CEN Workshop on methodology to improve the recyclability rate of Critical Raw Materials from cars

The kick-off meeting was held online on December 13th. This workshop is related to two aspects: the identification of Critical Raw Materials (CRMs) embedded in car electronics and the information sharing among all the actors involved (for several reasons and with different roles) in automotive supply chains. This CWA defines a method to support all the automotive actors in identifying the presence of CRMs in car electronics and disassembling/separating/recycling these components in a proper way. The final aim is improving the recyclability rate of CRMs from cars, create a market for secondary CRMs and reuse CRMs in new high-value applications.

The stakeholders to be involved in this CEN Workshop were: Car parts suppliers, car makers, car dismantlers and shredders, academic and research, governmental authorities and non-governmental organization (NGOs).
