Posted by aclimaadmin | 26/05/2023 | Sector News
A major Italian utility has launched an open innovation challenge, targeted at start-ups, seeking innovative solutions to deal with Waste from Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE). The selected solver will be given the opportunity to start a PoC (Proof of Concept).

Full description

In 2022, in Italy, just over 361,000 tonnes of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) were properly recycled by collective systems of producers, indicating a decrease of 6.2% compared to the previous year. This trend needs to be reversed as the proper disposal of WEEE waste is vital for safeguarding the environment we live in and can contribute to addressing the growing scarcity of valuable resources. The challenge aims to identify innovative solutions that support citizens in the correct disposal of these waste materials, creating a virtuous cycle that encourages reuse and reduction. In this context, citizens play a vital role and can actively contribute to building a sustainable future for future generations and promoting more conscious and responsible use of resources. This technology request is part of an innovation challenge and is published on an open innovation platform. Potential solvers will be guided through the submission process. Submission deadline: 30/06/2023.

Technical Specification or Expertise Sought

The applicant should be able to propose an innovative solution for a proper disposal and recycling of Waste from Electrical and Electronic Equipment.
