Project summary

Waste from Electrical and Electronic Equipment is one of the fastest growing waste streams globally. Also, in North-West Europe. Electrical and electronic goods are easily replaced for low prices, meaning life cycles become shorter in order to decrease the e-waste stream. The E6 project, or ‘Ecosystems for Extended-lifetime of End-of-Use Electrical and Electronic Equipment’, involves 19 partners across Europe. The aim of the partnership is to promote the transition to a circular and resource efficient economy. By facilitating Re-use, Repair, and Refurbishment (RRR) practices that we go from a ‘buy-first’ to a ‘repair-first’ mindset. 

E6 partners develop a joint strategy and action plan to create 6 types of tools; awareness creation, decision support, flow management, business models, data management and integration. Six regions within the project will test these tools with key stakeholders, from re-use shops to waste management parks and new repair and refurbish business, but foremost with citizens. The project prioritizes the user perspective so citizens know where they can go with their devices. Valuable knowledge and experiences are shared between the 19 European partners to use and build upon innovations, create durability, and resilience in the RRR of electrical and electronic equipment. As a result an example model is developed that can be used by regions across NWE. E6 aims at building towards a EEE circular transition strategy in European policy.

Together, we aim to extend the lifetime of electrical and electronic equipment, for a more sustainable future.
