E-waste compensation and international financing mechanisms with Nigeria (ECoN)

Project description:

The project main objective is to advance the concept of ‘waste compensation’ where international brands and users of electrical and electronic equipment can contribute to a sound management of equivalent e-waste volumes in developing countries.
Sub-objectives are:

  1. Advance an existing solution for waste Li-ion batteries in a compensation scheme in Nigeria to achieve more local value-addition.
  2. Develop a sound and efficient solution for waste flat panel displays in an e-waste compensation scheme in Nigeria.
  3. Work out balanced and widely accepted comparison criteria to ensure that managed e-waste volumes are at least equivalent to the stated claims.
