International Electronics Recycling Congress Now Accepting Papers

July 21st, 2011 · 3 Comments

11th International Electronics Recycling Congress (IERC 2012)

The Steering Committee of the 11th International Electronics Recycling Congress (IERC 2012) is now seeking papers to be presented at its upcoming conference, Jan. 18-20, 2012, in Salzburg, Austria.

The preliminary program includes sessions on:
• Rare earth recovery
• More products in more markets and shorter lifetimes
• Expansion of product take-back initiatives
• War on raw materials
• Extended producer responsibility
• Best available technologies and plants for WEEE recycling
• Worldwide reports of recycling business
• How to stop illegal export
• WEEE recast and worldwide legal developments
• Global harmonization of recycling standards and laws

The congress is also offering plant tours to:
• Lighting and flat screen recycling facility
• Electronics recycling facility
• Steel mill with plastics recovery
• Scrap and waste treatment plant
• Copper smelter
• Plastics recycling plant

The new emphasis on rare earth recovery is timely as a recent study by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) revealed that low level of recycling of specialized minerals such as neodymium, dysprosium, and lanthanum can severely hamper production of advanced clean technology vehicles.

Anyone who is interested in presenting papers before the Congress is asked to submit a proposal before July 29, 2011. Download Call For Papers (PDF) and submit completed form to:

    This is an awesome opportunity for researchers to present their studies on electronic recycling. I hope that even ordinary consumers will do their part in preserving the environment and minimizing climate change.

    I think this was an interesting event. Do you have follow up posts on the topics that were discussed during the convention? We all need to do our part in recycling these days. I am glad I got
    cash for phones
    week. I didn’t need those old phones and they only add clutter at home. Thanks for sharing.
