The iNEMI Reuse and Recycling Metrics project team has been developing a practical means for assessing the circular economic value of information and communication technology (ICT) products. The team is proposing to incorporate a score factor metric that assigns reasonable impact value to product design features along with the ability to recover and return scrap value back to the market. Included in this scoring are aspects that are within the product designer’s control—such as material choice and ease of liberation of components and materials—and those aspects outside the product designer’s control — such as the availability of recovery technologies in the markets where the product is placed.
In line with this, iNEMI will be holding an end-of-project webinar on January 23–24, 2019, to review the metric and discuss what is next for the project, including how you can assist with future improvements. This webinar is open to members and non-members. For more details, including registration, click here.
