The project falls under the theme of “Global recirculation of strategic metals: Best of Two-Worlds approach” seeking opportunities for recycling of strategic materials found in e-waste. In light of the rising shortage in primary raw material on one hand, and the environmental burden of unexploited waste in the developing world on the other hand, the best of two-worlds approach aims to close global raw material life cycles while optimizing the environmental and social return in the developing world. It covers precious metals and critical resources (e.g. platinum group metals and rare earth) as well as base metals (e.g. aluminum, lead and copper) that can be found in (vehicles, electronic equipment, etc.) assessing secondary resources in Egypt and Ghana as well as implementing pilot projects for collection and pre-treatment.
