European ECOsystem for greeN Electronics
The main aim of the EECONE project is to reduce e-waste on a European scale.
The environmental impact arising from e-waste can thus be reduced by working in three principal areas:
- Increase service lifetime of electronic products by application of ecodesign guidelines for increasing their reliability and their repair rate, thereby reducing the volume of e-waste. Reduction and replacement of materials to decrease the impact of e-waste.
- Reduction and replacement of materials in electronic components and systems to decrease the impact of e-waste.
- Improved circularity by reusing, recycling, and waste valorising materials/elements from electronic products.
EECONE's vision is to develop and embed the constraints linked to managing the end-of-life of electronic products from the very beginning - in the development or process design. EECONE is paving the way as a first step toward a zero-waste electronic industry. The "6R concept" will fully guide EECONE (Reduce, Reliability, Repair, Reuse, Refurbish, Recycle).
EECONE is a major opportunity to create a European ECOsystem for greeN Electronics and to position Europe as a role model for low environmental impact electronics.
