Increasing the circularity in electronics value chains

Increasing the circularity in electronics value chains

Proposal results are expected to contribute to all of the following outcomes:

  • Increased deployment and demonstrated benefits of advanced digital solutions (e.g., through AI, robotics, IoT and blockchain) in circular businesses including waste management and recycling;
  • Emergence of new value chains using upcycled and/or recycled resources;
  • Increased upcycling and recycling rates for the targeted material streams;
  • Increased uptake of recycled material and upcycling to new higher-value products;
  • Increased resource efficiency along and across value chains, causing a measurable reduction in GHG emissions and other environmental pollution and an increase of carbon removals;
  • Increased diffusion of new circular business practices, in particular in the uptake of repair, reuse and remanufacturing, but also practices that form part of the sharing economy.
