EERA (and 5 EERA linked partners, all EERA members) are participating in CEWASTE, voluntary certification scheme for waste treatment.
The CEWASTE project contributes to an improved recovery of valuable and critical raw materials (CRMs) from key types of waste through traceable and sustainable treatment processes in the entire supply chain of secondary raw materials. As such, CEWASTE will address the specific challenge to secure the sustainable access to CRMs for the EU economy and objectives set by the EU action plan for the Circular Economy, the issue of illegal trade of wastes within the EU and to non-EU countries, and the need to support the development of environmentally and socially sound recycling systems globally.
WRF is the project leader and in the consortium are represented Oeko Institut E.V, SOFIES S.A., UNU, Waste of Electrical and electronic equipment FORUM AISBL,European Environmental citizens organisation for standardisation, Austrian standardisation institute, SGS Fumko Oy.
The project has started at the end of 2018 and has a duration of two years. Link to more information: www.cewaste.eu
