment in order to increase the Critical Raw Materials recovery

Project duration: 2018 - 2022

The CEWASTE Project goal is to improve the Critical Raw Materials recovery from specific types of waste, including WEEE, through the development of a sustainable process for the whole treatment chain. CEWASTE therefore proposes to launch a voluntary certification scheme for the waste collection, the transport and the treatment, of WEEE and batteries containing a significant quantity of Critical Raw Materials.

At ECODOM, we are committed to analysing the current limitations and obstacles associated with the Critical Raw Materials recycling and to ensuring that the certification scheme designed by the Project is efficient and lasting. We will also take charge of sharing the obtained results with the key players operating in the WEEE sector.
