Technical reports

The producer compliance schemes of the WEEE Forum have acquired considerable know-how on the technical aspects of WEEE pre-processing and recycling, i.e. the risks related to treatment and hazards of certain types of WEEE. In addition, in collaboration with the United Nations University, a number of ‘WEEE flows’ studies have been conducted, identifying the volumes and types of WEEE that will be generated in the coming years.
