Services

1. Product recycling analyses:

Description: Analyses of individual products and their recyclability parameters: environmental scores, end-of-life cost/ revenue, cost breakdown per compliance scheme. Results can be used as feedback to design departments and for compliance costs modelling and determining preferred strategies.

2. EU Compliance Cost modelling

Description: Total cost modelling for European compliance schemes, scenario analysis, accruals, total fees. Compliance cost modelling can help to determine strategies to reduce total compliance costs in various regions in the world and also demonstrate the relevance of lobbying work to lower costs as well as for accounting purposes to determine current and future financial impacts.

3. Compliance cost strategies: product market legislation combinations

Description: Scenario analyses of product portfolio, European markets and legislative options per EU member state. The scenario analyses allows to develop strategies to minimise costs on the short and long term for instance for specific compliance schemes. The relation between product costs and different countries can help to determine ways to lowest costs of compliance for instance by being a member of the most efficient take-back systems.

4. Chain analysis (with QWERTY/EE)

Description: Eco-efficiency chain analyses for compliance schemes and authorities. QWERTY and EE scores for various technical, design, policy and system organisational configurations. The chain analyses can help various stakeholders to determine the most relevant materials, products and recycling technologies in order to come to more eco-efficient take-back systems.

5. Multi-stakeholder roadmapping, global take-back and recycling lessons

Description: Roadmapping and steering multi-stakeholder discussions on WEEE, information exchange between regions, countries and continents on best practices and lessons learned. This service can help to learn different regions and countries in the world to learn from best practices and experiences in other regions. Such work also includes taking into account cultural differences between regions and the impact on the organisation of take-back and recycling.

6. Recycling policy evaluation and development; take-back system development; impact assessment

Description: Closely related to 4: Evaluation and delivering of options to develop more efficient recycling policies. It can help legislators and policy makers to answer specific policy questions like inventories on potential environmental problems, the impacts of various policy scenarios, the interrelation between various policy and non-regulatory instruments, indicators for measuring performance.

7. Recycling technology evaluation

Description: Environmental and eco-efficiency evaluation of technologies, assessment of Best-Available Technologies. This service can help to compare or optimise recycling technologies with respect to environmental, economic performance as well as comparing weight based and environmentally based recycling targets.

8. System and process auditing (Eco-efficiency)

Description: Self-optimisation, auditing of recyclers and systems. This service can help recyclers and take-back systems to perform (external) audits on recycling performance, functioning of processes or even providing a black-box function to report on destinations of materials fractions without exposing economic and competition sensitive information.

9. Seminars multi-stakeholder meetings on RoHS, WEEE, waste management

Description: Seminars on WEEE, RoHS and other relevant environmental legislation. With all expertise in the team and already existing training materials on WEEE and RoHS, the service consist of providing seminars and workshops on WEEE and RoHS for all stakeholders in all regions in the world.

10. WEEE peer review of studies

Description: Review of other studies in the field. Review of self-declaration by stakeholders.

11. WEEE info center and forum

Description: Providing information on WEEE implementation and transposition status and details. One of the ideas is to develop a global internet forum on ewaste where the latest development and news can be placed online and be discussed as well.

12. Ecodesign advice

Description: General ecodesign advice for producers, assistance in environmental benchmarking and support towards various company departments to realise structural ecodesign improvements.

13. Organisational design related to take-back systems

Description: Support for setting up new take-back systems and improvement of existing ones.

14. RoHS implementation and exemptions

Description: RoHS related advice on the implementation in the EU-25 and similar initiatives in other countries as well as (technical) advice on potential exemptions and the process to request exemptions.
