Critical Raw Material Closed Loop Recovery Project

Critical Raw Materials Closed Loop Recovery is to invest in trials to demonstrate innovative new methods for the collection and reprocessing of waste electronic and electrical equipment (WEEE) leading to increased recovery of target critical raw materials. The aim of the trails is to challenge current WEEE collection mechanisms and test opportunities for increased recovery of target materials graphite, cobalt, antimony, tantalum, rare earths, silver, gold and platinum group metals.


According to Scott Butler, UK and Ireland Regional Director of the European Recycling Platform: “the Critical Raw Material Recovery project is a major R&D project that will allow us to assess whether we can get more value from the WEEE that is collected and treated across Europe and explore further opportunities for improving the collection of end-of-life products. The benefits from these trials could have major benefits for producers and the circular economy, as well as the environment and society as a whole.”
