PolyCE workshop on Circular design of electrical and electronic equipment - The post-consumer recycled plastics challenge
PolyCE (Post-Consumer High-tech Recycled Polymers for a Circular Economy) is a Horizon 2020 funded project which has taken the challenge to improve recycling of plastics waste from electric and electronic equipment (EEE) and to show the feasibility of integrating post-consumer recycled plastics (PCR) back into new high-value applications.
Goals of the workshop:
- Provide an overview of the main challenges for circular design of EEE, taking the perspectives of designers and manufacturers as well as recyclers of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE).
- Show best practices for circular design and share experiences with the integration of recycled plastics in new EEE.
- Provide hands-on solutions to concrete design challenges brought by the workshop participants supervised by Philips, Whirlpool, Pezy, MGG Polymers, Fraunhofer IZM, UL and KU Leuven.
- Designing with recycled plastics: limitations and opportunities (Pezy)
- Challenges of integrating PCR plastics in large household appliances (Whirlpool)
- Design for WEEE recycling (Fraunhofer IZM & MGG Polymers)
- PCR plastics testing, quality and requirements (KU Leuven & UL)
- Market platform for PCR plastics (TU Berlin)
Time and venue: 11th September 2019 | 09:00 – 17:30 | Philips Amsterdam Head office
