The WEEE directive 2002/86/EG defined WEEE as the end-of-life products from electrical and electronic equipment (EEE). An article entitled âSustainable electronic scrap recycling through individual process designâ has been published to show some preliminary results of the ongoing activities on WEEE Recycling at IME. This article highlights the accomplished results and shows some of main progress, and updates the future prospective in the research on WEEE recycling at the institution. To supporting a circular view of electrical and electronic equipment, it takes several stages from collection of end-of-life EEE to production of ânewâ materials from secondary raw sources. Following the classification, the preprocessing of electronic scrap takes places before any metallurgical treatment can be done to extract metals from it.
