Increased use of consumer electronics has led to a growing public policy question: what to do with these products once they reach the end of their useful life? In addition, greater reuse and recycling of electronics containing chemistries – such as flame retardants – presents a challenge for the value chain in achieving circularity goals.
We will dive into the pursuit of a more circular economy that prioritizes resource conservation and efficiency, design innovations that enable longer product lifespans, and reuse, recycling, and recovery technologies to help capture the greatest value from materials.
Learn more about how different regions are addressing the challenges related to the recycling of electronics, and efforts to improve end-of-life recycling of materials containing chemistries that contribute to the safety and performance of products.
