The objectives

The Critical Raw Material (CRM) Closed Loop Recovery Project aims to increase the recovery of target CRMs by 5% by 2020 and by 20% by 2030. To achieve this, the project has invested in trials exploring novel ways to boost the collection and recovery of CRMs from WEEE.

Our role

ECODOM, responsible for the Italian trial, aimed to test out an innovative collection methodology based on the concept of ‘Collect More’ and ‘Collect Better’. Collect more by locating WEEE receptacles close to citizens, as part of dedicated large-scale collection activities implemented in Milan in public squares, grocery shops and school, with the aim of increasing the collection of target products characterized by high CRM content; collect better by developing appropriate procedures to make successive treatment steps less difficult, less time-consuming and thus more convenient. With the support of its partners, ECODOM dedicated the second phase of the trial to experiment improvements in treatment activities: testing and preparing for reuse the products having reuse potential; implementing recovery operations to increase current CRM recovery; developing new hydrometallurgical process to recover cobalt and graphite from batteries.
