COLLECTION OF HOME DÉCOR GLASSWARE, USING MATERIAL FROM WASTE ELECTRONIC APPARATUS WHILE KEEPING THE DNA OF THE ORIGINAL PRODUCT

The project

The project aims to create a valid economic cycle for those currently “problematic” second cycle resources. Currently silicate residues from household appliances are not recycled. On the contrary they cause disturbance for the recycling of other materials.
The main challenges for the project are the economic viability and the technical feasibility.
Collaboration with relevant partners are key to overcome such challenges.
