EERA just released a new report based on the input from EERA members: " Sharing experiences and best practices Batteries in WEEE" .
EERA calls on all stakeholders, EU and national rule makers and authorities, to contribute to improving the safety of the collection and treatment of WEEE.
One of the main conclusions is that all the safety measures and further experience cannot eliminate the inherent risks associated with batteries. It is important that the dangers from waste batteries are addressed as early as possible in the collection and recycling chain.
EERA hopes that this report will contribute to raising more awareness among politicians and stakeholders about the risks of fires caused by batteries in WEEE. EERA is looking forward to contribute to reducing the risks of fires, caused by batteries in WEEE.
